How to activate an audible warning to know that you have capital letters activated
Many keyboards, whatever style they are, do not have LEDs to warn you that capitalization or the numeric keypad lock is on. We are going to tell you an infallible trick to never make a mistake again.
In Windows 10 there are many tricks that very few know and today we will tell you one of them. We are going to tell you how to activate an audible warning to know at all times if you have pressed the shift key or the numeric lock key.
It will be a very simple and quick tutorial as well as useful and practical, since sometimes keyboards do not have LEDs to inform you of the activation of the shift key, or they may have that LED, but it is so small and it lights up so little that it’s like it doesn’t.
From now on you will never confuse the keys again thanks to the audible warning that you will activate if you follow these steps:
- Go into Windows 10 settings or pulse WIN + I.
- Now select Accessibility and then, in the left side menu, locate Keyboard.
- Here you will see a series of options and where you should pay attention is in the section of Use toggle keys.
- Check the box and a beep will automatically sound each time you press the shift key or the Num Lock key.
As soon as you activate that box, you can try pressing the shift key or the numeric lock key. If the beep sounds, it will be activated, otherwise, you would still have to review the process or adjust the volume of the PC.
Is about two different beeps, a lighter and higher one to indicate that you have activated the key and a lower and louder one for when you have deactivated it. The beep cannot be configured, at least not with the official Windows 10 options.
The type of beep may vary from one computer to another, but roughly they will be very similar and should work perfectly with all the keyboards that you install on your PC, whether they are wired or wireless.
