I have an optiplex 3010 Dell desktop. When I type, the only way I know whether cap lock is on or off is by typing. All previous computer keyboards had an indication light. This wireless keyboard doesn't seem to have any I can find and I was wondering if there's something I need to do to enable it. Otherwise, I have no idea how to quickly determine if cap lock is on or not.

If this is a Dell wireless KM632 mouse and keyboard. Which is the only Dell wireless setup I can find without more info. The Capslock is an on screen indicator. Watch the screen while depressing the caps lock repeatedly and see if you see a real brief overlay of a lock open or closed
