Sometimes I start typing something not realizing CAPS lock is enabled. A lot of times, it’s because I accidentally hit the key while going for the Shift or Tab key. This macro serves as a visual indicator (located at the mouse position) if the CAPS Lock key is enabled.
More details, screenshots and screen recordings are below. As usual, feel free to share any comments or suggestions, or to let me know if it doesn’t work for you.
