  1. Shift Key - Straight Line


    Hi,


    What is the code in windows that allows users to draw a straight line while holding down the "Shift"key?

    I noticed some applications allows the users to draw a horizontal and vertical straight line while others allow straight lines at 45 degree angles as well.

    Looking For A Very Simple Program To Create A Straight Line


    So check this out. I want a very small and simple program that will create an on-screen (on this desktop monitor) a straight line with very simple steps.

    1) I hold down a certain combo of keys (to not interfere with Microsoft Windows' intended single action keys, such as Ctrl by itself, or Alt by itself). So something like "Ctrl+Alt" then left click on a specific part on the screen to set the start location of the line.
    2) I can keep holding down Ctrl & Alt, then click somewhere else on the screen, then a straight line would be made.
    3) This line would stay on the screen until, let's say, I click on it to delete it.
    4) Let's say that there's more advanced options to set the line's color, thickness, etc.

    Example:
    I want to draw temporary straight lines on a Google Chrome window.

    Is there any program as such? *Smile

    Both shift keys

    Hello.
    I have problem with Lenovo Idea Pad 100 laptop (OS: WIN10). After replacing HDD into SSD I faced a strange problem. Both Shifts of the keyboard doesn‘t work .
    I have tried to:
    • Check if sticky keys are off. They are off.
    • Connect external keyboard via USB port. Shift keys on external keyboard works good.
    • Check the keyboard on online tester which indicates pressed buttons. It can‘t indicate press of the shift
    • Change several different input languages. The problem is on all of them.
    • Reinstall keyboard driver
    • Check if connection is OK. It is OK.
    • Tried to run computer without screws (I have read in one forum that screws could touch the keyboard from the bottom and it wouldn‘t operate normal)
    I believe that keyboard is not damaged because connector damage could cause just exact part of keyboard failure, while it is impossible to do physical damage for both shifts. Any solutions?

    Shift Key - Straight Line

    shift keys not working

    I upgraded to windows 10 on my Toshiba laptop and then did the windows update and when I tried to do anything with the shift key neither one works. I read all the suggestions I could find in here and tried most of them with no luck. I ran the hardware
    and device troubleshooter, I went to the keyboard on control panel and it says it's working properly. I tried shift/control/alt keys all together. I downloaded and scanned with anti malware and I did the fn and del keys with no results. I would like an easy
    fix for this as I believe it is a windows 10 and or update for windows 10 issue. I am not real savvy on the computer so I need step by step instructions, please and thank you.
