    Key board being triggered to highlight and erase text

    I have an HP Envy using Windows 10. Recently my number pad and backspace key have been malfunctioning at will. They will start a manual highlighting function.. The cursor jumps and begins highlighting the text. Any keyboard stroke or move of the mouse
    continues highlighting text. Any suggestions on why this is happening?t Also pressing the backspace key begins the same highlighting function and pressing it twice deletes a a line or more of text. this can aslo happen when composing an email. Please help.

    How to Highlight Text in Win 10 on Laptop With Keyboard

    Using the tab key to hop between text fields highlights all buttons

    Hello,
    Whenever a dialog box pops up in Windows 10, if it contains text input fields and clickable buttons/radio buttons/checkboxes, pressing the tab key steps through every single item in the dialog box, which is very annoying and, to me, pointless. Do I recall that there might be a way to limit this behaviour so the tab key only highlights text input boxes, and not every single element? I can't find anything useful in Windows 10's Settings/Control Panel - am I missing something or is this not possible?

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
