Displaying the CAPS LOCK and NUM LOCK indicators on the Lenovo AIO 510 Ideacentre

2017-04-19, 19:46 PM

My recent purchase of the above All-in-One PC (running on Windows 10) included the Lenovo SK-8861 keyboard which has no lights for the CAPS LOCK and NUM LOCK keys.

 

How do I get them to be displayed on the screen when pressed?

 

When I went into Display Settings in Control Panel, I could not find the option to set them on or off.  so, based on the instructions on https://support.lenovo.com/gb/en/solutions/ht002122, I installed the Hotkey driver from http://support.lenovo.com/gb/en/downloads/ds031814. 

 

When I now go into Advanced Settings under Display Settings and click on Screen Configurations, I can see the Enable on-screen display checkbox and the Appearance settiings but the expected Indicator Settings for NUM LOCK and CAPS LOCK aren't being displayed as expected.

 

Can anybody advise what I need to do to enable these settings?

 

Lenovo On-Screen-Display is listed under the Installed Programs in Control Panel.

 

Many thanks.

I do not have an answer for how to enable them via the control plane, but I can point you to a free tool called Keyboard LEDs that I have used in the past that when installed will put an indicator in the system tray, and will sound a tone  and display on screen if so configured in its settings..

 

Cheers,

Hotkey driver is not for your machine. You will see this (you already have).

Try JD's utility

-or-

Lenovo utility

http://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/DS103643

Ignore machines supported list.  It should work with any USB keyboard, including your wireless keyboard.

 

No control over fade in/out time.  No show it always on, always off.

No easy option to disable it. Either uninstall it -or-

Task manager>startup tab> find Lenovo Utility>right click>disable.

Uninstall Hotkey driver.
