In order to type upper case in terminal, I have to hold caps_lock+shift together which is very upset. I have tried to change the keyboard layout in settings > region&language>input source,but it seems no one is suitable.

  • if there is a keyboard layout suitable, please recommend it to me. I will really appreciate it Jun 1 '20 at 10:37
  • i find that i can type lower case when hold shift and after releasing it, I type upper case Jun 1 '20 at 11:05
  • What heppens when you type without holding any modifier key (no SHIFT ot CAPS)? Pres ad release CAPS, and typing, what then? Holding down SHIFT and typing ?

  • yes.without any key holding, i will type upper case,if i want to type lower case,i have to hold shift (left).there is no any effect after press and release CAPS . Jun 2 '20 at 0:02
  • Pressing and release CAPS should change the behavior of your keyboard to "normal" lower case pr default and CAPITAL with shift. Don't the keyboard have a caps ligt that toggles on and off when pressing CAPS? If this doesn't work your keyboard (or at least the CAPS key) might be broken.

Ctrl+CapsLock worked for me.


Well, I find...

  1. The first time I log into the terminal(reload computer rather than close the terminal and open again), I can type lower case, if I hold the Shift key, then the case will turn upper.

  2. If I press the CapsLock key, then the situation will turn around which means that I will type upper case without holding any keys and have to hold the Shift key in order to type lower case

  3. There ever exited a situation that if i pressed Win+CapsLock, I could change the situation, but only one times.

It worked.
