    No Caps Lock Lights? Microsoft Says a Fix Is on Its Way.

    Since it's still in preview stage, Windows 10 comes with plenty of bugs, some of which are really awkward and make people wonder how come that Microsoft didn't fix them before pushing the new OS to users.

    The best example comes from the keyboard of Windows 10 Technical Preview build 9879 users, as the lights for the Caps Lock, Num Lock, and Scroll Lock keys no longer work after deploying the latest release of the OS.

    In a short tweet posted this morning, Gabriel Aul, who keeps us posted on Windows 10 news, says that Microsoft is working to repair this problem and a fix will be included in the next update.

    Thanks for posting the article link, labeeman, but I must say that this site gets worse as time passes. I’m surprised that Bogdan truly did a bad job on this one. Geez. Talk about sensationalism and misinformation. Firstly, he shouldn’t mix up “update” with “build release”. Correct me if I’m wrong, but MS stated that they wouldn’t be releasing a build until after the first of the year, not updates. What makes him assume they cannot fix this this via a simple Windows Update before then?

    Since it's still in preview stage, Windows 10 comes with plenty of bugs, some of which are really awkward…….

    ……Unfortunately for those who cannot live without this particular keyboard feature, Microsoft won't release any other update to Windows 10 Technical Preview until early 2015, so getting back to their stable operating systems could be the easiest way to deal with the problem.
    “Which are really awkward”?! “Cannot live without this particular keyboard feature”?! The keys work with their function, it’s just that the lights don’t. How is that “awkward”? Perhaps a little inconvenient, but awkward and cannot live without? Bogdan gets 10k Internet points for the most sensational article to date.

    I have Num Lock to “On” in my BIOS and a sound to alert if or when I press Cap Lock, sometimes mistakingly. I think I can live through this.

    But... without the sensationalism, how can he win fake internet points?
