It would be handy if there were a small program which resided in the sys tray and would show whether the caps lock, num lock and perhaps f-lock keys were active or not.

The keyboard I has (logitech dinovo) does not have the key indicator lights on the keyboard (the are on the hub which I would like to hide under my desk) as it uses bluetooth.

Why is it that writers write, but fingers don't fing, grocers don't groce, and hammers don't ham? If the plural of tooth is teeth, why isn't the plural of booth beeth? One goose, 2 geese. So, one moose, 2 meese? One index, two indices? Is cheese the plural of choose?

Alexp: such utility can be done without much work, but would you like to have 3 more icons on the taskbar, or only one?
To have 3 of them, i'd have to do 3 scripts, and that would take like 9mb of memory (each script uses 3mb).
As for the f-lock keys, i think that's possible, but i'm not sure.

One icon would be best I think, something like this (and no sniggering about my l33t paint skillz  Grin)

How about like this: if Caps is on, the icon turns red. If Num is on, the icon turns blue. If both of them are on, the icon turns violet?
My idea is based on the mixture of colours, red+blue = violet,  green + red = yellow, green + blue = cyan. If all are on, the icon goes black. If none if on, the icon goes white.
I don't think i can do the f-keys, but if you're happy with a program that works with the other ones, it can be done Wink
