Does this mean that the capitals lock is working but just not telling you?

Please provide the make and model number of your computer.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Check your keyboard, many have a Caps Lock light that turns on/off when you press the Caps Key.

Can you get capitalized letter at all?

Simply pressing the caps lock key will not produce anything on the screen... That caps lock "key" is nothing more than a simple switch to change the case of the letters and keep them that way; until you press the caps lock key again, and thus revert the letters to lower-case... You need to press any of the actual keyboard character keys to get something on the screen?

Just a heads-up. Some computers do give an on-screen visual, my wife's Lenovo for example. That's why I asked if caps lock worked or was it just the visual that was missing.

ummm - one doth live 'n learn... I don't recall seeing that when I used Windows as my primary OS - but who knows? Nowadays mostly I run Mac with Windows around as/when required. Will keep that little snippet in mind for future use. Tak

"one doth live 'n learn"
A very true statement - I do it all the time.

I only use a Mac when it's raining.

It rains down there in East Kent...? I thought it was a land of sunshine, flowers, fruit, and veg. (and the awful mess called the Channel Tunnel entrance...).

I daren't take my Mac out in the rain; prefer an umbrella...

this a really stupid requirement
If by this you mean the minimum characters limit on here then that is space to try to get folk to provide useful information. You've proved the point, hence my questions at #2. We don't even know what computer you mean and there are 1000s of different types.
