Lenovo On Screen Display Caps Lock etc... Visible on external monitor?



I was wondering if anyone knows if it's possible to view the On Screen Display notifications such as whether CAPS LOCK is on or off on an external monitor?


The external monitor is not a clone, it's an extended screen. I'd like the Caps Lock on or off notification on the external screen. I spend my time looking at the large external screen and continually having to guess if the Caps Lock is on or off!?


Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks.

Re: Lenovo On Screen Display Caps Lock etc... Visible on external monitor?

I use a small free utility (author accepts donations) called keyboard LED's (512 KB), which is a utility that displays the status of the capslock, numlock and scroll lock in the lower right of the system tray.   


It uses very low resources (.2 MB) and is highly configurable, with options to play a tone when  the locks are activated, and has option whether or not to display a message on screen vs. just in the tray etc.    I turn off the Online Features, but overall it works really well.
