    When I hit shift + m it acts like the enter key


    Hi, I've been having an issue for a couple of months where when I hit shift + m it acts like the enter key whilst holding shift at the same time. This is very annoying when I'm typing things and searching up stuff. Please help me out here.

    :)

    Any suggestion how to remap keyboard [Enter] > [Shift-Enter]?

    I've used SharpKeys successfully to remap keys.
    - I remapped Delete key to the Insert key when the former was defective
    - On another computer, I remapped t to ` [again because a key was not working correctly]
    You would remap Shift-Enter to Enter

    You can select keys from the list or, as illustrated here, you can select Type key and press the key / key combination you want.

    But you do realise that you'll lose the ability to press Enter?
    - You don't say why you want to do this so I can only guess that the 'normal' Enter function would sometimes be needed.
    - You could also remap Enter to Shift-Enter so you would still have the function available for use.


    Best of luck,

    Taskbar acts as if Shift key is pressed when it's not?

    1 I agree that this is a problem. That context menu should only appear if shift-right-click is pressed.

    2 I assume you do not have any utilities like Classic shell running that affect the user interface?

    3 I suggest going to your computer maker, getting a new copy of the graphics driver & installing it.

    4 Does this problem affect others users? If you don't know then create one and test it.

    5 Do you have an alternative mouse/touchpad that you can try?

    6 Are there any warning triangles in Device manager or any group calledOther devices?

    shift key acting like it's stuck, ctrl and num keys don't work

    Hi janieneh,

    There's a possibility that the keyboard issue that you're experiencing may be due to having an outdated driver or could be a software conflict. However, there's also a chance that sticky keys may have been enabled on your laptop. Before we try to troubleshoot
    the software side, please try the following workarounds and see if one on the list addresses the problem:

    • Turning off Sticky Keys.
      • If this feature is turned on, then have it turned off. Just navigate to
        Settings > Ease of access > Keyboard > Sticky Keys
        , then toggle it
        Off
        .
    • Holding down both Shift keys.
      • Press and hold down both Shift keys at the same time for 4 to 5 seconds.
    • Perform full shutdown
      • To perform a full shutdown, click the Windows key > Power Icon > Shutdown. Once computer is off, press the power button to boot it up.
    Please let me know if the issue persists after performing the steps above by replying to this thread. This way, I'll get notified and respond back to you as soon as I can.

    Regards.
