TuneTracker™ QuickTip

Don't let Caps Lock trip you up

Some broadcasters still do the old "Caps Lock" thing when typing scripts, news, etc. It's a little passe at this point, but hey, if you like it that way, all the more power to ya! Just be aware that leaving Caps Lock on can have some unintended effects when using certain keyboards, in situations where the Shift key has special functionality.

For example, if you hold down the Shift key (or have Caps Lock on) and try to move a window to new location by dragging it by its yellow tab, the tab will slide to the side rather than the window moving. That's because Shift-drag is the way you reposition a window tab (a cool feature, by the way, because it lets you pile windows on top of each other and arrange their tabs like a filing cabinet). There are other features that could be impacted as well, so if you ever notice an odd behavior while using Caps Lock, try turning it off and see if that solves it.
