SUMMARY: See at a glance whether or not the Caps Lock, Num Lock, or Scroll Lock buttons have been pressed via indicators on the Excel 2010 Status Bar.
However, keyboards normally have two other locks available – Caps Lock and Num Lock. Unless you have software that automatically displays this information in the Windows taskbar or other location, might it be useful to see onscreen whether one or all of these locks are active? Luckily making this change is easy:
1. Right-click an empty area of the Excel 2010 Status Bar.
2. Underneath the pop-up menu “Customize Status Bar”, check or uncheck “Caps Lock”, “Num Lock”, and / or “Scroll Lock” as desired.
