    Turn off Caps lock without keyboard? 22nd Jan 08 at 3:14 PM
    Hello,

    Bit of an odd one but I hope someone can help.

    I'm working remotely on a number of laptops. One of the things I need to do is run a script that is designed not to work if the laptop has Caps Lock on. Usually by the time I realise it's on, they've gone elsewhere and can't be tracked down!

    So... can I turn off Caps Lock within windows?

    TIA!
    My TV is broken!

    Only thing I can think of is to run the On Screen Keyboard and click caps lock. Should work. (Start>All Programs>Accessories>Accessibility>On screen keyboard)

    Sure, if you want the quickest and most specific method.

    By the way I'm using Filemaker Pro... is the script compatible with that?
