Hello doinmeedin-- Thanks for the reply. I had already tried your suggestion with the following reults:
1.) When I unchecked the hide inactive icons button the icons did become unhidden when inactive but still no cap locks indicator??
2.) When I attempted to customize there was no listing for the caps lock indicator. Any other suggestions??

Thanks in advance for your time and help

Just found this :
Go to the Microsoft Hardware website and download the appropriate software
for mouse and keyboard. The popups will reappear..
It might help !
