When we press the Caps Lock key, the system displays a pop-up message saying that the Caps Lock key is on and makes a sound. Sometimes it can be annoying to see this sound and display every time we press the Caps Lock key. This article describes different ways to disable the audible and visual notification when the Caps Lock key is pressed.

What does the Caps Lock notification mean on my screen?

The Caps Lock notification can show up if your keyboard (or Ease of Access) is configured to show a notification when you turn on/off the Caps Lock key. In this case, disabling the Caps Lock notification on the keyboard (or in the Ease of Access settings) may solve the problem. However, these settings may not be available to all users, as there are different OEMs.

Most likely, the problem is caused by an OEM utility (which may be pre-installed with the system). You can boot the system into safe mode and then check to see if the Caps Lock notification is received.

The keyboard lock notification is not a Windows feature, it is part of a driver package or utility. You can find the utility causing the problem by booting the PC properly. If you don’t need the app/utility, you can uninstall it to fix the problem.
