There are no more useless key on a keyboard than CapsLock. I always map it to Control instead, that’s far more useful. This is a little reminder to myself on how to do it. Because I always forget.
Mac OS X
Open System Preferences, click on Keyboard and select the Keyboard tab. Click on the “Modifier Keys…” button in the lower right corner, and then set Caps Lock to whatever you want. I think you should want Control.
Save the code below as
/usr/local/etc/hal/fdi/policy/x11-input.fdi, and make sure you have
hald(8) running (
hald(8) can be hard to kill completely, so reboot to make sure it works.
I found this tip on the zomg epix!!1 blog.
Paste the code below into a file ending in
.reg and double-click it. Works at least up to Windows 8.1.
