Hello,

I am having problems with what typing what I want as the result is that a browser window may be closed. ll sorts of things. Capital T will open the last browse page in a separate window. A higher case C has just started producing that below the line error and removes what I have just typed. I'm ready to smash this against anything. There are many such issues but I'm too angry right now to list them. I have replaced the keyboard as this happened in Windows 7 as well. No change so I turned all the Sticky keys type functions OFF. Seemed to do the trick for a day but it's all back next day, today. It must have something to do with shortcut methinks as it mostly happens with a capital letter as the first letter of a new sentence.I think that is the best clue. Help.

That sounds very much like sticky keys are still enabled, as if you hold down CTRL and/or ALT with some of those letters, the things you described should happen.

To confirm, is sticky keys now disabled and the problem still happening?

If you've tried a new keyboard and sticky keys are disabled, I'm a bit of a loss.

Do you have any software loading on boot that may interfere with your keyboard? If you had the same problem in Windows 7, I'd have guessed at a hardware problem or some software that was moved over during the upgrade (and you've already checked that it's not hardware).

Can you please attach a screenshot of any of the software loading on startup please (the list shown here: https://www.windows10forums.com/articles/manage-startup-programs.1/).

Where di you go to turn them off? Ease of acces in settings?
I cannot see the relevance, but I wonder if it has loaded the correct keyboard? Might be worthe a try uninstalling it through the device manager and rebooting. Unlikely cause, though, as you say it is the same problem in Windows 7.
