On most Chromebooks, you can turn off the Caps Lock function by pressing the "Alt" + "Search" keys simultaneously. Here's how:

1. **Locate the "Alt" and "Search" Keys:**

   - The "Alt" key is typically located on the bottom row of the keyboard, near the space bar.

   - The "Search" key is usually located on the top row of the keyboard, next to the "Ctrl" key. It often has a magnifying glass or a square icon.

2. **Press "Alt" + "Search":**

   - Press and hold the "Alt" key.

   - While holding down the "Alt" key, press the "Search" key at the same time.

3. **Release the Keys:**

   - Release both the "Alt" and "Search" keys.

This key combination should toggle the Caps Lock function on or off on your Chromebook. You'll typically see a notification on the screen indicating whether Caps Lock is enabled or disabled.

If the "Alt" + "Search" key combination doesn't work on your Chromebook, you can try the following alternative method:

1. **Open Settings:**

   - Click on the clock in the bottom right corner of the screen to open the system menu.

   - Click on the gear icon to open Settings.

2. **Navigate to Keyboard Settings:**

   - In the Settings menu, click on "Device" or "Devices."

   - Click on "Keyboard."

3. **Toggle Caps Lock:**

   - Look for an option to toggle the Caps Lock function on or off.

   - Depending on your Chromebook model and version of Chrome OS, the option may be labeled differently. It could be labeled "Caps Lock" or "Search as Caps Lock."

4. **Adjust the Setting:**

   - If the Caps Lock option is enabled, disable it.

   - If the Caps Lock option is disabled, enable it.
