How to turn off Sticky Keys: disable the Ease of Access feature Tip: use the Windows Ease of Access Center
How to turn off Sticky Keys: what are Sticky Keys and why turn them off? Sticky Keys is a Windows Ease of Access feature that makes it possible to use keyboard shortcuts or type capital letters without needing to press more than one key at once. Normally, you'd hold down the Shift key while pressing a letter to type a capital, or hold down the Ctrl key while pressing 'S' to save a document. It's even trickier if you want to use a shortcut such as Ctrl-Alt-Del or Ctrl-Shift-Esc.
With Sticky Keys, you can press Ctrl, Shift or Alt, let go and then press another key - Windows will interpret this as pressing two keys together. You should also hear a beep if you have speakers connected.
That's great if you're disabled and can't press two keys at once, but what if you want to disable Sticky Keys?
How to turn off Sticky Keys in Windows 8 You can't press Shift another five times. Instead, you need to bring up the Start menu (or Start screen in Windows 8) by pressing the Windows key. Now type "ease of access" and click on Ease of Access in the list of results.
If you're using Windows 8, you need to click on the Ease of Access Keyboard settings result, and then it's a simple case of sliding the Sticky Keys toggle to 'off'.
If this does not help you. Let us know the below details to understand the issue bettery.
The difference in the @ and " symbols occurs between US and UK keyboards, where UK keyboards have the " symbol on the "2" key and US keyboards have the @ symbol on the "2" key.
Regardless of what physical drawing you have on the keyboard, you can change the actions of the keys by setting up the appropriate US or UK keyboard layout in Windows.
First, determine whether you'd prefer a US or a UK layout. In the US layout, pressing SHIFT+2 will write @. In the UK layout, pressing it will write ".
Now, from the Start menu, select Settings and go to Control Panel. Once there, search for "Regional and Language Options". Under the "Languages" tab there is a button labeled "Details". Press it, and a new window opens with the keyboard layouts. Use the "Add" button to select the keyboard layout you want (English, US or UK, Qwerty - not Dvorak), then Remove your old keyboard layout. Press OK and exit all the screens, you're done.
The possibility is, you use the different keyboard layout. Check if your language is appropriate. Try to use osk (on screen keyboard) in :
start/run and write there: osk, then push enter.
If in osk your keyboard still exchanging, i'm sure your keyboard layout is error.
but if your osk showing the right result, and your keyboard had the same problem, i'm sure there's circuit error inside your keyboard. You should open it (it need some expert i guess).
Most keyboards now a days usually tell you on screen whether or not the caps lock is on but its possiblbe that when you press the key yowards the left or right hand side a light goes on or possibly in the top center if this is not the case then you may have a faulty keyboard.
The driver will not fix the problem, as this is a mechanical problem. I had the same problem and was able to fix it. Instructions with pictures can be found at: http://lotus.kick-***.net/keyboard
Here are the instructions without the pictures:
I had a problem with my Gateway keyboard where whenver I pressed the left shift key, it type a pipe | (verticle line) character. This is the same character that is above the back slash character . I searched the internet and people were suggesting reloading drivers and apparently Gateway was suggesting a destructive reload of the hard drive. That's absolutely rediculous. After some research, I determined that on some European style keyboards, the backslash/pipe key is between the left shift and the "Z" key. So, I removed the left shift key to experiment. The key simply pops off by sticking a screwdriver under it. (It is not necessary for you to do this).
When I used a little screwdriver to press on the center of the plastic (red arrow) I would get a proper shift key. However, when I pressed to the right (green arrow), I would get the backslash character. If I pushed at the red and green arrow together, I would get the pipe character.
Ah-hah! I determined the problem. The inside of the keyboard is a "universal" type and can be used with U.S. or Europeon keyboard layouts. For whatever reason, the left shift key was hitting both dots under the key. (The dots are visible in the pictures below.) To resolve the problem, it is necessary to disassemble the keyboard. On the bottom of the keyboard is a bunch of screws. Remove all of the screws. If you have any rubber feet, there is probably screws under the rubber feet. The feet are just held on by sticky taope, so they peel right off.
Once all of the screws are removed the top and bottom halves seperate easily. The circuits stay in the bottom half of the keyboard, so set the top half of the keyboard to the side. The red arrow marks where the left shift key presses down.
Pull back the top layer and you will see the flexible circuits. These are also made up of multiple layers. When a key is pressed it pushes these layers together to complete the switch circuit. The red arrow marks the shift key. The green arrow marks the backslahs/pipe key for European style keyboards. The blue arrow is yet another key that is not used on U.S. keyboards.
Pull back the first layer of the switch circuit to expose the space between the circuit layers.
Place a small piece of electrical tape on the extra backslash/pipe circuit connection as marked by the red arrow.
Now simply reassemble the keyboard and that weird pipe character will never accidentally show up again.
Solution. My wireles keyboard stopped working except for the F-Lock key, the Media key and the sleep key. It wasn't batteries, even though I tried, communication was there because the above keys were working. Remove the batteries from your keyboard and let it sit for about 10 minutes. Press the red connect button a few times and other various keys every few minutes during that time. This may be the whole "capacitor discharge" trick, but I tired that with someone elses instructions and my keyboard did not work after 2 minutes of key pressing. I think it just needed more time to clear out the secure settings. Good luck, I was about to trash this keyboard until I tried again
