Keyboard state on/off on-screen display (Num Loc, Caps Lock, Scroll lock)


Problem: Everytime you turn Caps lock, scroll lock or num lock on or off it is displayed in the lower right corner of my screen.







Reason: It appears to be result of installing Blue Tooth software from Widcomm. For example, if you get your bluetooth drivers from official Broadcom site. This feature was made
for BT keyboard notifications, but I found that native Logitech indicators are way better!

Fix: You have to change registry setting:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Widcomm\BTConfig\General\KeyIndication

Change it from 1 to 0.

Reboot.


Thanks goes to TCO3 from Notebook forums! Cheers mate!

Finally we (me with my friends) decided to go to Business Bay area instead of the Dubai mall / Downtown area - with an expectation of relatively less crowd and a good view. arlingtontxlock-smith.com

The unique polymorphic shape gives good access to all keys, especially the space bar, in true gaming fashion. Functions keys can be programmed as needed. The AULA Gaming Keyboard is, overall, an excellent keyboard for the price. mechanical keyboard under 50
