    I have purchased a new wireless Logitech keyboard. There is no lights to indicate if caplock is on. Is there someway to get some indication on the desktop? I am using XP

    Hi William

    We used to have a similar keyboard - if I recall, we used the Logitech SetPoint s/w to get a caps lock notification: Tools > Indicators, I think...

    Install the SetPoint software. They have it for both x32 and x64. When you press the capslock, numlock and so forth keys, it briefly shows you the status on your screen.

    Also, it shows you the status of your battery and the remaining charge left, when you right click on the icon in the system tray and open the properties.

    Set point isn't too hot. I had to hold the curser over the icon to find out what was on. Uninstalled.
