Exclamation Caps/Num Lock M.I.A.

Hi all

A while ago my caps lock and number lock icons disappeared from the taskbar.

Im wondering if there is a way to get them back. Its surprisingly annoying not knowing if caps/num lock is on or off.

Thanks guys

Iggy

You should be able to tell by the lights on the right of your keyboard.

Talking No Lights

Hi Pancake

If I had lights on the side of my keyboard Im sure Id be able to tell if caps /num lock were on but there isnt any lights. Must be a new feature on these modern keyboards.

Thanx anyway

try a different keyboard, maybe the one you have is going bad and sending the wrong signal.

You can also try restoring your computer to a previous restore point to when the icons were working.

If neither helps, please give the brand and model of your keyboard.
