  • Hi kaleem123,

    For caps lock on screen notification issue, different manufacturers may have different settings. Based on my search, in Acer laptops the program is called LaunchManager Application. We could disable it.

    Or Look for Launch Manager.

    Right click icon then 'Open Containing Folder'.

    (Should be c:\Program Files(x86)\LaunchManager)

    Open subfolder 'OSDRC'.

    Delete the files CapsLock_On.png and CapsLock_Off.png.

    Meanwhile, I find that maybe Acer Windows 10 systems use a program called Acer Quick Access to display a caps lock. Please refer to the link below to follow the steps.

    For the caps lock issue, we could check the registry. Please refer to the link below about how to disable Caps Lock Key in Windows 7, 8, 10.
