How to prevent CAPS LOCK frustration in XP

I occasionally get mail from people who are frustrated because, due to their keyboard layouts or their own typing style, they are constantly hitting the CAPS LOCK key without intending to do so. If you never use it and it just gets in your way, you can disable it. You can manually edit the registry to disable it or you can download a .reg file to do so automatically:

If you don't want to disable it, another solution to the problem is to turn on Toggle Keys:

1. Click Start | Control Panel
2. In Classic View, click Accessibility Options.
3. In the dialog box, click the Keyboard tab.
4. Click the ToggleKeys box to check it.

Now when you hit CAPS LOCK, you'll hear a beep so you won't go blithely on typing in all caps. When you hear the beep, just hit CAPS LOCK again to go back to normal lowercase typing. Note that ToggleKeys also sounds a beep when you hit Scroll Lock or Num Lock.

Uppercase can be very bad, especially after naptime.
