    Do you mean disable Caps lock or have it always be on?

    You should be able to remap the key using a program like Autohotkey.

    Autohotkey can to this pretty easily: SetCapsLockState/SetNumLockState/SetScrollLockState

    The trouble is I still want to use the caps button but not its toggle function.

    I guess I can always swap it with another key but I want to leave that as a last option.

    Sorry but this makes no sense to me? You either have it enabled and usable or you don't. How do you "use the caps button but not its toggle function".

    I thought there might be a way to turn that bit off. I do not need it but every other game kinda needs a button to be there, so I guess the only option is to swap it with another one?

    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.

    I think if a certain game was written properly, it would do the swapping for you, or not use the button at all.
