Kill The Caps Lock!

Here's a little tidbit that has made my life a little bit easier: kill the Caps Lock on your Mac.

I don't think I've ever used the Caps Lock key - all it's ever done for me is cause pain and grief and wrong passwords or inadvertent 'shouting' in e-mails. It's a fossil from days gone by.

Go into System Preferences, select the 'Keyboard and Mouse' or 'Keyboard' panel, click 'Modified keys...'
and set the Caps Lock key to 'No Action'.

Takes all of 10 seconds!

I don't know about you, but I love it.
