Just for anyone with a Logitech keyboard that uses Setpoint and sees this,

and hasn't notice the settings.

If you have a Microsoft keyboard that uses the Intellitype driver, you can also disable the Caps Lock from there.

A more advanced method:
AutoHotkey - Free Mouse and Keyboard Macro Program with Hotkeys and AutoText
I guess it was! I didn't read through everyone's posts before I posted....just immediately jumped on the solution that had worked for me.
Well I won't use the platitude but good work

Or you could also have some fun with your "caps lock" key

or you could remap your keyboard using the Microsoft utility "remapkey" which is part of the Windows Resource Kit Tools

Only attempt Registry Edits if you know what you are doing. Be sure to backup the registry first.


Open the Registry Editor
Start > Run > regedit

Navigate to: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout]

Select the Keyboard Layout Folder

Edit > New > Binary Value and name it "Scancode Map"

Double Click Scancode Map key and enter
00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,02,00,00,00,2A,00,3A,00,00,00,00,00
As a value.

That will change the Caps Lock key into a Scroll Lock key.

Otherwise, you can download these registry tweaks which should do the trick for you.
