That's helpful, but it doesn't solve my issue.

I am used to using the caps lock key for typing; it's been that way since 1995 when i've started using computers. I don't want a work around to my issue ... I want to fix my issue. The keyboard layout is stored in my muscle memory; I don't want to use shift for caps lock.

Which is, how to disable the pop-up that displays on my screen when I press the caps lock key as shown in the image above.

It DOES solve your issue. You use the shift key and leave the Caps lock key alone. You don't want a work around to your issue you say.........FIX the issue the correct way and start using the shift key like you are suppose to.

Perhaps you aren't understanding me correctly.

I am well aware that you can use the shift key instead of the caps lock key, but as i've already pointed out .... i'd rather not. I want to use the caps lock key.

My issue was that I want the pop up to stop displaying when I press the caps lock key. My issue is that I need the software, "Samsung Easy Settings" to display the backlight. The dilemma is that the samsung easy setting program also controls the backlight, so if I uninstall the program, I get no backlight.

So far, no one can help me do that, and the fixes provided do not help.

Telling me to use different keys doesn't solve the problem; the pop up is still there. It will be there regardless of what keys I use, unless I uninstall the program. I'd rather not do that if there is another way I can use caps-lock key WITH the samsung easy settings software so that I can retain the backlit keyboard functionality that the program provides without getting a pop-up that shows what the status of my caps lock key is; I can tell if it's on or off due to the LED light.

That was my initial reason for posting here. If I wanted to know what other keys I could use instead of caps-lock, that information is available anywhere. However, since I could not find any way to resolve my specific issue, I decided to post here for advice.

So I am asking again: does anyone here have experience with Samsung series 9 laptops? or samsung software that comes with them? does anyone actually know what i'm talking about or has had the same issue?

When you go to the auto repair shop and complain that your headlights aren't working, they don't tell you to strap on new headlights on top of the broken ones. They work on actually fixing the problem, right? I don't see how your replies are helpful; they don't tell me how to prevent the pop up shown above from displaying. And that's what I wanted to do.

Can anyone give me a more helpful hack/fix that will actually solve my problem? thanks so much.

Your auto repair reference isn't close to what I'm telling you. If you use the shift key like you are SUPPOSE to, you will almost never have to use the Caps lock key. I looked around and nobody has found a way to turn it off without removing the software for it. You've already contacted the manufacturer and they said it isn't possible as well. My idea isn't so crazy now is it?

It is. Because instead of giving me suggestions on how to solve my particular issue, you're just telling me to use different keys. Sure I can use the shift key, but I am more comfortable using the caps lock key; I don't see why this is a problem.

I can also map any function to a key and make it function the way I want it to; if I wanted to do that, I would have done that already myself.

You could have simply told me there was no fix for it instead, that would have been a lot more helpful. I suppose i'm just left to uninstalling the software for it. Thanks so much for your help.

I honestly would keep the software if it controls your backlighting. I'm just suggesting you try the shift key to keep the functionality of what that software controls.

thats what i would do, who needs a backlit keyboard anyway.
and as for pressing the shift key now and then when you want a capital letter when you can press the caps lock key and keep pressing it on and off each time you type a word that needs one well thats just crazy.
give me a caps lock on always , then i can press the shift key to get small case letter.
but i'll need the light on when i do.

The shift key is directly under the caps lock key, and you only have to press it once to capitalize a letter. The problem is you using the Caps lock key in the first place. That is NOT what 99.9% of people use. Like I said before, keep your software and learn to type correctly.

First Samsung has nothing to do with the way the cap lock or shift key work. That is the way Windows 7 works on both of my Windows 7 computers without Samsung.
I think what likearadiowave is looking for is some kind of registry trick to stop the pop up with out using the shift key. Retraining your little pinkie and all.
I know of know tricks. I'm in the process of retraining my little pinkie because I didn't even know the shift key did that. I always use the Cap Lock Key with picture and sound. That is how dumb I am.

I got a chuckle when I read OP talked to the manufacturer rep and was told no work around and yet carries on and on and on about it anyway, live without the lighting, tada, done. Adapt or get another keyboard, they wear out anyway.


I have a logitech keyboard, I accidentally pressed Caps Lock often, so I used the app to disable it and same for Windows key, can re-enable in 4 clicks.
