Keyboard Leds is a tiny tool that allows you to view on the screen a simple but useful function: the status of Num, Caps, and Scroll lock keys. For this, the program provides two visual methods: an icon on the system tray or a small on-screen display that pops-up if any of these functions are activated.

Some of its on-screen display advantages are that they are small, semitransparent, and can be easily placed anywhere in order to avoid overlapping with other windows or applications. Besides that, their colors are also customizable, and you can activate a beep when the lock state changes.

All the configuration parameters can be modified from its settings window. But also, you can directly activate or deactivate the function states.

For Windows Vista, 7, and 8 users, the application's tray icon may be not visible at first since some icons are automatically grouped and hidden. To make it always visible, you just need to click on the 'show hidden icons' button and drag it into your preferred position in the taskbar.

So, whether or not your keyboard has indicators lit for these function keys, I can assure you that this application will help you.
