Windows 8.1: Make the Caps Lock key beep when pressed
Typing letters and numbers in your Windows 8.1-based PCs keyboard is a simple task and depending on your typing speed, you should be able to complete creating your documents in no time. However, it happens many times that if you accidentally press the Caps lock key and don’t realize it soon enough, you may have to retype the entire content all because the typed in content would all reflect like they are screaming at you. Sure this can lead to frustration and re-work. However, by following the easy tweaks provided below, you can easily change the settings and make the Caps lock key beep to notify you that it has been pressed. Won’t that save you time and efforts?
The easy step solution to the above issue is as:
- Move the mouse cursor to the top right corner of the screen and it will display the Charms menu.
- Click on the ‘Settings’ charm, and then click on ‘Change PC Settings’.
- On the left pane, click ‘Ease of Access’ and then click ‘Keyboard’.
- In the ‘Toggle Keys’ section, move the slider to right to turn it on.
- Close the window.
- That’s it. Now when you hit the Caps Lock key by accident or otherwise, it will emit a beep sound to alert you.Â
Wasn’t that simple? In just these six steps you can reduce the frustration. This can also enhance your typing speed if you are entering in pass codes that have mixed letters in both the upper and lower cases. The beep sound will help you keep a track of the number of times you may have typed in a letter in the upper case.
