Turn Off Caps On/Lock On-Screen Notification

HP Recommended
Envy x360
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Every time I hit the Caps Lock key, a grey box in the middle of the screen pops up to tell me whether the Caps Lock is on or off. It's very annoying and unnecessary. How do I turn this off? It's disruptive. 

 

I've tried going through the Ease of Access features and turned off all the settings that would've allowed any notifications- sound and visual- and this notification still pops up. How do I turn it off?

I've been trying everything under Windows 7.

 

The only SOLUTION that I have found is: to install older version of the HP HotKey Support.

In my case that is the version 4.0.15.1 Rev. A. There is NO ANNOYING CAPS LOCK MESSAGE still integrated, which is ALL WE WANTED,edited*!!!

Here's a link to the software: https://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp52501-53000/sp52960.exe

 

Cheers,

Todor
