BoldFinger 1.0: Downloading and setting up

The files

The ZIP-archive (18kb) contains the following:

  • Boldfinger.exe (36KB: the actual program)
  • Licence.txt (3KB: the Licence Agreement for using the software)
  • ReadMe.txt (2KB: some information for anyone who missed these web pages)


Windows 95, 98, NT, 2000, XP, 7

Setting up BoldFinger

  1. Unzip the archive and read the licence agreement before proceeding.
  2. Create a folder for the BoldFinger.exe file somewhere on your machine.
  3. Copy the program into that folder.
  4. Create a shortcut to the program and place it in your startup folder on the start menu.
  5. That's it!

Using BoldFinger

  • BoldFinger will load itself at startup.
  • It has an icon in the system tray, so you can stop it if you wish.
  • If you actually do want to use Caps Lock, then toggle it by holding down the ALT key while pressing the Caps Lock key.
  • The program keeps track of how many times you have accidentally pressed the key. To see this number, just move the mouse cursor over the BoldFinger icon.


Generally, you are free to redistribute the zip archive among your friends, but redistribution is dealt with fully in the Licence Agreement. You are not allowed to redistribute anything except the whole zip file, because we don't want people to get the program without the documentation and licence agreement.

Support and feedback

We would be glad to hear of any problems which are experienced in setting up the software or using it, but we cannot undertake to fix them.

Lots of visitors have downloaded the zip, and a few have sent us euphoric congratulatory emails. It makes us feel noble and grand, so don't hesitate to do the same.
