  1. Yes, thanks, worked. Finally something in Win 10 that was an easy fix. Now, do you know how to get the majorly annoying url pop overs to go away in the mail app?

  2. Thank you so much. I’m stuck with a old computer and little problems like this really slow me down.

  3. Solution #1 worked! Pressing the Shift key locates at the right side of the laptop and keeping it pressed, ect ect . I did this after choosing the “Press the Shift Key” in the advanced key settings. This after almost all other options and several hours were exhausted! Thank you!!

    P.S. Before this was fixed the scroll wheel on my mouse which would not scroll vertically but scrolled horizontally instead, so it fixed that problem at the same time.


  5. Thank you so much for this tip, this little thing has been making me suffer, literally. although i did just changed it to press caps lock and it just got back to normal.
