If, like me, you are not an expert touch-typist, you will no doubt have suffered from the dreaded 'Caps Lock' syndrome, where you reach the end of a long sentence only to find that you had clipped the 'Caps Lock' button inadvertently half way through and caused the Upper and Lower Case to reverse!!

Fortunately, there is an easy way to generate an audible warning if this happens, so that you can cancel the Caps Lock before you go any further.

For Windows XP users Go to Start -- Settings -- Control Panel -- Accessibility Options -- Keyboard Tab Go to the bottom panel marked 'Toggle Keys' and click the 'Use Toggle Keys' check box. Click 'OK'.

The PC will now sound a beep tone whenever you touch the Caps Lock Key (or Num Lock or Scroll Lock Keys) and a different tone when you cancel them.

In Vista. Windows 7/8/10 this can be done by holding down the Num Lock key for 5 secs.

When using Microsoft 'Word', if you have some text with the Upper and lower case reversed, you can switch it back, without re-typing, by the following method:-
Highlight the text to be changed and then, On the 'Menu Bar' at the top of the screen, select 'Format' -- 'Change Case' -- Click the button 'tOGGLE cASE'and then OK. All Upper case will be changed to lower and vice versa.

Also, you can set the software to automatically detect and correct the accidental use of the Caps Lock Key.

Click 'Tools' -- 'Auto Correct' -- then on the Auto Correct tab click on the the check box to 'Correct accidental usage of cAPS LOCK key'.
