Windows 7: Keyboard issue

25 Aug 2016   #1

Keyboard issue

Hello all,

I have a peculiar issue, which developed today without a clear genesis.

My control button (left) is closing windows whenever it is used. So, if I press control and F, the window is automatically closed. My arrow buttons have simultaneously started acting oddly. The right arrow also closes its window, whilst the left one brings up the find function and occasionally the windows mobility centre. These key functions are causing issues in my browser and word, and a restart has not helped.

Any help would be much appreciated because I cant work out what the issue is,

Personally, I've never heard of this sort of issue with the Keyboard.

See if you've accidently held down a key too long and activated Sticky Keys, or similar.

Go into Control Panel> Ease of Access>Make the keyboard easier to use. Make sure everything there is un-checked, except for "Turn on Toggle Keys by holding down NUM LOCK for 5 seconds.

Also, check in Device Manager for problems with the Keyboard driver.

Hi there. Don't know if this is the right subforum. I am often using the US international keyboard. To change certain letters you use the AltGr (right alt) key. For me, it is awkward to use this key. How can I reassign it to some other key? When you do a search on the internet, they say it is the...
