My Dear No. 2 Son Yakso:

………...For cripe sake my new kb also has the Caps Lock light over on the opposite side as its key !!!! Incredible !!!!

What this msg is about however, is possibly the dumbest software glitch (?) in history: Automatic spelling corredtiion. Yes, Yakso. I think it's a fine thing to have for the absolutely spelling disabled, but there ought to be an easier way to turn it off. No, Kakd, I'm serious now. Do you happen to know how it's done???

There are many things you wrote which made no sense.

What?

...automatic spelling corredition...


I take it that was supposed to be 'correction'. Either that or you invented a new word of corredition which needs a definition and shows your spell check has failed.




happy new year!

All the keyboards I have ever had have the Caps Lock key on the left, and its indicator light on the right (in a row between Num Lock and Scroll Lock).

Weird. This is a keyboard for a desktop PC? My keyboard layout is like this. I really thought it was standard. I'd be lost if they moved the lights or the key.

@centrox,
It's a desktop I bought a few weeks ago. The caps lock key is in the same place, and the light is on the same key.

You said it was "top right". On my keyboard, the Caps Lock key is half way down on the left (as in the diagram) and the light is right over the other side on the right at the top. Maybe this is a new thing I'll have to get used to? My current keyboard is only 18 months old.

Top right on the key itself.

Ah! Lightbulb moment! Now that could be quite handy, except that one of the first things I do when I get a new machine is DISABLE CAPS LOCK.
