Under Windows 10 I'm using Japanese keyboard with Microsoft IME. The Caps Lock function was as usual in US keyboard - Toggle the Caps Lock state. By some unknown reason today it was changed by itself and now switches Kana/Alpha. The Caps Lock status now toggled by Shift+Caps Lock.

How to return back the original behaviour and toggle Caps Lock without Shift key?

I have no any third-party keyboard mapping applications and don't want to use them. I want to make Windows working as it was previously.

When switching to US keyboard layout the Caps Lock functions as expected, no need to press Shift to toggle the state.

Editing key template in Advanced IME settings doesn't help. Here I can remove any IME function from the Caps Lock key, but it still require Shift key to toggle the state.
