SmartCapsLock for Windows

Download SmartCapsLock


DON'T YOU GET ANNOYED WHEN YOU ACCIDENTALLY TYPE EVERYTHING WITH CAPS LOCK ON? Wouldn't it be awesome if you could just select the text and press Caps Lock again to reverse the mistake instead of typing it all over again? SmartCapsLock lets you do just this.

Or do you wonder why that key sits in your keyboard even though it serves no purpose for you? SmartCapsLock finally gives a use to the key and makes it very convenient when you need to quickly transform any text to a different case (UPPER CASE, lower case, Capitalized Case).

SmartCapsLock is compatible with Windows Vista and later. If you're looking for the OS X version, click here.

Thanks to LOTRcrr for the idea.

This program crashes a lot, and the config file never updates when I change the settings.

I've heard about the crash reports a lot. But unfortunately I didn't put much effort to debug it because I can't reproduce the problem on my PCs.

Do you have more information about the crashes, like any error dialog/messages you see?

I eventually was forced to switch to a new computer due to unrelated problems, sorry it took me this long to get back to you. I am going to re-download this application to see if I can reproduce my past difficulties.

I heard from a few other users that it was fixed in the update. So I guess it should work for you now. Let me know if it doesn't.

I have wanted this for so long! THANK YOU FOR MAKING THIS A REALITY! It makes you wonder why Apple and Microsoft haven't implemented this yet.
(The 2nd sentence was intentionally spelt like that.)

:) Glad to know that and you're most welcome!

If this gained popularity, there is a very good chance those two OS makers would include this functionality.

I tried downloading it, but Firefox blocked it.

Use the direct download link. It'll work.

what works for me is remapping CapsLock to LAlt+Win with AutoHotkey, so that I can use it to open Launchy.

I used to disable completely the Caps Lock key, this solution is far more smart ^^


However, I have a question: is there a way to download the app directly? I mean, without the devil thing that the Door2Windows downloader is ><°

If you want to get money for sharing your app (something understandable and logic), you can use links like Adf.ly rather than an installer who contains malwares. Thanks.

Until now, I can't use this tool, that's sad :(

Scroll down in the download page and click "Direct Download (.ZIP)"

The downloader is not an evil one, and it won't install anything without your permission.

Thank you a lot!

It doesn't install if you don't allow, but it makes the adware appear as essential if you want to enjoy your software. Advanced users like me won't fall into this trap. Other users not. And it's this point that I don't like.

You're right. I've been planning on making an FAQ, I'll add it there.

I have no idea how long it is that I wanted something like this. I had seen your other version for Macintosh computers, but I realized you had yet to make one for Windows at the time.

Thank you!
