What is more, CapsLock helps you remap various keys, as well as keys on non-apple keyboards, change the keycode of the keys on SteelSeries Apex Gamin Keyboard and enable the NFER, XFER or KATAKANA key on the PC keyboard.
It is recommended to access the Keyboard panel under the System Preferences and select the “No Action” option for the Caps Lock key via the Modifiers Keys slide sheet. By changing these settings you can significantly reduce the Caps Lock delay while performing the desired action.
