Whenever I have worked on a laptop, I usually type worse than I do on a desktop computer. The reason for this is that the keys on most laptop keyboards are crammed in tight, so your fingertips are very close to another key at all times. The most annoying key on the laptop keyboards for me is the Caps Lock key. When I attempt to hit the “a” key I hit the Caps Lock and then they following letters become capital letters. This can get really slow you down when it comes to writing long papers, so I found a nice and easy work-around.

  1. Open up System Preferences.
  2. Click on the Keyboard & Mouse preference pane.
  3. Make sure you’re in the Keyboard section.
  4. Click on the “Modifier Keys” button.
  5. A drop-down menu should appear with the modifier keys: Caps Lock, Control, Option, and Command.
  6. Click on the drop-down menu located beside Caps Lock and choose “No Action”.
