Hi Mary,

did you try uninstalling Adobe Reader and just use edge browser?. That is where I would start, you can always re-install it if that doesn't help. :)

Hi Wolfie ~ I think I've said this before, I don't want to use Edge and I don't feel comfortable installing and reinstalling software. I'm not good at it, although I'm sure it's simple.

Hi Mary,

did you at least try moving the KB to a different USB port as I suggested earlier?. (I assume the KB is connected by a USB cable?). :)

Hi Wolfie ~ I said earlier that I have a wireless mouse. I did change the USB port that it connects to, but no change.

Hi Mary,

is the keyboard also a wireless device?. That is what I meant, not the mouse!, that said, if they are both wireless devices, you can tell us the make and model and we can look for new(er) or updated drivers for them. :)

Hi Wolfie ~ no the keyboard is not wireless; it's a laptop. Only my mouse is wireless.

Hi Mary,

as far as I can tell, this is the first time you mentioned it is a laptop LOL. :) :) :)

So, open Control Panel > Device Manager > Keyboards and right click it then Uninstall device, restart your laptop and try typing something in a PDF file and see how it reacts. :)

I download / Save As, a pdf file from Chrome, I get random letters and numbers
Hi Mary, I have this same fault (on a PC) anytime I download a PDF be it bank statement, plans, tickets and save as 'xxxx' the keyboard goes crazy... only then, at all other times it is well behaved. Did you ever find the cause / solution or are you just living with it? Its a real pain.
Thanks, Tris

Hi Tris,

the thread is nearly a year old and Mary never came back to us!.

What version of Win 10 do you have, an upgrade may solve your problem?. :)

Hi Wolfie, thanks!

I have Windows 10 Home Version 2004.

If I open 'windows updates' it tells me I'm up to date. But 'The next version of Windows is available... Windows 10, version 20H2

Do you think this would help? Or are you talking about reinstalling Windows altogether?

Thanks for the advice.

Hi Tris,

yes, do the upgrade if you can!.

Use Chrome, by "explorer", I assume you mean Internet Explorer which is no longer supported so use at your own risk!. ;)
