STOP PANICKING! GOOGLE ISN'T TAKING AWAY YOUR CAPS LOCK KEY!

Illustration for article titled STOP PANICKING! GOOGLE ISN'T TAKING AWAY YOUR CAPS LOCK KEY!

WHILE PRIOR REPORTS SUGGESTED THAT GOOGLE WILL COMPLETELY ELIMINATE THE CAPS LOCK KEY FROM ALL CHROME-BASED NETBOOKS, IT TURNS OUT THAT YOU'LL STILL HAVE THE OPTION OF TOGGLING A "SEARCH" BUTTON'S FUNCTIONALITY TO MIMIC THE BELOVED KEY.

THIS IS HOW GOOGLE EXPLAINED THE SIMPLE PROCESS OF TOGGLING THE KEY'S FUNCTIONALITY IN YOUR KEYBOARD SETTINGS:

If you really need Caps Lock so you can post an INSIGHTFUL COMMENT ON YOUTUBE, click the wrench, click Settings, and then go to the System section to change the Modifier Key from a Search key to a Caps Lock key.

SO THERE YOU HAVE IT. NO NEED TO PANIC—YOU'LL STILL BE ABLE TO YELL AT EVERYONE WITHOUT HAVING TO HOLD DOWN A SHIFT KEY THE ENTIRE TIME. [GOOGLE via ISTARTEDSOMETHING]
