Can anyone tell me how to configure XP Pro to have the shift key cancel CAPS
LOCK? On Win2K I can set it using Keyboard on the Control Panel but this
option doesn't appear on XP. I have searched all the help files to no avail.

Thanks, Phil

Depending on your selected keyboard, you may be able to enable this under:

Control Panel -> Regional & Language Options -> 'Languages' tab -> 'Details...' button -> 'Key
Settings' button

If this is grayed out:

Locate the following key in the registry:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Keyboard Layout]

In the right pane, there should be a value (type = REG_DWORD) named 'Attributes', change it's value
from 0x0 to 0x10000.

Thanks for your help Keith. It was greyed out but I found that if I added a
UK Extended keyboard then I could get at the key settings.

I have another question: is there a way to change the CAPS LOCK into a
SHIFT LOCK and keep the US-international keyboard settings? In French
keyboard settings, the CAPS LOCK acts as a SHIFT LOCK, but then of
course all the other keys are mixed up.
Thanks,
Karel

As answer to your question: go to Start -> Settings -> Control Panel
->Regional and language settings -> Languages -> Details -> Settings ->
Key Settings and you will see.

I'm sorry I cannot answer your question Karel, but as this thread is quite
old it might be better to post your question as a new thread.

Good luck, Phil

Control Panel--->Reginal and Language Options--->Languages---->Text Service and input languages---> Details-->Key settings--->To turn off caps lock---> now you should know what you need to do !!!
