    Ok, Hope i got this in the correct thread section, Anyways getting to the point, I have a Dell Inspiron N7010 , And i would like NOT have to wait for the caps lock change. when i type and want to go to larger or Lower case letter i click caps lock and it showes on the lower right hand corner ,showing a lock that it is locked or unlocked right away. BUT it takes like 5 seconds for it to engage to type again. Is there anyway to shut that process off or speed up the on and off engagement. So when i type i'm not waiting for caps too change. O when i hook up a external key board i don't have that problem. :(:confused: Thanks Tech Guys :cool:

    What about your keyboard software, if any?

    On my computer, I've completely disabled that annoying key always hit by mistake. Do you really need it? Holding the Shift key does the same job. How often do we need to write a whole text in capital letters?

    In the link, simple registry tweaks (.reg files) are provided for download if needed.
