You may have noticed that Windows is not what you would call generous when it comes to offering its users any visual feedback regarding the status of both Caps Lock or Num Lock functions. Therefore you have to rely on your computer's keyboard, considering it comes equipped with those small status lights.

If you are tired of accidentally typing passwords with capitalized letters instead of lowercase and vice-versa or you simply want an on-screen indicator for the status of both Caps Lock and Num Lock, then Caps Lock Commander might just be what you are looking for.

Subsequent to its installation, the app makes its presence known with the addition of two small icons on your computer's taskbar. The two icons are themselves quite useful indicators for displaying the lock key status by changing their colors each time one function is activated or deactivated.

If this minimalist approach does not satisfy your needs and you want something more, you should know that you can turn on the app's on-screen indicators. The best thing about the on-screen indicators is the fact that they are very customizable.

For example, you can individually change their transparency levels, location, text and background color, as well as the font. In addition, you can choose the time-out length using second units. Another worth mentioning feature is the fact that Caps Lock Commander can also aid visually-impaired users with the help of beep tones.

Taking all of the above into consideration, Caps Lock Commander is a useful and lightweight utility that aims to make your experience with Windows a little bit better. Granted, it may be hard to get excited for such a minimalist app, as it may not be much in the eyes of many, but sometimes and for some, the little details make a very big difference.
