So important and controversial - all about the Caps Lock button

Portal Nastroyvse will tell the whole truth about the controversial and at the same time important computer key - Caps Lock. Users actively seek to learn and learn how to use it properly. But it is accepted by no means all. However, in this article SOME SUGGESTIONS, THEIR PARTS AND EVEN WHOLE PARTS WILL BE WRITTEN WITH ITS HELP.

Use the Caps Lock key.

What it is

Translated from English, caps lock is translated as a stub. Its main role is to fix the upper case while typing. It is used if you need to write a slogan or a long text in large letters. This may be necessary in correspondence with visually impaired people, children who better see and perceive large letters, or when conveying information to citizens at a distance — large letters in combination with high pins of fonts can be easily seen at a distance. Examples of using the button:

MOSCOW VDNH - KIEV CENTRAL (bus route)

HELLO, KATYUSHA! HOW ARE THE GARDEN IN SADIK? I WILL COME TO 4. MOM (sms pupil of the kindergarten who sees better capital letters).

ATTENTION! At 14-30 on March 27 in your house it will be to work a mobile payment center. WISHING TO PAY MUNICIPAL PAYMENTS OR DEBT ON CURRENT ACCOUNTS TO APPLY TO APARTMENT 37 TO MERCHANTABLE MARCHENKO VARVAR NIKIFOREVNI OR BY PHONE +79080643765 (an ad for tenants of the entrance).

This key is able to emphasize the importance of the message or the emotional component of the text. But in many online communities or companies, Caps Lock correspondence is identical to shouting. For a response using this option, the user may receive a warning or even a ban on communication, and an employee of the company - a monetary penalty or disciplinary reprimand.

The cunning of the button is in its location. 99% of the keyboards have it above the key for increasing the font. People with fast fingers may accidentally touch it and write text without looking at the screen. And just finished, they raise their eyes and see what they have done. But this is not so much scary consequences, but it does not comply with the rules of etiquette. And the activity indicator Caps Lock is not everywhere. For example, on the author's laptop there are no Caps Lock bulbs, side digital pad and scroll lock. And on the keyboard of a stationary PC they are.
