How to change Caps Lock key behavior in OS X?


Unintentional pressing of Caps Lock is the most irritating thing. It is the fact that you mostly press Caps Lock only to turn it off after hitting it mistakably. Thus, here is an idea to change the behavior of Caps Lock key in OS X. 

Caps Lock key


Using Apple’s Keyboard system preferences, Caps Lock key can be disabled. From this preferences pane, select the Keyboard tab, and then click the "Modifier Keys..." button. The drop-down pane appears out of which select your attached keyboard, and then change the Caps Lock key to "No Action". This will disable it. Also, you can switch it to work as a Control option or command key.
Make sure that this feature doesn’t allow the key to be reassigned for other special keys like Delete, Escape or the Fn key. In order to remap the key in this way, you can use a third-party program. For doing so, you have free program called PC KeyboardHack through which you can enter a custom key code for the Caps Lock key. You can find this program for OS X 10.4 through 10.8. 
This is how you can modify the behavior of Caps Lock key in OS X. For more from the XpertCrewTM team, please follow us on Twitter @Techvedic or contact Techvedic’s computer support helpdesk, as per below contact-details:
