    Strange hotkeys that start working spontaneously


    Hi,


    I am running the latest version of windows on a Dell XPS 8900 and I am having a problem where hotkeys are toggled spontaneously, causing me to have to restart my computer. These hotkeys are using one button on my keyboard, so I cannot use my keyboard to type as all keys are made hotkeys. Clicking W for example opens some sort of pen, and all of the other keys open other windows applications. How can I stop this from happening? It's extremely annoying.

    :)

    My Windows 10 HotKeys Wont Work

    Hi,

    There may be several reasons why the hotkeys stopped working after the upgrade. We suggest you to run the hardware troubleshooter to resolve your concern. Kindly follow the steps below:

    • Type Troubleshooting in the search box and hit enter.
    • Click on Troubleshooting tab.
    • Click on view all option on the upper left corner.
    • Select the Hardware and Device options from the list.

    Let us know how it goes.

    I suggest you to try installing Hotkeys driver.

    Follow these steps after install the drivers check if that helps.

    • Download the keyboard drivers and hot fix (PHotkeys) driver from the manufacturer’s website.
    • Install driver on your system
    • Go to Path of installed driver Right-click on the driver setup file and click on ‘Troubleshoot comparability’.
    • On the ‘Test Compatibility settings for the program pop up windows’ open and click the box ‘Test the program’ Once this is done, check if the issue persists.
