Use Shift-Button to Turn off Caps-Lock, XP

Posted by Thomas On March - 19 - 2010

Are you still struggling with hitting CAPS-LOCK, when you were really trying to use the Shift-Button ? mAKING the text look all WEird ?

No, no, don’t bring out your hammer or get violent with your keyboard… That will only make things worse.

Back in the even older days when Typewriters ruled the office, you released the Caps-Lock button by pressing down the Shift-Button, thus it was never activated longer than needed.

This registry tweak will allow you to do just that. If you press Caps-Lock by mistake, then the Shift-button will shut it off for you. This should reduce the chances of you typing whole sentences or paragraphs SHOUTING at the reader.

NOTE!
This tip is for Windows XP users, but you might get it to work in newer versions of Windows as well
