Windows 10 displays a “Caps Lock On” message every time you press the Caps Lock key. The operating system may also make a specific sound when you press the Caps Lock key.
If you don’t want the computer to notify you every time you press the Caps Lock key, you can turn off these notifications and sounds.
Of course, you can also hold down the Shift key and press the corresponding letter key to write the letter. This is a way to bypass the Caps Lock key warnings.
What does the Caps Lock key do for on-screen notifications?
- Caps Lock key notifications may appear on the screen if your keyboard (or Ease of Access) is configured to display a notification when the Caps Lock key is turned on/off.
- The problem is most likely caused by an OEM utility (which may be pre-installed in the system). You can boot the system into Safe Mode and then check to see if the Caps Lock notification is received.
