In the past, computers displayed physical indicators for caps lock, numeric lock and other keyboards, so we knew their status. TrayStatus is a free utility that returns indicators to the notification area or taskbar under Windows 10/8/7 by displaying the status of the Caps Lock, Num Lock and Scroll Lock buttons, and whether or not they are enabled.
(TrayStatus keyboard display
TrayStatus is very convenient because it displays indicators for frequently used keyboard keys and hard disk activity. The displays take the form of system tray icons, each indicator being represented by its own system tray icon.
You can change the system tray display to :
- Digital Lock Status
- Scroll Lock Status
- Alt Key Status
- Ctrl Key Status
- Shift keys
- Shift keys status
- Hard disk activity
The program can be used completely from the taskbar and is therefore easy to use. The displays are clearly arranged and differ according to the On and Off states. For example, if the digital lock is disabled, then the symbol is a simple’1′ and if the digital lock is enabled,’1′ is written in a green square, which means that the digital lock has been enabled.
The hard disk icon is slightly different and can display more than two states. If you move the mouse over the hard disk icon, you will see the read and write speed in a toolbox.
To enable or disable an indicator, go to TrayStatus Settings and check the items for which you want to use the indicators. You can even adjust the read and write thresholds for disk activity using the same tray status settings.
TrayStatus is good for those who lock caps and often suck buttons and want a way visible on the screen to know if they are on or not. If your keyboard doesn’t have these features or if your laptop doesn’t have a built-in hard drive screen, then this tool is something else that will interest you.
