Capslock minimizes the game
Is this happening for anyone else? I don't think it's another program doing this, it's only ever happened in blops2

I have a logitech g15 keyboard, and mx518. When I hit capslock and other 'lock buttons' a little notifications pops up, i wonder if that has anything to do with it.

That seems to be an HP keyboard related program. I don't have it though.

On my computer, the bluetooth software (by Widcomm) was causing little "CAPS LOCK:ON" "CAPS LOCK:OFF" messages which were minimizing the game. I turned that feature off via a minor registry edit using instructions from this thread:

HP Keyborards do this, as most open a little box that lights up the caps button. It's annoying :/

Same for me. So +2 internets for this man! In case that forum post ever gets deleted, set '[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Widcomm\BTConfig\General]
"KeyIndication"=dword:00000000' in the registry. If you have issues with capslock minimizing games, you have widcomm bluetooth drivers installed, and you see notifications in the bottom right corner when you hit capslock, this is your culprit.

If you use 'Ralink' bluetooth goods, try this.

1. Push Ctrl + Shift + Esc keys at same time, then your task manager will be shown.

2. Push 'process' tab on the top, and find vksts.exe.

3. Click 'End process' button on the bottom.

4. Try steam game again.

i can enable double scrolling on my gaming pc

On a Lenovo machine: In Task Manager, disable all instances of Lenovo Utility.
