Disable Capslock popups

When I game, I have caps lock tied to ingame functions. The capslock popup bring me out of game, and is a pain in the but.

Anyway to disable this useless feature?

There is a way, involving the registry

Back up registry
Make a system image on a external hard drive.
(I am very careful when it comes to the regisry)

I did that, about a week ago, changing it to an extra shift key......made my internet much less stressful. I have to look at the keys as I type, so at times I would look up and whole sentences would be reversed from hitting the caps lock with my pinkie by accident. I never needed the caps lock anyways.

Hi Welcome to SF,

This happen due to a process called bttray.exe. You could try this

Start > Regedit

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > WidcommBT > Config > General > KeyIndication

KeyIndication and Change it from 1 to 0

Then reboot the Computer that might fix the problem

Hope this helps,
Captain

what make of keyboard do you use and do you have the software for the keyboard installed too? for example, i have a logitech keyboard / mouse combo and it's software is "logitech set point." within the software there are settings for disabling the volume and caps lock on screen display.

microsoft has its own software for its keyboards and there are settings within to control the same.

I don't seem to have that entry in the registry.

I'm using a laptop, so it's a built-in keyboard.

there's got to be software that runs the keyboard and key mappings... that would be, more than likely, the software you need to modify in order enable / disable the popups.

Found the issue, quickset.exe spawns these popups.

You can close this thread.
