    Unable to type certain characters using Nepali keyboard

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand that you are unable to type few characters using the Nepali keyboard. I’ll certainly assist you with this.



    Upon researching, I found that certain characters can be typed using the
    Shift and AltGr keys. You may want to give it a try and see if that helps. You can also have a look at the
    Nepali keyboard layout to get a better idea about the characters.



    However, we always appreciate our customer’s feedback, and your feedback and suggestions are very important to us. Hence, I suggest you to provide your valuable feedback and ideas in our
    Feedback Hub, where our developers
    can look into the requests and constantly improve the features of Windows.



    Regards,

    Certain programs make my computer act as if certain keys are pressed down

    Hello,

    Recently, I've been having a very strange issue: while running certain programs, my computer suddenly begins to act as if certain keys on my keyboard are being pressed. In the beginning, it acted as though the CTRL key was pressed (ex: pressing "w" executes
    the "CTRL + w" command). Now, it acts as though my "c" and "v" keys are being pressed (when typing, a string of cs and vs are rapidly typed across the screen). Opening the onscreen keyboard confirms that my computer thinks that the keys are being pressed.
    Only restarting my pc temporarily fixes the issue. Here's what I've done to try to remedy it:

    • press both CTRL keys for 15 seconds
    • turn off sticky keys, toggle keys, and filter keys
    • switch out my keyboard
    • plug my keyboard into a different usb port
    • uninstall and reinstall my keyboard drivers
    • hold CTRL + Shift for 15 seconds
    • reinstall windows
    • run system file checker
    • enter safe mode
    • uninstall and reinstall all of my usb drivers
    • check for malware

    The problem with the CTRL key happened no matter what program I was using, but the problems with the c and v keys have only started while playing a game. Any help in fixing this issue would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
