CAPS lock stuck on in Photoshop 6

Having used Photoshop 6 for several years it was only today that I discovered the "All Caps" feature - by accident! I was trying to add some text to a photo and it kept writing in CAPS only. My caps lock key was off, I shook all the dirt (!) from the keyboard to check the Shift key wasn't stuck, but it still persisted in writing in CAPS. Anyway, after a bit of searching around I discovered you could enable/disable this by doing the following:

In Photoshop, go to the menu Window > Show Character

Then in the Character window open this menu and disabe "All Caps" as shown in the image.

Hope that helps - in the meantime I still have no idea how I turned it on in the first place!

Thanks so much, I don't really know how I enabled it, but I couldn't find the feature to turn it off until now. I think this is a silly option to include in the interface as there is a key on the keyboard specifically meant for this purpose.

I am using Photoshop Elements 9 and all of a sudden my text is in all caps. I don't have the character palette in my version t. My caps lock is not on. I've tried other shortcuts suggested (ctrl+alt+m and ctrl+alt+y) and those didn't work either. I uninstalled and re-installed the software and it's still in all caps.

I use Photoshop almost everyday, so really need to find out how to fix this. Any other ideas?

Thank you so much!
