"Horrible - 3 tries installing - BUGGY!"

April 28, 2011  |  By dennphill

 |  Version: NumCapsScroll Indicator 7.0

Pros

It works (maybe). (Can't see any menu or way to modify settings - clicks annoyingly every 9 seconds or so...can't turn that off.) When I hit Caps Lock or Num Lock the appropriate little indicator shows it.

Cons

No support! Annoying clicks every 9 seconds or so. Installation - I suspect - didn't work correctly. Tried to uninstall then reinstall X2 - no difference. Uninstall said 'not everything could be uninstalled' - how do I get rid of this program?

Summary

Download at your own peril. Stupid Logitech's support for the MK320 KB - no Num Lock/Caps Lock indicator - told me to d/l and install this from CNET. Horrible mistake to do it. Win 7 64-bit Home Prem. Ed. There is no support from the developer (in Greece?)...though there is a suggestion on the site if the "sound control" presents problems, go to another site and d/l a soundless version...site is a pay-for-download operation. Bottom Line: I just lost 2-3 hours of my life.

"Works like a charm"

March 26, 2011  |  By diriendeau

 |  Version: NumCapsScroll Indicator 7.0

Pros

Does exactly what I want: displays status of caps lock, num lock, scroll lock.
Able to hide the pop-up.

Cons

The defaults should be adjusted to disable "On Top", since the display is annoying.
Not sure what the load/unload on startup does.

Summary

This freeware does exactly what I want. I was able to add to the startup in Windows 7 by putting the shortcut in: C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

"wonderful if I could get it to start up with my netbook"

March 20, 2011  |  By wisteria53

 |  Version: NumCapsScroll Indicator 7.0

Pros

small, unobtrusive, does what I need

Cons

can't get it to start up with Windows 7

Summary

My netbook doesn't have a caps lock/num lock indicator and this was a great addition when I was running Windows XP. Since moving to Windows 7 it won't run at start up any more even though the shortcut is in my startup folder, I have told Windows 7 to let it run as an administrator and its internal controls are set to load at start up. I just have to remember to double click on it every time I boot up....

"Works like a charm"

December 30, 2010  |  By wla2000

 |  Version: NumCapsScroll Indicator 7.0

Pros

Inobtrusive, yet very informative. Fills a gap created by all these wireless keyboards without LED indicators

Cons

Defaults to showing the indicator status "OnTop", which gets in the way of screen real estate. Would be better if the default was not OnTop.

Summary

This program fills a needed role for computers that have replaced their keyboards with wireless keyboards, which results in your not knowing the status of the toggle keys.

It works great. I spent a few moments figuring out how to disable the "OnTop" display of the status - right click on the notification area ("system tray") icon and then deselect OnTop and also click on Minimize. What results is just a notification icon with three vertical bars indicating NumLock, CapsLock, and ScrollLock. I also clicked on Customize (in Windows 7) in the hidden icons area to change this program so that its icon does not remain hidden. Therefore it is always visible as an informative icon in the bottom of my screen.

Another review indicated that the OnTop behavior could not be disabled - but I believe that may have been a misunderstanding, because it surely can.

"It won't close in the taskbar"

August 19, 2010  |  By ervinTE8

 |  Version: NumCapsScroll Indicator 7.0

Pros

Does what it says

Cons

You can't make it go away. It just hovers above the system tray.

"Little program replaces lights on keyboard"

February 08, 2010  |  By Georgia in MS

 |  Version: NumCapsScroll Indicator 7.0

Pros

Small program.

Cons

none that I can think of.

Summary

Most keyboards now do not have lights on them to indicate when you have numlock or capslock on. This is a small program. Small lines that represent Numlock/Capslock/Scroll in the task bar by the clock.
