If you often face the issue of accidentally turning on Caps Lock while typing, CaPNotifier is an application that notifies you every time you switch on Caps Lock, Num Lock, or Scroll Lock etc. A notification pops up in your notification bar and stays there for a few seconds before disappearing, letting you see if your Caps Lock has actually been turned on. The application also allows you to receive notifications for Control, Shift and Alt key presses. You can turn notifications on and off for individual keys in CaPNotifier.

When you install the application, the Settings window pops up on the first run. The Settings menu has the options to turn alerts on and off for NUM Lock, CAPs Lock and Scroll Lock. Other options let you turn on alerts on press of Shift key, Control key and the Alt key. Click Save Settings to save all the notification settings and click Calibrate Program to calibrate the application with the current state of keys. Clicking Show current state of Caps Lock and Num Lock lets you view if they are on or off at the moment.
