  1. Windows key bug?


    So today i was playing apex legends and in the middle of playing, my keyboard started acting as if i were holding down the windows key.

    it was giving me the Windows + S function to search when just pressing S, thus tabbing me to desktop.

    Windows + D to bring me to desktop, while just pressing D. and so on.



    so i restart my PC and it fixed the problem. however i cant help but be concerned and wonder why it all of a sudden did this. (without me even pressing the windows key)



    I also pulled up the virtual keyboard before restarting and it was also effected (tested while keyboard was unplugged even. this was to remove the physical key as a variable, AKA it wasn't just stuck)



    So google says other people have had this issue and had to disable their windows key entirely. just wondering if anyone else has any solutions or information to share with me. as google was a little disappointing and often led to windows 7 links, thanks!

  2. Taskbar bug: switching to another window -will not appear at the front


    Follow either of these steps to fix the issue with the Active window hiding behind.

    Method 1:
    I suggest you to disable window by hovering over it with the mouse and check if it helps. To do so I suggest you to try the below given steps and check if it helps:

    1. Press Windows key + X key and click on Control Panel.
    2. Select or click Ease of Access.
    3. Click or tap onEase of Access Centre.
    4. Click on Make the Mouse Easier to Use was uncheck Activate Window by hovering over it with the mouse.
    5. Check if issue is resolved.
    Method 2:
    I would suggest you to completely uninstall the touchpad driver and reinstall it. Kindly follow the below given steps.

    1. Press “Windows key + X” and click on “Device Manager”.
    2. In the list of devices, you should see the touchpad drivers.
    3. Right click on the device and then select "Uninstall".
    4. In the uninstall dialog, make sure you select the option to delete the driver package from the system. This causes the driver package installed earlier to be deleted.
    5. In the Action menu of Device manager, select “Scan for Hardware changes” option. This will cause the device driver to be reinstalled. Once the driver is installed, close all windows and restart the computer.
