And on those extremely rare occasions where I actually want a run of Upper Case letters I seldom think to use Caps Lock, preferring to keep my finger on the Shift key instead. But we all hate those people who JUST LOVE TO USE THE CAPS LOCK ALL THE TIME DO WE NOT? I don't and hate to be accused of being one, Well my next tip is about disabling the caps lock key altogether In the depths of System Preferences lies a easily but overlooked option; to change what happens when you press a modifier key. Open System Preferences. Go to the "Keyboard and Mouse" Preference Pane. Make sure you’re on the "Keyboard" tab. Click the "Modifier Keys" button. A window will appear where you can change what happens when you press the various modifier keys. From the drop-down menu beside the Caps Lock key choose "No Action". Click OK. And the new setting is saved. If you wish, close the System Preferences window. Now when you type the "Caps Lock" key nothing happens. It’s dead as a door nail. And that going to do it for this episode of Mac Tip Podcast I hope you enjoyed it The music for this podcast, preformed by Professor Kliq ( and our announcer was Josh Philpott If you have any comments, questions or tips?
