What is the Caps Lock key?
Caps Lock is located above Shift and adjacent to “A” on the keyboard. Caps Lock activates an alternate input mode on your keyboard that lets you type a second set of characters instead of the original. This set produces uppercase letters instead of lowercase letters, creating special characters instead of numbers.
The Origins of Caps Lock
Caps Locks originated with mechanical typewriters, where they replaced one set of keys with another. The Caps Lock key was held down while the alternative set was pushed up and locked into place. Caps Lock had to be turned off mechanically by pressing the Caps Lock key again.
How To Tell Whether Caps Lock Is On?
To turn off Caps Lock, press the key again after pressing it. A built-in status indicator on keyboards often indicates the Caps Lock key. If the keyboard has a status bar, the LED is on the status bar or the key.
There is another way to determine if the Caps Lock key is on if your keyboard lacks these indicators. To begin, open a word processor and press any key. Check whether the program generates lowercase or uppercase letters from the alternative key values.
How To Turn Off Caps Lock On Logitech Keyboard?
Turning off the caps lock on a Logitech keyboard is a simple process.
- First, locate the caps lock key on your keyboard, which is usually found near the left side of the keyboard.
- Pressing this key will activate or deactivate the caps lock. If the caps lock indicator light is on, it means that the caps lock is currently active.
- To turn it off, press the caps lock key again.

Another way of turning off the caps lock is:
- Go to Logitech gaming software.
- Select the Game Mode Settings icon.

How Do You Examine The Caps Lock Remain Off In Logitech Keyboard?
To examine if the caps lock remains off in a Logitech keyboard, ensure that the Num Lock and Scroll Lock keys are also turned off. Then, open up any text editor or word processor and start typing.
If the letters appear in lowercase, then the caps lock remains off. However, the caps lock may be on if the letters appear in uppercase. You can also look for a small LED light on your keyboard that indicates whether or not the caps lock is on. If this light is not illuminated, the caps lock should be off.
Differences Between Caps Lock And Shift Lock
It is common to use Caps Lock and Shift Lock interchangeably, although they are not synonyms: Only letters are capitalized when Caps Lock is on. There is no change to the other keys. When the Shift Lock key is pressed, upper-case letters are generated instead of lowercase letters, and special characters are generated instead of numbers. Keyboard settings vary from system to system and from user to user.
The keyboard may not work properly because your keyboard driver needs to be updated. The caps lock can also be stuck by a malfunctioning Caps key.
Go to Settings > Language > Keyboard to fix this. Go to “Advanced Key Settings” in the keyboard settings and ensure Caps Lock is turned off by pressing the CAPS LOCK key instead of the SHIFT key.
