If you have a new model notebook, netbook or a cordless keyboard that has no indicators for Caps Lock, Num Lock and Scroll Lock, then you might find it difficult sometimes, especially when entering passwords. Keyboard LEDs is a small tool that was designed to solve all problems regarding this issue.
The app has a simple interface that should be easy to figure out by all users.
As mentioned, the program can be used to compensate for the lack of built-in keyboard LEDS. By default, the new state of the three keys is displayed in the system tray with a three-column icon.
If the buttons are pressed, the assigned columns become colored in a user-defined shade. While it’s possible to define a custom shade, you may also pick one of the available hues, such as black, maroon, green, olive, teal, silver, red, yellow, blue, white or aqua, to name just a few. You can assign Num Lock, Caps Lock and Scroll Lock to any of the buttons.
The status of these keys can be displayed on the desktop. You can choose if to display all of the buttons or only some of them, such as caps lock. The color for the text and background can be customized, as well as the size of the frame.
The on-screen display can automatically hide when all are off or after a few seconds. The program can be launched at system startup.
All in all, Keyboard LEDs is a nice app that can be quite useful to have around, especially if you own a device with no indicators for these keyboard locks. Less experienced individuals should find it easy to handle, thanks to the intuitive layout and its overall simplicity.
