I haven't done much in the post-worthy category the past two days.
So I thought I would post this computer tip that I found in hopes that one or two of you will also find it useful.
Have you ever been typing along in Word and looked up and found you had been typing in all caps? Very irritating, isn't it?
What you did was hit the Caps Lock key when you really wanted to hit the Shift key to capitalize the first letter. It happens to me all the time.
Now when it happens I hear a sound to alert me to the fact that I hit the All Caps key by mistake.
You, too, can turn on an alarm sound that alerts you whenever you press Caps Lock, Num Lock, or Scroll Lock.
If you are using Windows XP, here's how:
1. Click Start, then Control Panel.
Make sure you are in the Classic View. It should look like this:
If you are in Category View, your screen will look like this:
You need to change it by clicking where it says "Switch to Classic View".
Once you are in classic view:
2. Double-click the Accessibility Options icon.
3. Click the Keyboard tab and then click to put a
check mark in the Use ToggleKeys box.
(I also have the bottom one checked, but you don't need that.)
4. Click OK.
Now hit the Caps Lock key and you should hear a beep.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
