Disable Caps Lock

If you find yourself pressing the Caps Lock key accidentally as much as I do, note that you can disable it entirely in Mac OS X. Open the Keyboard & Mouse preference pane, click the Modifier Keys button, and in the dialog that appears, select No Action from the Caps Lock pop-up menu. You could remap it to another modifier instead, but that might make using differently configured Macs more difficult.

Send Article to a Friend

For a variety of reasons, I'll be more or less away from email for the next five weeks. I'll be using Mikael Hansen's free AutoShare to provide automated vacation mail replies, and although I will read everything I receive during this time, I may not be able to reply. Please send TidBITS-related mail to <editors@tidbits.com> where Geoff Duncan and Jeff Carlson can handle it. Thanks! [ACE]
