Check How to On/Off Caps Lock on Your Chromebook
One of the first things new Chromebook users notice is that the Caps Lock key on the keyboard is not actually a Caps Lock key. Google replaced it on Chromebooks with the search key, also known as the home key or, late last year, the everything button. Why? Because many people nowadays prefer to search in sequences of capital letters. And since Google is famous for its search capabilities, it all makes sense.
However, there are times when you may still want to express yourself in full capital letters, and without having the Caps Lock key, you need to hold down the Shift key while typing. However, it doesn’t have to be that way. Here’s how to change the Search key to a Caps Lock key, as well as a keyboard shortcut to do so.
How to turn Caps Lock on and off on a Chromebook
Since Chromebooks don’t have a dedicated caps lock key, as other computers do, you will have to use a keyboard shortcut to activate the caps lock feature.
To activate Caps Lock: Hold down the ALT key and the search key (which has a magnifying glass icon); this will cause a confirmation message to appear in the lower right corner of the screen.
To disable caps lock: Press the Shift key or repeat the keyboard shortcut to activate Caps Lock.
Alternatively, you can also choose to change the behavior of another key on your keyboard, by going into your Chromebook’s settings, which you can access in the lower-right corner of the screen via the gear icon.
In your Settings, select the “Device” tab on the left sidebar, then select “Keyboard” and change your key combinations.
