  1. Windows Key is L-Alt Key and L-Alt Key is Windows Key. How?


    Wanted to use my PC today and my buttons literally swapped for no bloody reason. The system recognizes the Windows Key as L-Alt and vice versa. How the hell does this even happen? My keyboard worked perfectly fine yesterday. I’m in desperate need of help!

    Keyboard with Tux keys

    Alt+F1 is for the shortcut for the menu, other than that everything is similar. If you use KDE environment you can set it to retain the functionality of the windows key.

    Keyboard with Tux keys

    He's not talking about it from a control standpoint. He want's to physically replace the Windows keys on his keyboards with ones that have Tux on them.

    Windows 10: Right Alt Key working as Clt+Alt Keys

    I have windows 10 on my laptop. The problem comes after Intel graphics diver is installed in the system. When the hot keys given in graphics option is enabled, any of alt+arrow work as clt+alt+arrow key, i.e., as a hot key and rotates my screen even when
    I am not pressing Clt. The default clt+alt+arrow key works as it should be (rotating the screen). But whenever I press Alt+arrow key screen rotates instead of going back or forward or up or skip 10s while watching a video in VLC player.

    When I disable hot keys, alt+arrow key completely stops working while rest of the shortcut key works. I also tried uninstalling Intel graphics driver but then also it doesn't work and alt+arrow keys do nothing while other shortcut key works.

    Edit: All this is happening only with Right Alt key only. But this does not seem to a hardware problem as I had enabled locate pointer when Clt is pressed and when I press R-Alt key alone
    it doesn't show a circle around the pointer. Also, I tested my R-alt on Ubuntu 16.04 where it's working completely fine.
