Windows 7: Surely theres's a way to disable the annoying caps lock popup?

Surely theres's a way to disable the annoying caps lock popup?

I have a Samsung Series 9 A01US that I clean installed Windows 7 Home on. Then I installed the required drivers, etc ... and it all works very smoothly, except for one annoying thing:

the keyboard backlight requires a program called "Easy Settings". Normally I don't use bloatware ... and this laptop for being as expensive as it was, has a ton of it. But I wanted the keyboard backlight.

So after chatting to a samsung chat rep, she informed me that there was no way to turn the annoying "Caps lock on!" "caps lock off!" popup that displays every time I press the caps lock key. The only way to disable it is to uninstall the easy setting program, which also controls the keyboard backlight.

This seems nonsensical: the caps lock key has a blue LED light that shows whenever caps lock is on. Why would I need a popup? what's worse is that it isn't even a small, non-intrusive popup. It's a somewhat large, graphical pop up. And the only way to get rid of it is to remove samsung's "easy settings" program, which also controls the keyboard backlight ...

which I think is completely ridiculous. So it's either be stuck with this pointless pop up or lose my keyboard backlight ... I searched on google, but it wasn't really helpful.

This is especially annoying when i'm typing papers; although it only stays on the screen for a second, it's still pretty distracting and annoying.


So, I was wondering if anyone could help me, at least if anyone could tell me how to disable the popup, or at least if I uninstall easy settings, how to get the backlight. I don't think it's fair that I need to choose when I bought this laptop and one of the features comes at an annoying price. It doesn't make sense that they wouldn't give an option to turn the popup off. I've attached a screenshot of it ...

any ideas? thank you very much for your help.

tried the registry trick. Didn't work. What was samsung thinking? did they really think that users wanted to be annoyed by a pop up when they're typing?

How often does someone use cap-locks anyway.

A lot, actually. It's an essential part of typing.

I use it when i'm typing papers for school, so that my essays don't look like facebook posts.

There is a [Shift] key that will work as well.

hm, never used shift for making uppercase letters, how does that work?

Anyway, that wasn't my original problem: my problem is that I want the pop-up to go away when I press the caps lock key, and while i'm still able to retain backlit keyboard functionality.

Just hold "shift" and press the keys that you want to be capitals ... you also have to use shift to get special characters like !"$%^&*() which I'm sure you've used before
