    Not sure if this is what you want but you could try this.
    Install AutoHotKey as suggested in post #2 above and do one of the following:

    Remap the caps lock key using the example shown on the AutoHotKey page linked in post #2 above. Change Ctrl to any key you want
    Makes Capslock become a Control key. To retain the ability to turn Capslock on and off, add the remapping +Capslock::Capslock first. This toggles Capslock on and off when you hold down the Shift key and press Capslock. Because both remappings allow additional modifier keys to be held down, the more specific +Capslock::Capslock remapping must be placed first for it to work.
    Create a script that remaps the Capslock key to any key you want and only launch it when you play a game that needs the change
    The syntax for the built-in remapping feature is OriginKey::DestinationKey. For example, a script consisting only of the following line would make the "a" key behave like the "b" key:

    Sorry but I still don't understand (my problem, not yours). By "turn that bit off" you mean the Caps lock function? What do you want the key to do then? I suppose you could make it a dead key with AutoHotKey so that it is still enabled but does nothing. Not sure about that though, you'd have to try it.
    My train of thought can be to simplistic/confusing/silly/dumb all at once, streaming conscious FTW. LOL

    I want to use the physical key/button however I have no need for it's toggle function as I randomly hit it(I look at the keyboard when I type) when I write resulting in random caps, rewriting stuff sucks.

    I think if a certain game was written properly, it would do the swapping for you, or not use the button at all.
    Thats not the problem, the problem is me hitting caps lock all the time when I hunt and peck using the keyboard and sentences coming out with random or all caps..

    So I infer there's no half option you just have to change it to activate another key, this is fine I dunno why I focused on getting rid of the toggle only...I do that alot when my OCD targets something even I get tired of it LOL.

    You could try adding a beep whenever you hit the Caps Lock key.
    Then if you hit it accidentally you will get a beep and know before you continue typing in upper case.
    The setting is in Ease of Access Center.
    I'm on W8.1 right now, but i expect W10 is similar.
    Also, some programs have "change case" options such as "Set Lowercase".
    I know this isn't what you asked for, but some things you could try to see if they help.
