This question already has an answer here:

I have a new MacBook Air and I keep bumping the caps lock key. As you can imagine this is really frustrating.

Is there a way to totally disable the caps lock key without having to install software or mucking around with Terminal?

You can do this via System Preferences.

More specifically:

  1. Go to Apple > System Preferences…
  2. Click on the Keyboard pane
  3. At bottom right click on the Modifier Keys… button
  4. Now click on the Caps Lock button to select the No Action option
  5. Exit System Preferences
