T470 20HE model Windows 10 64-bit
Fn key actions are displayed with on-screen icons/symbols (Volume/Mute, Mic, Display brightness), however when I select Caps lock or Num lock, there is no on-screen display.
I re-installed the latest Lenovo Power Management Driver and Hotkey Features Integration for Windows 10 but no success.
When I open the Display Settings >> Display adapter properties >> Screen configurations, the section "Indicator settings for Numlock and Capslock" is missing.
Here are the Lenovo instructions: https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/HT002122
See attached file for comparison of the Screen configurations settings and my actual settings.
Interestingly, in the Lenovo Hotkey Features Integration for Windows 10 (64-bit) - Laptop 9.0.07 (current version) Readme.txt, (https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles/n1wvu28e.txt ) there is a reference to a fix in the 188.8.131.52 as follows:
<184.108.40.206> - (FIX) Fixed CapsLock and NumLock OSD issue that the screen configuration setting function in display adaptor properties control panel may not work.
Please advise if there is another fix to show the Capslock and Numlock on the display.
Solved! Go to Solution.

On that thread, I found the following post:
If there is CapsLock LED on keyboard, then hotkeys won't show any onscreen indicator. This is a new design point starting with 70-series ThinkPad such as T470, X270, etc. The designers felt that onscreen indicator is duplicate to the keyboard LED indicator, so they removed the onscreen indicator.
So yes, when I am using the keyboard on the laptop, I can see the CapsLock LED light on the key, but the problem is that I don't have an indicator when using an external keyboard and monitor, when the laptop is docked or closed.
Guess I will have to live without the OSD CapsLock indicator.
