Smile Emacs keybinding CAPS-LOCK to work as a normal TAB

I would like to ask how to change the CAPS-LOCK keybind in emacs to work as a normal TAB, so that I dont have to change the way that the TAB key normally works in emacs by default by making emacs ident the current line.

I already have my emacs init file to write in LISP, where I normally put my macros.

What should I add?

Smile solved

I changed this thread to SOLVED because I have concluded that CAPS LOCK should always be CTRL.

It makes perfect sense to me, feels much more comfortable.

Thankyou anyways.


emacs, keybinding
