Keyboard state on/off on-screen display (Num Loc, Caps Lock, Scroll lock)


Problem: Everytime you turn Caps lock, scroll lock or num lock on or off it is displayed in the lower right corner of my screen.







Reason: It appears to be result of installing Blue Tooth software from Widcomm. For example, if you get your bluetooth drivers from official Broadcom site. This feature was made
for BT keyboard notifications, but I found that native Logitech indicators are way better!

Fix: You have to change registry setting:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Widcomm\BTConfig\General\KeyIndication

Change it from 1 to 0.

Reboot.


Thanks goes to TCO3 from Notebook forums! Cheers mate!
