    Windows button becoming sticky - shortcut


    Hello guys.

    I am writing to you because I am highly annoyed by this stupid windows 10 feature, which whenever I press a certain combination of keys on my keyboard it turns my windows button to sticky and I can not type or do anything at all. My only option is signing out from the system and logging back again so it resets.

    Please do not tell me this is a keyboard issue, or driver issue, or sticky keys not being turned off (I turned them off already). This is an explicit annoying windows feature that is getting on my nerves.

    I would like to know what is the shorcut combination and how can I turn it off when it happens. I accidentally manage to press the combination when I play games. I am certain the shorcut exists because I have googled this issue numerous times last year and managed to find the combination once, but I am unable to find it again and I do not remember it.

    Thanks for the help.

    :)
