  1. Backspace key functions automatically


    Hi,Since my Lenovo laptop keyboard is not working, I am using an external keyboard. After restarting the laptop, the backspace key is activated automatically and outlook emails are deleted. It is stopped after pressing any of keys of the inbuilt key.This happens after waking up from sleep mode also.

    :)

    Ctrl + A + Backspace acting as home key

    I think you lost a character in the question, about what shows up in Notepad.

    When I tried Ctrl+A+Backspace in Notepad, I got the same results as pressing Ctrl-Backspace. (This did generate a character that looked like a thin, tall rectangle.)

    I can suggest three approaches:

    • Try altering your behavior. Use Ctrl-A and Delete, instead of Ctrl-A and Backspace.
    • Try a different keyboard. (This may ultimately end up having the effect of altering your behavior a bit. Another possible effect is to eliminate ghosting issues that may occur when too much is pressed simultaneously on some keyboards. Although I'm suspecting that your current issue is unrelated to keyboard ghosting.)
    • Use the downloaded software AutoHotkey to respond to Ctrl-Backspace by having it automatically press Ctrl-A and then either Backspace or Delete. Hopefully the software will be responsive enough to be able to complete its actions before Windows processes your next keystroke.
