Caps Lock problems

The Caps Lock key drives me nuts. I often find that I have typed several
lines in caps, where it wasn't intended.
In Win XP, I could fix things easily so that the Shift key did turn off
the Caps Lock:
Shift to Turn Off Caps
How do I go about it in Vista?
TIA
Roger.
Hi Roger,

This is not the same thing, but you may find it helpful. It will show you how to turn on the beep alert for the toggle keys. This way the computer will beep at you when any of the toggle keys are pressed, or the Caps Lock key is bumped by mistake.

There are two keys I never use on purpose and always want turned off.
One is the caps lock key, and the other is the Insert key. I turn both
off with the little program SharpKeys, at

Depending on the driver software for your particular keyboard, the Caps lock
could also be turned off there. I use a cordless Logitech mouse and
keyboard (MX3000) and have the Caps lock turned off via Logitech's software
(accessed via the System Tray).

Having used a regular typewriter for many decades, where the shift key
turns off caps lock, I always did set up Windows to act that same way. I
will have some difficulties adapting to other settings, would like very
much to keep the same setup. However, I suppose that is no longer
possible in Vista.
Thanks, all.
Roger.
