If you are anything like me and hit caps lock every other time you reach for shift, here’s how to turn it into a shift key in both linux and windows.
Create a text file with these lines and name it CapslockToShift.reg and double click the ikon:
Warning: This works with western keyboards, I don’t know if it will work if you have something else.
Open the file ~/.Xmodmap in a text editor, or create it if it doesn’t exist. Add these lines and run the command “xmodmap ~/.Xmodmap” in a terminal:
remove lock = Caps_Lock
add shift = Caps_Lock
