  1. Problem with CTRL+E in PAINT


    Hello, there is no way I can "SELECT ALL" in PAINT using the keyboard, when I press CTRL+E it shows me the properties of the image and when I press CTRL+A it opens the folders, also CTRL+E appears 2 times See attached image. I have Windows 11 Home Single Language V 21H2 completely updated and Paint 11.2206.6.0I uninstalled Paint, reinstalled it and it remains the same. I also tried with the on-screen keyboard and the problem persists. When I used Windows 10 this problem did not happen, it started when I upgraded to Windows 11. Anyone know what the problem might be?

    :)
