Free Caps and Num lock Indicator

main window

Version 2.0 is released with screen capture and more features. Free Caps and Num lock Indicator 2.0– Now supports screen capture

Recently I bought a Wireless Keyboard and Mouse. They are working just fine, but I faced an issue as the keyboard do not have Caps Lock and Num Lock indicator lights. So I searched for a software indicator which will display it on the monitor. There are some good ones, but later I decided to write my own.

It took just few hours to develop one windows application using C#. This application is portable, just 59Kb and while running it may take 5MB of your RAM.
