Cap­i­tal pun­ish­ment

Computer Shopper - - LETTERS -

I read the ar­ti­cle about Win­dows 10’s hid­den apps and tools (Shop­per 356) with in­ter­est, and it seems to me that Mi­crosoft makes some very strange, and ar­bi­trary, de­ci­sions about what to re­move, or hide, from each up­date of the OS.

For me one of the most an­noy­ing changes is the re­moval of the Cap­sLock dis­play, with the con­se­quence be­ing an in­creased num­ber of times I en­ter the wrong pass­word try­ing to log into an ac­count as a re­sult of hit­ting the Cap­sLock key by mis­take and typ­ing in up­per case with­out real­is­ing it had been ac­ti­vated.

To get around this, I have had to in­stall a third-party app, TrayS­ta­tus 3.1, but this is only ac­tive once I’ve al­ready logged into my Win­dows ac­count, so er­rors are still pos­si­ble dur­ing startup. Come on Mi­crosoft, does no one think through the con­se­quence of th­ese changes, or is it change for change’s sake?
