Question about Dell Spacesaver USB Keyboard J4624 SK-8115 RT7D50

1 Answer

Keyboard triggers computer shortcuts. Not a virus.

Letters like U pop up the utility manager and L logs my account off the computer and F minimizes the the stuff i'm on. I don't think it's a virus. because it's popping up stuff like my documents and my computer. And I pressed some buttons on my keyboard before it happened too. So i think that's why it's happening. I just want to know what i need ot press to undo it all.

How do I turn off key board shortcuts?


Check your keyboard...

Is the Alt or Ctrl buttons stuck or pressed down?

If none of the above then it sounds like you need a new keyboard.
You'll be glad to hear they are quite cheap to buy and a professional should not charge a lot to replace it if you have the replacement part.

    Windows keyboard shortcuts


    Getting used to using your keyboard exclusively and leaving your mouse behind will make you much more efficient at performing any task on any Windows system. I use the following keyboard shortcuts every day:
    Windows key + R = Run menu

    This is usually followed by:
    cmd = Command Prompt
    iexplore + "web address" = Internet Explorer
    compmgmt.msc = Computer Management
    dhcpmgmt.msc = DHCP Management
    dnsmgmt.msc = DNS Management
    services.msc = Services
    eventvwr = Event Viewer
    dsa.msc = Active Directory Users and Computers
    dssite.msc = Active Directory Sites and Services
    Windows key + E = Explorer

    ALT + Tab = Switch between windows

    ALT, Space, X = Maximize window

    CTRL + Shift + Esc = Task Manager

    Windows key + Break = System properties

    Windows key + F = Search

    Windows key + D = Hide/Display all windows

    CTRL + C = copy

    CTRL + X = cut

    CTRL + V = paste

    Also don't forget about the "Right-click" key next to the right Windows key on your keyboard. Using the arrows and that key can get just about anything done once you've opened up any program.
