Solutions for CapsLock / NumLock indicator always show on the screen when enabled

How To, W520


Some of my friends using ThinkPads and realize when the numeric lock or caps lock is ON and the indicator would just stay there for a long time. Is there anyway to have the indicators display for a few seconds instead of staying there for a long time?


May apply to most ThinkPad with newer version of On-screen display.


For those who wants to prevent the indicator to always show on the screen when CapLock / NumLock is On or Off, at the Desktop, right-click and go to Screen Resolution, click Advanced Settings, go to the On Screen Display tab, ensure Show the indicator for a few seconds are selected for both While the numeric lock or the caps lock is ON / OFF.
