    SOLVED: Multiple Tabs Opening in Edge and Chrome

    Thank you, thank you, thank you. Your suggestion worked for me, too. I recently purchased a new illuminated keyboard and did not disconnect the old one. Little did I know that the F1 key was stuck on the old keyboard. After reading your suggestion, I checked my old keyboard and couldn't believe the solution to my problem was so simple.

    I have already done an Acronis restore to two different dates and the problem persisted. Can't say how much I appreciate your suggestion.

    Hello Angelica,

    To help you with your concern, we suggest that you troubleshoot the keyboard. Follow these step by step instructions on how to troubleshoot:

    • Type Troubleshooting.
    • On the left side, click View all.
    • Choose Hardware and Devices.
    • It will prompt you to run as Administrator. Enter your credentials then it will check for any problems with your computer.
