Where did the Caps Lock icon go? Vanished after upgrade to Windows 10

2020-03-08, 21:38 PM

Hi,

a Caps Lock icon used to appear on the bottom right corner of the monitor of my W530 workstation when I hit the Caps Lock key.

Now, after upgrading to Windows 10 Pro, the icon does not show anymore.

So I don't know if the Caps Lock is on until I hit a key.

is there a way to bring the icon back?

I have used a free utility called Keyboard LEDs for many years.     It uses barely 0.2MB or RAM and is highly customizable, including playing an alert tone when the caps lock, num lock or scroll lock is enabled/disabled.

Hello,


If you install the Lenovo Vantage app from the Windows Store it should detect and install any missing drivers and software on the computer.


Alternatively, you can try downloading and installing the Hotkey Features Integration software from https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds031814 for Windows 10.

Thank you Aryeh,

unfortunately your advice did not help.

 

1) I installed Lenovo Vantage and run the update routine. It suggested to install a security software (which I installed), but it had nothing to do with my CapsLock Key icon issue.

 

ALSO: each time I run Vantage a warning pops up:Lenovo.Modern.ImController.PluginHost ceased working > Close program (I am translating from Italian). What is that??

 

2) I installed the Hotkey Features Integration but it did not help (so I uninstalled it).

 

Is there anything else I can do to have the CapsLock Key icon back? Or my Lenovo W530 simply does not work well with Windows 10?

Btw, its overall speed and performance got worse after the OS upgrade.
