    Win 98 SE: Toggle Caps Lock off if shift key pressed like on
    typewriter. So when the letter pressed while the shift key is down is
    in Capital letters.

    The default condition of the CAPS Lock key is 'Off'.
    Creation of upper-case characters when the 'Shift' key is pressed is normal

    I believe he wants Caps Lock to shut off and stay off when the shift
    key is pushed. Thus a possible scenario would be: You are typing
    lower case letters, push Caps Lock, and then type more letters, which
    of course appear in upper case. You then push and hold shift, which
    immediately automatically turns off caps lock. At this point, CL is
    off and shift is down, so any letters typed will be upper case still,
    and when shift is released, the letters resume in lower case. This is
    the way typewriters used to work. However, I don't know how to do it.
    :) Sorry.

    Good interpretation of the original post.

    I located this link:

    and an article that covers the procedure.

    A brief overview is below.

    (Note: I tried this on a Windows 2000 system and it worked.)

    Open Control panel (Start -> settings -> control panel)
    Double-click on 'keyboard'.
    Click the tab for 'input locales'.
    Click the button 'change'.

    If you have only one keyboard language installed (most users have only one)
    you must perform the next step.

    Click the button 'add'.
    Select a keyboard language to add to the list. I selected the Dvorak-US

    Now, click your preferred keyboard language.

    Click the button 'key settings' (which should now be enabled).

    Under the heading 'To turn off caps lock' click the radio button 'press the
    shift key'.

    Click OK.
    Click Apply.
    Click OK.

    Hope this helps.
