How to keep CAPS lock ON on your Android phone keyboard

We all know how to type in upper case – by taping the caps lock key.

However, this types only one character in upper case and then the caps lock is turned off automatically.If you want to keep the CAPS lock on, then tap it twice continuously.

If you tap again, the CAPS lock will be turned off.

    You have to turn off autocorrect, on Samsung phone keyboard, at least. Or switch to another keyboard, like swype, which leaves caps lock on, even with aitocorrect on.

  10. Hold the caps button for two characters and then it would turn similar to what keyboard caps lock does in pc.

  11. Hold the caps button(arrow) for 4-5 seconds. Then it would work similar to what keyboard caps lock does in pc.

  12. Lock the Caps key (Android and iOS)

    See the Shift key? Just double-tap it. When you do, a little horizontal line will

    appear near the bottom of the Shift key, indicating that you’re in ALL CAPS mode.
