  1. Shift Key Changes Capitalization


    When I happen to by needing to use the shift key while editing text in most Office applications, the shift key changes the capitalization of the word. Press it once and the first letter comes capitalized, and I think the whole word becomes capitalized if you press shift again. This is insanely irritating, because anytime you are using any keyboard shortcut or anything that requires the shift key, it changes the capitalization status of your words.


    How do I turn off the ability of the shift key to change capitalization?

    :)

    Windows 10 - build 1803 - shift key changes caps of selected text

    Hi,

    After 1803 update shift key behavior changed.

    When you have some text selected in some input box in Edge or other "modern" app, letters cases are changing in rotation: small - 1st capital - all capitals - all small. Tested with both physical & touch
    keyboard.

    Potentially useful, but definitely not if you use shift + mouse of shift + arrow keys to select text.

    If it's not a bug, but a new feature, would suggest to change it the way that caps changes only after say double shift press without any mouse or arrows (without selection changes).

    If selection changes, caps remain unchanged.

    Is there a way to disable it?

    Cheers, Maciek

    Shift + keys not working.

    Hello,

    I am having issues with my laptops keys. When I press shift 2, I get no @ symbol. Nothing at all, it's not giving me another symbol, just nothing. The 2 key works fine, if I hit shift 2 a bunch of times back and forth, sometimes it will give me an @
    symbol. Also like shift M will make a capital M, but shift W will not make a capital w. ( the right shift will not capitalize the W but the left one will. )but it will capitalize others. Neither of the shift keys will work to make like the @ symbol. But
    the 2 key works fine. I am sure this sounds confusing and trust me it is.. any ideas? It is set to us keyboard
