Following this old thread, I have found that the same issue I'm currently experiencing with my brand-new PC and brand-new Windows 11 installation is a 2021 bug.

I would like to know if there is any fix for it.

What happens is: capslock works perfectly prior to booting. After Windows 11 kicks in, the capslock function no longer works. Simple as that.

I have tried and tested three different keyboards which are working flawlessly on other systems, to no avail.

My build:

Ryzen 5600X
Gigabyte B550M DS3H
Radeon R290X
2x 16GB Patriot 3600
1TB Crucial P3 PCIe M.2

Any directives for that?

    Hi, thanks for coming into the forums. I'm also a user like you and I'll be more than happy to help you to the best of my knowledge.

    1. Update your Keyboard driver. Right-click the Windows start > select Device Manager > Find the Keyboards and expand it > Right-click the drivers and select Update. If that doesn't work, follow the same steps but instead of updating, right-click and select uninstall. Restart your computer.
    2. Reset your PC https://support.microsoft.com/windows/0ef73740-b927-549b-b7c9-e6f2b48d275e
