  1. AltGr sends LeftControl keypress


    Is there any way to remove LeftCtrl keypress from AltGr?


    I understand that Alt+Ctrl -> AltGr, but AltGr should not send Alt+Ctrl.


    I can't disable AltGr as I need it for symbols, but as my keyboard has some of the F-keys mapped as media keys, I need to press Fn next to AltGr for F7-F12 and easiest way is to press both keys to get e.g. Alt-F12, but this sends also a LeftCtrl which in some situations is annoying.


    Thanks in advance,

    Väinö

    :)

    AltGr sends LeftControl keypress

    laptop doesnt boot automatically

    This is what happened.

    1. Did a repair install and later disabled hibertnate in CMD.
    2. Enabled legacy option ROM in BIOS.
    3. After a few times startup ( i used the system in such mode for 5 days), changed boot option back to default.
    4. Vola!! It boots automatically to win10 without any keypress. Tested it with many starts to confirm the same.
    5. Re-enabled hibernate option using CMD and later selected Fast Startup.
    6. System booted normally, without the need for any keypress.

    I do not know exactly whether such steps resolved the problem or what else happened, hence cannot suggest above steps.

    Many thanks to all members who helped to troubleshoot problems.
