Editors' Review

This free utility has one primary focus, to let you change the Caps Lock key functionality, but as simple a task as it sounds, it did not work for us.

When installed, Caps Lock Changer adds a shortcut to your taskbar and to your desktop, although the desktop shortcut failed to conjure up the program when we clicked on it. When we double-clicked on the taskbar icon, a small, slender window appeared. The interface basically consists of a drop-down menu that contains a long list of Caps Lock button alternatives, such as your Enter button, Backspace, and Delete. We first selected the Backspace option, but after clicking the Apply button, nothing changed. Subsequent tests using other button alternatives revealed the same results.

Caps Lock Changer had to be manually uninstalled from our PC, but even then, it left an empty file in our program files. Luckily, we were able to delete it. Thanks to its poor performance, we can't give it our seal of approval.

    "It does work."

    December 16, 2012   |   By BearPuppy

    Version: Caps Lock Changer 1

    Pros

    I use it to turn off the CAPS lock key, and for that it works just fine. It has to be started manually, but other than that, its a keeper. It definitely beats having to rETYPE words that get partial caps or when none are intended.

    Cons

    It has to be started manually, as opposed to being started with Windows. But that's it. Its perfect for disabling the CAPS Lock function.

    "Don't bother."

    Version: Caps Lock Changer 1

    Pros

    It was free.

    Cons

    It was confusing and worked only intermittently.

    Summary

    I'd rather just pry the damn key off the keyboard than to deal with this clunky app!

    "Great!"

    Version: Caps Lock Changer 1

    Pros

    Where has this great piece of software been all my life? Another person was truly happy to get this. He actually ripped the Caps Lock key right out of all his keyboards.

    Cons

    A little late in coming, but thats okay!
