on screen caps lock on

I see lots of threads telling me how to disable the on screen CAPS LOCK ON message, but how and where do I ENABLE it? My Latitude has an led in the keyboard key, but there's always this hand of mine in the way.

Welcome to Seven Forums markrheuer. A couple of possibilities, starting with easiest.

Start> In search box type keyboard> Under Control Panel, click on Keyboard> IF your Keyboard properties has a Key settings tab> Key Settings List> Double click on Caps Lock> Display Caps Lock status on screen> Click the check mark box> Finish

If no key settings tab, you can make your screen flash when you have Caps lock on

Start> In search box type ease of access> Enter> Make the keyboard easier to use> Check the box next to Turn on toggle keys> Apply> OK> Back to Ease of access main page> Use text or visual alternatives for sounds> Turn on visual notifications for sounds (Sound Sentry)> Choose visual warning> Apply> OK

I see where some Dell users have had success changing a registry key. Suggest always backing up your registry 1st

Registry - Backup and Restore

Start> In search box type regedit> Enter> Expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Dell Computer Corporation\QuickSet\QuickSetControl and set it's value to 1

Some freeware programs to do the same job

Free Keyboard LEDs software shows state of Caps Lock, Num Lock, and Scroll locks.
