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.

 
 

German Translators Needed!

Send Article to a Friend

German Translators Needed! Our German translation team has dwindled in size and available time, so much so that they haven't been able to translate TidBITS for a while now. (Our Japanese, Dutch, and French translations are still going strong; Spanish and Russian are in need of new translation teams.) If you can spend a little time each week helping to translate TidBITS into German, or helping put together and distribute the finished product (for those who are fluent German editors but aren't as comfortable with translation), the German-speaking Macintosh community will thank you. For more information, please contact Heinz Gnehm <gnehm@infotrax.ch>. Thanks for helping out! [ACE]
