There are several small utilities that do a single job and do it extremely well. I’ve recommended a few of these and will post about more in the future.
Have you ever been typing away and accidently hit the CapsLock key with your left little finger, not noticing until you’ve typed out several paragraphs? Frustrating, right?
Well, reader Jeadly of the very popular blog Lifehacker has written a small app that disables the CapsLock key once you click it, and keeps it disabled until you click the Handicapslock icon again. It doesn’t affect the Shift key, just CapsLock.
All you have to do is download the application. There’s no unzipping to be done, the executable file is all there is. If like me this is something you’ll be using on a regular basis, either drag the handicapslock.exe application to your desktop or right-click on it and pin it to the Start menu.
I’ve been using this app for over a year now and find it indispensable. No longer do I have to worry about what my left little finger is doing over there.
Grab yourself a copy at Lifehacker and enjoy. This application works only in Windows.
