    How to set a computer to beep when Caps Lock or Num Lock key is pressed

    Illustrated step-by-step instructions on how to make Windows play an alert each time you press the Caps Lock, Num Lock, or Scroll Lock keys. These alerts can help prevent the frustration of inadvertently pressing a key and not realizing it.

    That's a handy tip. I've been a fan of Handicapslock since I discovered it. If set to run at start up ESET complains about it (only thing that does) but it means you have to tap the Caps Lock key twice to get it to do as it should. http://lifehacker.com/373177/neuter-...-handicapslock

    Corrine,
    I tried the above link and all of sudden I couldn't type in anything anywhere!
    Followed the directions to a "T" You must have known I would fall for one of your tips and tricks so paybacks are in order. heehhe
    So I did a restore and got it back where I can now type anything and anywhere.

    Dennis, the tip is for Windows Vista/Windows 7, not Windows 95.
