How to remove Caps Lock indicator from displaying permanently on desktop screen - ThinkPad
Symptom

Once "Caps Lock" key is set to "On", the "Caps Lock on" indicator is displayed on the desktop screen permanently.
When the Caps Lock key is set to "Off", the "Caps Lock off" indicator is displayed for a 3 seconds and disappears.
This seems to be the default setting for the "On-Screen Display" package that is part of the "Hotkeys Features Integration" package.
