Turning off Toggle Keys!

Q: Turning off Toggle Keys!

Hi
I have an ASUS laptop which runs windows 10 but does not have a CAPS/NUM/SCROLL lock indicator light. So naturally I enabled toggle keys, however 6 months on and the constant, irritating beep each time I press a button I need is starting to drive me insane. I have previously researched how to remove this 'toggle keys' feature after it would not disable if i just reversed the procedure i did to enable it. This involved using regedit and removing flags data and restarting the laptop. After numerous attempts this did not work. I have found related settings in the control panel and attempted to turn these off however I click apply and then ok but one return to the settings page the settings has not changes. I expect this is an issue in itself.

Would anyone be able to assist me on this and any help would be greatly appreciated,
Thanks

Is there a way to increase the volume for tones in toggle keys that come out of the computer tower?
I have a pc.ary
 

A:Toggle keys

"Increase the sound??" Normally it's "How do I shut off this beeping!!"

Seriously though, Since the toggle keys use the tower speaker and not the PC's external speakers, I don't believe the volume can be turned up, but maybe someone else will have an idea.

For some reason the Caps Lock Warning beep does not sound whatever I do. I have followed all the methods to set and inset it described in your article ....

Toggle Keys Tone - Turn On or Off

The strange thing is that when I use the Num Lock key to set and unset the Toggle Keys warning beep, I can hear the tone indicating the setting / unsetting, but there is no sound when the Caps Lock Key is pressed in error.

The warning light comes on OK so will have to keep an eye on that rather than relying on the beep. I can live with it but it is puzzling me why this has happened.

Hello Snookie,

You might also check your settings with the driver software that was installed for you keyboard. It may have a setting of it's own for the Cap lock beep as well.

On my old laptop, running XP, I happily set toggle keys to bleep whenever I pressed CAPS LOCK or NUM LOCK. But now, with my new laptop, trying to set this up in Vista is proving difficult.

I go into 'control panel\ease of access\change how keyboard works'. I then check the box 'turn on toggle keys', then click 'save'. The bleep will work for the session, but when I reboot the next day (or whenever) the bleep does NOT work - I have to reset it again.

I've read others are getting this problem, with many people blaming the speakers etc.

Personally I think there is an inherent problem, perhaps in the regisitry.

Can any kind person shed any light on this problem and how to fix it? Or is it just another weakness of Vista.

I'm running a HP DV5 laptop, on Vista with Logitech Nano laser mouse.

Yes my sound is ON and working, all I get when I hold down the NUMLOCK is one beep out of the speakers and a message asking me if I want to enable or disable the feature. I choose yes and nothing happens.

I have read all the posts about it and there seems to be no fix. I am disabled and would like this feature to work as it did in XP

Thank you,

A:NO Toggle keys no matter what I do!

Have you installed all of your Important and Optional WIndows Updates after enabling Automatically get recommended drivers and updates for your hardware? I'd run it now to be sure.


On some OEM PC's it requires a software package after clean install/reinstall to regain full functionality of all the function keys (Fkeys). If XP was preinstalled on the PC were you running the Factory Install or had you already reinstalled? If so I'd look for the software package or Hotfix on the maker's SUpport Downloads webpage.

If this is the homebuilt in your specs with a Dual Boot, what software package did you install for this in XP? If still there I'd boot into XP to see if you see it in Add/Remove in Control Panel.

I use XP Pro with service pack 2 and never had trouble with sound from my toggle keys. I go through control panel and the accessibility options then put a check mark in toggle keys hit apply and ok, the check mark disappears and I have no sound when I hit the cap lock button on the keyboard, the way I have used it before.

I also click on the sound tab and put a check in the use sound sentry check box so it will flash the screen when I accidentally hit the cap lock button.

I've never had a problem with these functions before now nothing will stay checked or function at all.

Anyone know what is going on?

Suddenly, there is no beep when toggling Caps Lock or Num Lock.  One advanced user is GOING CRAZY WITH UN-WARNED CAPS LOCK.

Yes, we've gone into Ease of Access Center and unchecked and rechecked "Turn on Toggle Keys" and even others on that page, but no luck.
This started when we focused on a different problem and had turned off then turned back on a bunch of services.
Questions -

What services, files, dlls, etc. run that Caps Lock beep?Might it even be a Control Panel .cpl file, as it used to be in XP?  Which one?  (In XP, was access.cpl. but that does not exist in 7.)
Should we disable and re-enable the two sound entries in Device Manager?  (Recently, we disabled and re-enabled one of them, but no help.)Might any recent updates have killed the beep?  (MS - shame on you!)  Which ones?Why is this happening to me?

2. "C:\Program Files\nircmd-x64\nircmd.exe" cdrom close E:

However, I'm a bit bothered by the extensive keyboard this laptop has, most importantly, the pagination commands on the arrow keys. I've been meaning to find a solution to disable those and just make them work on the Numpad since it's really bothersome to type on and then go all the way back because of the return pagination key. Is there any solution for this to unbind those commands only on the arrow keys?

This is an odd issue that I have not found anyone else having. I am not sure as to the cause of it. 

Basically, when I press certain pairs of keys, the computer acts as though another key is being pressed as well. 
Some examples:
q+s: qws
w+d: wed
r+y: ryu
k+u: kui
l+i: lio

There are others, as well as ones with 3 keys triggering a fourth. They follow no general pattern (although wd, qs, ku, and li are the same pattern
on the keyboard, that pattern doesn't cause a similar response on other keys, like ef, rg, th, yj, etc.)

This problem has persisted as long as I have had this laptop. I got it used on Amazon. It said that, in terms of condition, it just had a few minor
scratches and such, which is accurate. 

This occurs every time the keys are pressed at the same time (in fact, while typing this, I was constantly having to correct typos such as "everyu",
"lioke",  and "whiole".)

keys? What do they do?
2. I attempt to change the values of these keys. They go back to their original values if I restart, log in, or run ipconfig /registerdns. 

Here is some background. I am on an IT engineering, and I have been looking into a DNS issue we have had for quite some time. The issue is that our AD DNS server records do not update for about half of our machines. We have timestamps dating back a couple of
months (I know, I know, scavenge. The team in charge of that is in the process of getting that set). I have been looking into a multitude of things to ensure all computers' DNS records update. 

In my testing, I have checked several machines and notice that those keys mentioned above have the values of- flags = 2, and registeredsinceboot = 1. On the computers that aren't updating their values are 0. I have attempted to change to 2 and 1 on a computer
that isn't updating, but the values always revert back to 0. 

Perhaps the issue we are seeing isn't related at all to the keys presented, but if you can help me identify the purpose of these keys, and how to save the values if changed, that would be greatly appreciated. At least for testing purpose.
