    caps lock notification


    I have a wireless keyboard with no light that tells you when caps lock is on. I have found where I can customize my task bar to show the "HP LED Indicator" on the task bar. When you click on that, it shows you whether caps lock, num lock and scroll lock are turned on. But it disappears after about 5 seconds. I want something that turns on and stays on when I hit caps lock (usually accidentally, because this new keyboard has really low profile keys compared with my old one and I'm constantly hitting the wrong keys!!!!!). I don't want to be clicking something to see the status, I just want to see at a glance!

    HP told me it's not possible to have that, but thought I'd check here too, on the Windows side of things...


    Just wondering if something like this would be my only option (and whether or not anyone has suggestions for reputable ones).

    Thanks for any tips you might have.

    Can you tell, by looking at the system tray, whether it is on or off? Or does the status only display at the time the caps lock key is used?

    Right now, I'm getting by with beeps (different one for on and off) that I think I found in the 'ease of access centre' in the control panel.

    Hello Laura,

    You might see if this may work for you to turn on to play a beep tone for when you press a toggle key. It'll at least let you know when you press it.

    Hope this helps,

    Thanks, that must be what I found back when I first asked the question.
