T510: Which Lenovo app puts caps lock symbol on screen?

2011-03-21, 21:18 PM

The caps lock symbol that appears on the sceen when you turn on/off the caps lock key is cute, but it has a tendancy to hang around all the time, even when the caps lock is turned off.  Is there a way of turning this feature off?

There's an option for that.

Right click the desktop > Screen Resolution > Advanced Settings > On-Screen Display tab.

I think the default may have been changed somewhere along the way, so a hotkey package update might also do the trick.

Thank you for that. I have turned it off. The timer for fade out was being upset by some other application. If I was really careful not do anything for three seconds after turning the caps lock key off, it would fade out - most of the time - but not always.
