    I had a question on this a couple of days ago and received nothing but hate, infractions and a ban. Today, I will teach you how to disable the caps lock key if you ever run into any problems with it.

    Mac Version
    On the top left click the Apple symbol.
    Click System preferences.
    Under Hardware, click Keyboard.
    On the top, you have two tabs, one says keyboard, one says keyboard shortcuts. Click keyboard.
    On the bottom of that window, click "Modifier Keys".
    You now have a few options to replace some keys on your keyboard. For Caps Lock, click no action.
    Click ok and your caps lock key is now disabled Smile


    Windows Version

    To Toggle the CAPS LOCK Key On
    Use any text editor (such as Notepad) to create the following file:

    a 100
    mov ax,0040
    mov ds,ax
    or byte ptr [0017],40
    mov ah,1
    int 16
    mov ax,4c00
    int 21

    r cx
    0013
    n CAPS_ON.COM
    w
    q


    Save the file as Capson.deb
    Type the following line at a command prompt:
    debug < capson.deb
    This creates an MS-DOS-based program named Caps_on.com that toggles the CAPS LOCK key on.

    To Toggle the CAPS LOCK Key Off
    Use any text editor (such as Notepad) to create the following file:

    a 100
    mov ax,0040
    mov ds,ax
    and byte ptr [0017],bf
    mov ah,1

    int 16
    mov ax,4c00
    int 21

    r cx
    0013
    n CAPS_OFF.COM
    w
    q


    Save the file as Capsoff.deb
    Type the following line at a command prompt:
    debug < capsoff.deb
    This creates an MS-DOS-based program named Caps_off.com that toggles the CAPS LOCK key off.


    I hope this can help you stay out of trouble Claps

    A source is a source. As long as it's not portrayed as advertising it should be fine.

    Should be. That doesn't necessarily mean the staff members think it is.
