Windows 7: Modifier Key Shows Up In Floating Tag on Screen (alt, ctrl, shift etc)

I would suggest that you check the options for your keyboard - I have seen several "advanced" keyboards that will display the pressing of keys on the screen, though not one that uses a tooltip to achieve this.

The best known of these keyboard indicators is logitec's setpoint which displays the key status in green at the bottom of the screen - this is of course optional and can be switched off

I have exactly the same problems but with Adobe Premiere on win7u with Wacom Intuos 2 tablet. I could swear I remember that at one point it was something to do with tablet PC input keyboard but cannot find any related settings now and I have a fat feeling that these feedback balloons for modifier keys ARE the reason why Adobe programs are affected. Please help if you have any ideas.

Tue, 28/09/2010 just found out that if I use tablet's mouse than these modifier hints do not appear. It further points to the tablet PC setting, I suspect

I have this same problem, but sometimes the tags get stuck somewhere on screen and block where I'm trying to draw. It's irritating, and I've yet to find a fix for it. I've tried googling it, but this is the only result that might help me. I'm just using the tablet pc settings - not a physical tablet. I tried to tell it to use the regular mouse cursor, but the tags remained.
I know I'm using Vista but I guess the issue didn't get resolved

How to turn off Modifier Key Tooltip display w/ Tablet

Per this posting: Wacom Forum - Wacom Europe GmbH • View topic - B.Pen&Touch/Win7/Modifier key tooltips
if you stop the TabletPC Input Service the tooltips shown under the mouse should stop. Evidently, people with Wacom or other tablets experience this tooltip when pressing Alt or Ctrl or Shift (modifier keys). Note: this service is used by Windows handwriting recognition so you'd need to start the service for those applications.

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...
