TIP: How to disable Caps Lock on a Windows computer...

Okay, another random helpful tip...

Tired of the embarrasment of typing in chat and YOU END UP SHOUTING AT PEOPLE IN ALL CAPS? But you don't want to pry the Caps Lock key out of your keyboard because that's just begging for a spilled diet Coke to leak in and ruin your computer? (Yep. Happened to me last year before an Outsiders show. Took out my laptop's trackpad.)

If you're feeling bold and adventurous, you could always edit the Windows Registry.

There are also downloadable Registry Hacks that can make the change for you.

And then there's the KeyTweak program that can disable the Caps Lock and Insert keys for you.

Keep in mind that you can do a lot of damage if you use any of these incorrectly. Follow the instructions, and don't go spilling any diet Cokes while you're doing this stuff, okay?
