If you miss having the Caps Lock button on your #Chromebook… (via: Google Chrome – Google+)

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/02/13

This reminds me about mapping the CapsLock to Windows-key on old Lenovo keyboard (you can do that with ReMapKey from Microsoft, the slightly more convoluted SharpKeys, or a AutoHotKey script), and a Mac equivalent:

If you miss having the Caps Lock button on your #Chromebook, you can turn the Search button into a Caps Lock button in a couple steps: find “Keyboard Settings” under the “Settings” menu, and select “Caps Lock” under the “Search” drop-down menu.

Or you can use this quick link on your Chromebook: chrome://settings/keyboard-overlay

Chromebook has quite some different keys than a Windows keyboard.

Ben Ostrowsky has a nice post with an SVG drawing of the Chromebook keyboard layout.

(and like Mac keyboards they do not adhere to the ISO 9995 standard)
