    Hi I'm new to here, but have had my Macbook Pro for just over two years, I had a problem with my Mac over the weekend & was told by apple care to reload the sortware, which I did but lost everything :(

    When I 1st got my Mac I found a cap locks short cut where you hit the shift button once, then the next letter you hit will be a capital or hit it twice & everything will be cap locks, until you hit it again, just like on the iPhone, but I can't find the setting now :(

    Any help will be very much appreciated :)

    How would that be a shortcut of the caps lock key?

    :) yes they work but you could just hit the key once like hitting any key & the next key you hit would be caps, you would not have to hold down the shift key just hit it once.

    I just got used to it :)

    Like on the iPhone key pad

    That's the function of the Caps key, but then all letters are capitals.

    You mean like hitting it once, the next pressed letter is a capital, but the one after that is normal again? Like with SMS and such services?

    invalid post, as ergdegdeg already answered it.

    THAT's a nice feature.

    Thank you :)

    That's it, even the people in the apple shop in Kingston (UK) could not help me.

    Thank you :)

    It is, I really got used to using it, but everyone I talked to (apart from here) didn't know what I was talking about :rolleyes:

    I try that feature for a while, but I think I had it enabled once (many years ago) and it feels strange to just hit the Shift key, as my pinkie is hitting and holding it quite fine.

    Have fun with it. :)
