Caps Lock issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone,

    I am running win7 pro SP1. I connect to a win7 remote desktop server via RDP successfully. All works fine with all my computers but one that has a caps lock issue : I can turn keys to uppercase pressing caps lock but I can not turn them back to lowercase. Actually, this issue seems to be related to a local specific profile since I face no problem when I open a session with another local profile. I checked much of the HKCU keys related to keyboard, keyboard layout, input method and so on but I found no solution to that problem. I might have missed something for sure. Does someone have an idea on how to fix that issue ?

    Thank you for your help.

    Eric.

  • For the record, I fixed this issue. Actually, the caps lock behavior on the local and remote computers were different : 

      local : caps lock goes to uppercase, shift goes back to lowercase

      remote : caps lock toggle from uppercase to lowercase.

    Modifying the local behavior to the remote one fixed the situation.

    Case closed.
