Re: using capslock with the desktop layout.

I always use Laptop layout, and as far as I can tell, both caps lock and the insert key work equally well.

With what JAWS version?

It's been a while since I played with using laptop commands when the desktop layout was the chosen default, but when I did they worked without my needing to change over to laptop layout.  That was definitely in one of the high teens JAWS versions, before they went to the "year of release" nomenclature.
