All you need is : a software named AutoHotKey
Now that you have the software installed, lets get to creating a small macro! Create a file with extension ".ahk". You can name it anything you want it to be.
Open it with a text editor, and copy the following code:
Code: Select all
if (A_PriorHotkey <> “~CapsLock” or A_TimeSincePriorHotkey > 500)
Now all you need to do is to save this file and double click it to execute it and then you can use the Caps Lock button to Cut, Copy and Paste for you instead of turning the case of letters. Pressing shift and caps lock will act as cut, tapping caps lock once will act as copy and double tap will act as paste.
The problem with this snippet though is that you need to execute it every time you start windows, which is a problem. So let's put it into startup of the computer to avoid this hassle too! Here's how:
Navigate to: "C:\Users\[UserName]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup" and paste the file you just created here.
Note: You can still toggle caps lock on and off if you really need to, by using the key combination of Windows + Caps Lock.
You can similarly do various fun stuff with other non useful keys of the keyboard and play with it. Do let us know your experience in comments!
