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.
Just copy the following code to a file called caps.reg or whatever you want as long as it has the .reg extension. Then double click on the file and it will add it self to the registry. Once you reboot the caps lock key will be disabled.
- Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
- [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout]
- "Scancode Map"=hex:00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,02,00,00,00,00,00,3a,00,00,00,00,00
