I sometimes lean on the right shift key for over 8 seconds… usually while pondering how to phrase something.
And then the xp filterkeys menu pops up.
What really annoys me about it is that once you click the cancel button, it still gets activated.
All the special keys (ie number keys on top of the letters, and keys like ,.;’][/ will all be shifted (regardless of the pressing the shift of caps key).
I eventually got so sick of it, that i decided to try and find a solution.
The answer seems so simple: just press both shift keys at the same time.
But by this stage, that wasn’t enough. I wanted to disable it permanently.
control panel -> accessibility options -> untick everything
Then click on the filterkeys settings button, untick “use shortcut”.
hit ok a few times to save the settings… and it should never bother you again!
