NO MORE OF THIS PESKY CAPS LOCK ANGERING EVERYBODY.

When the key is disabled, it will not activate the lock itself instead it will be a regular key. In games that use the CAPS lock it will still function for its' intended purpose. For example in Fallout 3 it is the default toggle for walk/run, that will still work. This method only works for the lock itself.

Step 1: Download Sharpkeys

Step 7: Setting the Registry

double click on the "Scancode Map" binary.

This is the Binary (odd last time I checked there was no such thing as a 2 XD)

0000 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 ........

0008 02 00 00 00 00 00 3A 00 ........

0010 00 00 00 00 ....

the bold face values are going to be changed

Here is the new Binary

0000 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 ........

0008 03 00 00 00 00 00 3A 00 ........

0010 3A 00 4600 00 00 00 00 ........

the 02 is changed to 03

the 00 00 00 00 is not changed, 3A 00 46 00 is added in front of it.

then save it
