This is a guide as to how to fix that pesky Caps Lock.

Step 1: Things you will need

1. Small flathead screwdriver
2. Keyboard
3. Half of a brain (a full brain works just as well, sometimes better)
4. Your hand

If you don't have a hand or a keyboard, there is no real need for this instructable. You would not be able to type without either one of those.
<p>This did not help me. When I searched up how to fix capslock I meant like one that broke off the keyboard into 3 pieces. Here is what I mean:</p>
iSEEM TO BE STUCK, THERE IS NO HOLE UNDER MY KEY. sHOULD i TAKE A DRILL AND JUST MAKE A HOLE? <br><br>i'LL JUST MAKE A HOLE. <br><br>
ha, got a kick out of this<br />
C'mon, you have a LED&nbsp;on your keyboard, you can see that you're typing all in CAPS, you can replace the CAPS&nbsp;LED&nbsp;with a big red one, and also, you can actually install a software that tells you that the key is ON, and you need to remove the key? What abou those annoying programs that turn CAPS&nbsp;ON every time they run (some Fox programs)?&nbsp;How you will turn CAPS off then?<br /> This is keyist and very pointless. And shows that you type looking at anything but your screen or keyboard.<br />
I enjoyed this instructable very much! Hah, I like where you're going with this one. Good Job<br />
Only people who don't look at the screen as they type need to remove their Caps Lock key. (Unless you just over-use it like a nub ;P)
ITS SPELLED NOOB
Press the key that's usually just left of the "A" key. OR: Follow this instructable to prevent such an incident occurring in the future. It can be spelt noob, n00b, nub, newbie,.... no one cares.
or newb, noobie
WHY ARE YOU RACIST AGAINST THE CAPS LOCK KEY? IT'S USEFUL IN BUGGING ONLINE PEOPLE THAT HATE CAPS LOCK.

Caps Lockers are a race? Amazing what you learn every day.
Not the lockers, so much as the key itself. It <em>is</em> a black key you know, at least on your keyboard.<br/><br/>It could be argued that you are a racist by segregating that key from his black brethren in order to limit his power. Think about it.<br/>
keys are not a race so no it isn't racist...maybe discriminating but that is a stretch
then its keyist!
my keys are white.......also my keyboard is really flat and the a and th caps are closer than most so i always hit it by accicdent.......also all the letter keys are shorter than normal and the other keys are longer so it's like really weird!!!erghhhh.......
Only on my keyboard. But many people have white keyboards and this would work just as well.
I AGREE, AND IF I FIXED IT MY NAME WOULDN'T MAKE SENCE (NOT THAT I DIDN'T TRY)
Well...You can also type with your feet ;P Anyway this is a good idea, I always hit the Caps lock key unknowingly and it annoys me when I type something reaaallly long, all in caps.
Ever tried typing with your feet? It goes something like this: vfhjvcjdkjdkdjccjkdcjkdjdddddddnd n cdjhndc ncdnhjdn jcjdcjn vjnhcndjdskjds
I can type pretty well with my feet :)
does hard riing a b elllllllll
I tried. I wrote the sentence above with my foot.
Here is my shot at this= I LIKe PiE TEst TEST Test ohuhUHIUHIUhIUYgiuyiuyGITULhiugIYFGIUgUYIGuyfbhUGI<br/>
hbiuju uhjkiosx koizsa snjhoiokt oki cajhnfgt gfhrythgyn aswkijgtnhb myh drgfsdreedseeeferst Its just not fair my toes are too big for the keys
I'M GOING TO BE COMPLETELY ORIGINAL AND TYPE IN ALL CAPS TO COMMENT THIS INSTRUCTABLE BECAUSE I'M SURE NOBODY ELSE HAS HAD THE SAME IDEA.
I DID
step 8 mash caps lock key with a hammer, pour acid over key, set on fire, then finally, try to put it back into the keyboard, if it goes back in, you <a rel="nofollow" href="http://youfail.org/">failed</a> if it is unrecognizable and doesn't fit, congrats.... <br/>
lmao
Is the CAPS KEY SUCH A BIG PROBLEM?
I THINK I DID THIS WRONG
I think that would be more practical to put an additional (and strongest) spring to the CAPS LOCK key , so that one cannot step it inadvertently, but it continue being functional, because it is undeniably necessary.
Hate to say it guys but the caps key is a pain in the tush......On my old keyboard I wedged a toothpick under the outer edge tokeep it in the off position.. I now use a roll out keyboard and have a plastic cup off a blister pack to keep it turned off when I don't want it on. I can still use it but have to knowingly press it in the center to turn it on
You should add in <em>what</em> the problem is for why you are fixing the caps lock button.<br/>
Take a look at Erik Lindemanns comment and you will see
I will make the assumption that the caps lock was stuck in the "on" position. So he had to fix it or everything would be in caps.
Nah - more likely, it's "fix" as in "how to get your dog fixed". :-D
