    Seems to be all programs. Word, PowerPoint as well as a few other customized programs.

    Thanks. Good idea. Not quite sure what the deal is with this issue...

    Hey Thanks. I like the first link a lot. This will really help to identify if this is a user error or really a glitch.

    The second link is quite the conspiracy! I always knew there was an evil plot to drive me insane!

    Thanks again for your help.

    I don't know what is wrong with your system, but perhaps this will help you to cope.

    Many applications allow you to change the "Case" of selected text by doing something like the following:

    Type the text all in lower case, then highlight the text you want to be upper case, then click "Format" in the top menu bar, then click "Case", then click "Upper Case".

    What application are you using ? Word ?

Caps are on all the time


Press the
"caps lock" key once to take it off capital letters. If that doesn't work, get an external keyboard and plug it in and try it. That should do it.

I can`t get any upper case functions to work on hp 2011 keyboard what key do i press


1.Make sure the "Caps Lock" key is not on. Though this will be obvious to most people, if your keyboard is typing in only upper-case letters it can't hurt to check. Look at the "Caps Lock" indicator light on the top right corner of your HP keyboard. If the light is on, strike the "Caps Lock" key on the left side of your keyboard. This will turn the "Caps Lock" off, allowing you to type in lower case letters again.

2.Make sure the "SHIFT" keys on your HP keyboard are not stuck. Dust and dirt can build up on a keyboard over time, which can cause certain keys to stick. If either of your keyboard's "SHIFT" keys get stuck, your computer will type in only capital letters. Use a toothpick or cotton swab to remove the gunk from the key, which should help it return to its normal position.

3.Unplug your HP keyboard and then plug it back it. This will remove the device from your operating system and then automatically add it back in. This can have the same effect, essentially, as restarting your computer. If your keyboard was typing in capital letters due to an error being stored in your operating system's memory, that error will now be cleared and the HP keyboard will function as normal again.

4.Update your HP keyboard driver. Click "Start" and then right click on "Computer." Click "Properties" and then "Device Manager." Right click on the listing for your keyboard and then click "Update Driver." This will update the computer software that is associated with your HP keyboard. If your keyboard was typing in all capital letters as a result of an error with this driver, the error will now be fixed and you can use your keyboard normally again
