I was hammering away at my keyboard when I heard the familiar sound of the Caps Lock being pressed, so without breaking stride I backspaced, corrected my error and kept going. My husband said, "What was that?" Oh, just the caps lock key. "Your computer makes a sound?" Yep.

Easy to do in Windows XP. Control Panel>Accessibility Options> Keyboard
tick "Use Toggle Keys"

When you press caps lock, number lock or scroll lock, you will hear a sound, and you will hear another when the key is pressed again, assuring you that the key is toggled.

I am a horrible typist, and this trick has saved me many minutes of corrections. I thought I would share it in case someone didn't know you could do this, like my husband didn't.
