The LED's for caps lock, num lock, and scroll lock are located on the base/ reciever unit. Logitech did this to make your keyboard batteries last longer.

What is the third light for on the upper right hand side of the keyboard? How do you turn it on and off? What is it used for? I know the first one is the Number Lock, the second is for Caps Lock.


Third light is usually the "scroll lock" indicator.
-Activation Button should be on top row, near far right side, on standard keyboard.
Note: Laptop keyboards vary greatly from the standard layout with 'scroll lock' usually activating using an 'alt' or 'brand' (ex. "Apple") key.

How to tell if caps lock is on


Some keyboards will have a light that goes on when caps lock is turned on

Unlock the Caps on Computers


The All-Caps or "Caps Lock" function causes all letters to appear as capital letters when typing into word processing documents, emails or other files.


This is convenient when needing to type numerous capital letters or All-Caps phrases, as you do not have to hold down the "Shift" button with one finger as you type the words.


When All-Caps is stuck and does not respond to the "Caps Lock" keyboard button, a simple procedure overrides and shuts down the function.


Open a word processing program.


Press the "Caps Lock" button located on the left side of the keyboard to turn Caps Lock off. Type inside the document.


If lower case letters appear in the document, Caps are successfully unlocked.

Proceed if the text is in All-Caps.


Hold down "Shift" on the keyboard. Press the letter "P."

A lower case "p" appears in the document. Release the "Shift" button.


Type the phrase "rint" directly after the lower case "P." The word "pRINT" is now in the document, and the document cursor is after the phrase's "T."


Press "Enter" on the keyboard.

The cursor goes down one line and "pRINT" becomes "Print." The "Caps Lock" function is turned off.


Restart the computer to save the setting.


Enable the Caps Lock Key


The "Caps Lock" key is loved by some and disliked by others.

The key turns all letters into capitals as you type.


While this feature is useful in some situations, a more common occurrence is that the key is accidentally hit and all the text typed is capitalized.


The person typing must then delete the capitalized type and rehit the key to turn off "Caps Lock."

If the "Caps Lock" key needs to be enabled, it indicates that someone has disabled or remapped the key.


If a user wanted to, the "Caps Lock" key can be disabled and enabled through the registry or remapped through the control panels.


Updating the registry for the keyboard will enable the "Caps Lock" key.


Open the Notepad program.


Type the following:


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout]


"Scancode Map"=-


Select "Save As" from the "File" drop down menu.


Navigate to the computer desktop as the save file location and choose "All Files" from the "Save as type:" drop-down menu at the bottom of the Save As window.


Type "enable.reg" without quotes in the "File name:" field and click "Save."


Minimize all open windows to view the desktop.


Double-click on the "enable.reg" file. A box will pop up asking if you are sure you want to run the file. Select "Run" or "Yes" and then click "Yes" for the Registry Editor warning.


Reboot the computer. The registry will be updated and the "Caps Lock" key will be enabled.


Manually Update the Registry


Click the "Start" menu, type "regedit" without the quotes and press "Enter." In older versions of Windows, Click the "Start" menu, select "Run," type "regedit" without the quotes and press "Enter." This will launch the Registry Editor.


Navigate to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout" to view the settings.


Right click on the "Scancode Map" setting and choose "Delete." Click "Yes" to confirm the deletion.


Reboot the computer. The registry will be updated and the "Caps Lock" key will be enabled.







Disable the Caps Lock Key in Windows


Your computer's Caps Lock key has likely only collected dust since you first brought the machine home.

The Caps Lock key is beneficial if you want to type a long string of words entirely in capital letters, but this form of typing is not needed often.


Consider disabling your Caps Lock key if you do not need it, or if you are tired of hitting the key accidentally while rapidly typing.


Restart your computer before beginning the process of disabling your Caps Lock key.


Download the registry file necessary to disable your Caps Lock key.


You have the option to disable your Caps Lock key or change the key to a number of different keystrokes.


For example, you may choose to use the "ChangeCapsToShift" registry file if you want the Caps Lock button to function as a shift key.


Double-click the registry file you have downloaded.


A prompt will appear on your screen asking if you would like to add the registry file to your computer's registry.

Select "Yes" to install the registry file.


Restart your computer, once again, to complete the registry change.

Upon reboot, your Caps Lock key will no longer function as a traditional Caps Lock key.



Disable the Caps Lock Key on a Computer


The Caps Lock is an easy key to hit by accident, and often the user does not realize it immediately.

When this mistake occurs, usually you must correct some text errors and your time is wasted.


If you think the Caps Lock key is more of an aggravation than it is good, follow these steps to disable your Caps Lock key.

Click on "Start" and select "Run". Type "regedit" into the textbox and hit "OK". This command will open the "Registry Editor" window.


Select "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control".

Double click on "Keyboard Layout" to open the folder.


Open the "Edit" menu and choose "New" then "Binary Value".


A new file will appear on the right side of your screen with the file name highlighted.

Type "Scancode Map" for the new file name.


Double click to open and type in "00000000 00000000 0200000000 003A00 00000000" into the Value data box. Hit the "OK" button.


Close the "Registry Editor" by selecting "Exit" from the "File" menu.

Restart your computer for the change to go into effect and enjoy life without the Caps Lock Key.


Hope this helps

How to identify whether the keyboard is in upper or lower case - eg when typing in a password as there is no light or any indication at all (MK250)


On most any keyboard there are 3 lights indicating whether or not your caps lock, num lock, or scroll lock are on. Also my programs have a default notification that lets you know when your typing a password, if the caps lock is on or not!

How do you know if the CAPS LOCK button has been activated: do not see any indicator ?


I have the same keyboard and it does not have a caps lock lamp.
The only way of knowing if the caps lock is on is to type something in a text window although some websites will tell you if your caps lock is on as this can cause errors when entering passwords etc.

Unfortunately, by design this model indicates the status of "caps lock" and "num lock" on the computer screen. I do not see a work-around for your problem. A huge majority of keyboards have a "caps lock" indicator on board. Perhaps you need one of these?

Cap Lock on or off


Your EX 110 receiver has 3 indicator lights (LEDs) that display the status of the Caps lock, Function key, and the Num lock during normal operating mode. These lights will also flash when the connect button on the receiver is pressed.
LED A: Indicates that the Caps Lock (Capital lock) key is on when lit.
LED F: Indicates that the F keys are in Standard F Keys Mode when lit and in Enhanced F Keys Mode when the LED is off.
  • Your EX 110 keyboard has an Enhanced F Keys Mode for F keys that provides additional functions you can program. See Knowledge Base article 9526.
LED 1: Indicates when the Num Lock (Number lock) key is on. This function allows the number pad to produce only numbers
