From time to time, I have an issue when trying to remote into a computer. I'll typed the Windows password and will be told the password is bad. If I enable Caps Lock on my physical keyboard, in spite of the fact that the remote computer is now complaining that "Caps lock is enabled", the password can be accepted just fine.

I just had this happen on an app within Windows, not the login screen. The app was complaining of bad password, so I hit Caps Lock and the immediately alarmed to "Caps lock is enabled" but I verified in a Notepad file that even though the remote machine thought Caps was on, I was actually typing in lower case.

Anyone else seen this or have any suggestions to resolve the issue?

I've seen this many times over the years. No rhyme or reason I've ever noticed.

i've experienced this when the guest and host keyboard's caps lock differ. that is, either i connect with caps lock on mine and not on theirs, or vice versa - the entire session, even if they toggle their caps lock setting, is reversed. i usually disconnect, toggle my own caps lock, reconnect, then switch apps and toggle caps lock again, so that my caps lock indicator (on my side) is correct.

I'm not sure I'm following completely, so basically your Host machine does not have Caps Lock on while the Guest machine does upon connection? Therefore when you enter a password/text it adheres to the state of Caps Lock on the remote machine?
