Caps lock is a key that you press to make letters that you are typing on a keyboard switch to capital letters. The caps lock button is located on most keyboards above the Shift key and below the Tab key on the left. However, some prefer it in other wikt:locations.[1] If you press the caps lock button it remains in uppercase letters until you press it again. When the caps lock button is on you can hold the shift key while typing to temporarily type in lowercase letters on some computers, such as those running Microsoft Windows computers.[2] Some computers do not have caps locks. One example is a suggestion for the One Laptop Per Child XO-1.[3]
