How to Disable the Caps Lock Key via the Registry in Windows

I am always annoyed by the caps lock on a laptop. I seem to hit it about 100 times a day while typing. It is especially annoying when writing code. I decided to peek into the registry and map the key from its key number to zero which effectively disables it. After disabling it via the registry I found a .reg file online which someone made to map the caps lock key to the control key. This didn’t really interest me so I modified it to map to nothing.
