Windows 7: Remap CTRL + SHIFT + Arrow Key

Remap CTRL + SHIFT + Arrow Key

I used to always use CTRL + Shift + Arrow Key to highlight a whole word but now when I try CTRL + SHIFT + Arrow Key it changes one of my monitors screen orientation.

I have dual monitors if you are confused with the above statement.

I would like to know how to change it back to highlighting a word rather then changing the screen orientation.

This would be greatly appreciated.

I suspect the problem is in video card related crapware from manufacturer.


You can try the following (for ATI cards):
1. Backup current installed driver with DriverBackup!
to a folder ABC.
2. Turn off your internet connection (unplug cable or shutdown wireless)
3. Uninstall all ATI video drivers and related stuff (Catalyst Control Center, other staff with ATI in the name, etc) through Control Panel Programs and Features.
4. DO NOT LET THE SYSTEM INSTALL DRIVER AUTOMATICALLY. Cancel if it will try.
Instead manually install driver - Control Panel - System - Device manager. You video card will be with small yellow triangle on it, Right click - Properties- Driver tab - Update Driver - Browse my computer for driver software - Browse to ABC folder (see 1). Click Next button.

Please let us know if it worked for you.

I found out it was Actual Multiple Monitors. Just need to find the setting. I found out by ending the process of Actual Multiple Monitors and tried and it stopped. Thanks!

EDIT: Found it! Unticked the Enable hotkeys box pressed okay. Restarted Actual Multiple Monitors and it worked! Thanks

Ctrl + Right Arrow behaviour - how do I change?
It has irritated me for years that ctrl + right arrow puts the caret (the blinky insertion point) at the beginning of the next word rather than the end of the current word. This is irritating because it includes the spacebar character when selecting a whole word with ctrl+shift+right. It is...

shift & ctrl not persistent when held down

Shift+Del somehow became identical to ctrl+v?
Hi. In the last couple of weeks, I've noticed that using shift+del in text input areas, such as Notepad, OOo Writer, browser text fields, etc - pretty much anywhere I can input text - shift+del is acting identically to ctrl+v. I don't know why this is occurring and I want to make it stop. I have...
