How to disable the Caps Lock key on Mac

Caps Lock is the the most unnecessary key on the keyboard for me. I rarely need to write more than couple of words in capitals and to often I accidently hit the key, suddenly finding myself typing IN ALL CAPS
Here’s an easy way to change the behavior of your Mac’s Caps Lock key and even disable it altogether.

  • Click the  icon in the top-left corner of your desktop and select System Preferences
  • Select the Keyboard icon and click the “Modifier Keys” button in the bottom-right corner 
  • From the pull-down menu next to “Caps Lock Key”, select “No Action” 
  • Press “OK”
