Hello. I have an Acer 5742 laptop and it is great, for the first time I am entering data into spreadsheets. Is it possible to disable the keyboard Capslock other than by ripping it off.

  1. Press WinKey+R > type notepad and press Enter

    1. Paste to the notepad this:

    [HKEYLOCALMACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout] "Scancode Map"=hex:00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,02,00,00,00,00,00,3a,00,00,00,00,00

    1. File > Save As... Select for Save as type: All Files

Enter in the File name field: disablecapslock.reg

Click Save

  1. Right click on the created file > Merge
  2. Restart your system

In the case that you want to enable CAPS LOCK again, you need to delete that registry entry, so you need follow these steps:

  1. Press WinKey+R > type regedit and press Enter
  2. Navigate to HKEYLOCALMACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout
  3. Right click on the Scancode Map > Delete
  4. Restart your system
