How To Securely Disable The Caps Lock Key

Regardless of your computing environment and the tasks you perform on a daily basis, you will have the need to capitalize your keystrokes every now and then, by using the good old Caps Lock key on your computer's keyboard. Did you know, that you can completely disable Its functionality natively within Windows, without the use of third-party tools? Well, In this tutorial, I will show you how to do this In only a few simple steps.

I'd say It's very safe to assume that you're well aware of the Caps Lock key and the purpose It serves, so there's no point to elaborate on It. So what's the benefit of disabling It? Well, I'm glad you've asked! In terms of personal gain, more than anything else, It's most likely an Inconvenience. However, If you wish to play a prank on family and friends, then this tutorial will certainly fulfill your needs.

I will demonstrate how to completely disable the Caps Lock key from functioning, by using a neat little Registry file. All that's required on your part, Is to execute the file, follow a couple of prompts and the job's done. I have provided the download links to the Registry file, at the end of this article. So without further delay, let's get this tutorial started.

Step One:

Once you've downloaded the file, extract Its contents to a folder of your choice, and double-click the Disable Caps Lock.reg file. It will prompt whether to add the entries to the Windows Registry, so click Yes.

Step Two:

A message will be returned, confirming that the entries have been successfully added to the Windows Registry, so hit OK to finalize the process.

Step Three:

For the change to take effect, you need to either reboot your PC, or sign out and sign In again. I've done the latter as seen below.

Step Four:

I've now hit the Caps Lock key, and entered a short text In Notepad. As expected, It's In lowercase, hence the Caps Lock functionality Is securely disabled. A perfect result!

Last Step:

In the event you want to reverse the process and have full functionality of the Caps Lock key, simply double-click the Enable Caps Lock.reg file and hit Yes.

Final Thoughts:

Do note, that this does not disable nor prevent other means of capitalizing text, such as holding the Shift key on your computer's keyboard and pressing another key thereafter. It simply and solely disables the Caps Lock key per se. The good thing about It, Is that the process can be reversed just as easy as It Is to apply.

Use any of the links below to download the aforementioned Registry files.
