Caps Lock not working correctly

My problem is that caps lock is not toggling on and off by pressing [Caps Lock]. I can press shift+caps lock and it will toggle or I can press alt+caps lock and it will toggle.

I have checked to make sure that the settings are set correctly in ease of access and in region and language. Ive tried a clean boot also and get the same problem. I can boot in safe mode and everything works as normal.

I have younger kids that bang on the keyboard when I'm at work. Seems like something may be messed up in the registry or keybindings somewhere I'm not looking

Appreciate any help

Make a backup prior to doing this, you can use system restore.

You want to enable CAPS LOCK again, you need to delete that registry entry, so you need follow these steps:
1. Press WinKey+R > type regedit and press Enter
2. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout
3. Right click on the Scancode Map > Delete
4. Restart your system
