    Created accidental keyboard shortcut, can't change


    I use the numpad on my fullsize keyboard frequently, and for some reason now when I push the numpad 9, it opens a Windows volume mixer on on the side of my screen. In order to use the numpad 9 to type the number as intended, I have to hold the Windows key while I press it. Any idea how I can revert this behavior and reclaim my numpad 9 key? All the other numbers work btw, and my non-numpad 9 works fine.

    :)
