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.

DealBITS Drawing: SmileOnMyMac Productivity Suite

Send Article to a Friend

SmileOnMyMac has made a name for itself over the past few years by offering an increasing number of useful Macintosh applications. They're probably best known for PDFpen, their PDF editing utility, but they also develop DiscLabel for creating and printing CD/DVD labels, PageSender for sending documents as faxes, BrowseBack for providing a visual history of your Web browsing, TextExpander for speeding entry of repetitive bits of text, and PhotoPrinto for designing and printing photo albums and scrapbooks. A number of SmileOnMyMac's products have appeared in DealBITS in the past; now they've brought together all their products in the SmileOnMyMac Productivity Suite. Normally, these applications would cost over $200 if purchased separately, but together they cost only $129.
