    When typing, all of a sudden everything I typed is deleted and lost


    I've had a new HP laptop with Windows 10 (I'm used to Windows 7).

    Sometimes while I'm typing an email or listing an item for sale on etsy etc, all my typing is deleted and lost - it seems to be some key I'm hitting. I've tied looking at keyboard setting, but these key button short cuts are still a problem, sometimes other things happen, like I get a pop up asking if I want to reload the page, or I get an inspection screen.

    It is often typing letters such as C, H, B, F...

    Any help appreciated, as it's so annoying. I just spent 10 mins typing an email and it all got lost. *Mad

    :)

  3. Unable to type in to box on 'Control Panel'.

    This issue might occur if some file types for indexing were disabled after the updates. We suggest that you try rebuilding your search index by following the steps below:

    • Press Windows key + R, type control.exe srchadmin.dll, and click on
      OK.
    • Click on the Advanced button.
    • Click on the File Types tab. From here, you can choose to include certain file types from indexing by checking them in the list.

    Let us know how it goes.

    • Press Win + R on the keyboard
