Remap Capslock Control

By Ronald Valente. Published

I cannot remember the last time that I used the caps lock key. This is because it is not useful. There is never a scenario where it is beneficial or socially acceptable to use the caps lock key.

Why Remap Capslock to Control?

Do yourself a favor, remap caps lock to control and enjoy many years of conflict-free typing. As a side benefit it will also reduce the hook pinky finger from not having to use the control key all-the-way-down-in-the-bottom-left-corner of the keyboard key.

How It's Done

  1. Open "System Preferences"
  2. Click "Keyboard"
  3. Click "Modifier Keys"
  4. Set Caps Lock to "^ Control"

That's it, you're all set!
