CAP LIGHT DOES NOT COME ON
Unlock the Caps on Computers The All-Caps or "Caps Lock" function causes all letters to appear as capital letters when typing into word processing documents, emails or other files. This is convenient when needing to type numerous capital letters or All-Caps phrases, as you do not have to hold down the "Shift" button with one finger as you type the words. When All-Caps is stuck and does not respond to the "Caps Lock" keyboard button, a simple procedure overrides and shuts down the function. Open a word processing program. Press the "Caps Lock" button located on the left side of the keyboard to turn Caps Lock off. Type inside the document. If lower case letters appear in the document, Caps are successfully unlocked. Proceed if the text is in All-Caps. Hold down "Shift" on the keyboard. Press the letter "P." A lower case "p" appears in the document. Release the "Shift" button. Type the phrase "rint" directly after the lower case "P." The word "pRINT" is now in the document, and the document cursor is after the phrase's "T." Press "Enter" on the keyboard. The cursor goes down one line and "pRINT" becomes "Print." The "Caps Lock" function is turned off. Restart the computer to save the setting.
Enable the Caps Lock Key The "Caps Lock" key is loved by some and disliked by others. The key turns all letters into capitals as you type. While this feature is useful in some situations, a more common occurrence is that the key is accidentally hit and all the text typed is capitalized. The person typing must then delete the capitalized type and rehit the key to turn off "Caps Lock." If the "Caps Lock" key needs to be enabled, it indicates that someone has disabled or remapped the key. If a user wanted to, the "Caps Lock" key can be disabled and enabled through the registry or remapped through the control panels.

Type "enable.reg" without quotes in the "File name:" field and click "Save." Minimize all open windows to view the desktop. Double-click on the "enable.reg" file. A box will pop up asking if you are sure you want to run the file. Select "Run" or "Yes" and then click "Yes" for the Registry Editor warning. Reboot the computer. The registry will be updated and the "Caps Lock" key will be enabled. b> Manually Update the Registry b> Click the "Start" menu, type "regedit" without the quotes and press "Enter." In older versions of Windows, Click the "Start" menu, select "Run," type "regedit" without the quotes and press "Enter." This will launch the Registry Editor. Navigate to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout" to view the settings. Right click on the "Scancode Map" setting and choose "Delete." Click "Yes" to confirm the deletion. Reboot the computer. The registry will be updated and the "Caps Lock" key will be enabled.

The Caps Lock key is beneficial if you want to type a long string of words entirely in capital letters, but this form of typing is not needed often. Consider disabling your Caps Lock key if you do not need it, or if you are tired of hitting the key accidentally while rapidly typing.
Restart your computer before beginning the process of disabling your Caps Lock key. Download the registry file necessary to disable your Caps Lock key. You have the option to disable your Caps Lock key or change the key to a number of different keystrokes. For example, you may choose to use the "ChangeCapsToShift" registry file if you want the Caps Lock button to function as a shift key. Double-click the registry file you have downloaded. A prompt will appear on your screen asking if you would like to add the registry file to your computer's registry. Select "Yes" to install the registry file. Restart your computer, once again, to complete the registry change. Upon reboot, your Caps Lock key will no longer function as a traditional Caps Lock key.
