One of the [Shift] keys on your keyboard is sticking (down)...
Look at them & "tap" to un-stick the stuck one
.
If you are brave, hold the keyboard upside down and give it a gentle whack. You will find "stuff" ..
Get a can of compressed air ($7 Radio Shack, Best Buy, Office Depot, etc.) and turn keyboard on its side and spray!

How do I highlight words on notepad?


To highlight text permanently, similar to a highlighter on paper, use WordPad instead of Notepad. Find WordPad by searching on the Start menu or Windows 8 Start screen. In WordPad, first select the text you want to highlight, and then open the drop-down menu next to the highlighter icon, located near the font settings. Pick a color to highlight the text. After setting the color, merely click the highlighter icon to highlight selected text with the same color. Word 2007, 2010 and 2013 offer an identical feature, used in the same manner. Word also includes the option to click the highlighter icon first and then select text to highlight

Cut and paste


Learning how to cut and paste can make your life on the computer much easier.
It saves time and is more accurate that retyping the information, particularly if you do it several times.
If you know how to highlight words on your computer, you can easily copy sections of text and paste them somewhere else.

Open a text document or an email that contains some type.
Click at the end of the block of text you located in Step 1 and drag with your mouse back to the beginning of the text to highlight the entire block of type you wish to copy.
Release the mouse. The selected area should be highlighted in a color, usually blue.

Right-click the mouse on the highlighted text and a drop-down menu appears.
Select "Cut" to copy the highlighted text and remove it from its original position.
Select "Copy" to copy the highlighted text and leave it in its original position.
Paste the text you copied.
Right-click in an editable text box and select "Paste" from the drop-down menu.
The text appears in its new location.
Alternatively, highlight the text and hold down the "Ctrl" key on your keyboard while you press the "X" key to cut the text or the "C" key to copy the text.
These keyboard shortcuts copy the text that is highlighted.
To paste it, click in a text box and use the "Ctrl" and "V" shortcut to paste.

My desktop icons are written clear but under colour


If you are running XP, click Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore.

Follow the prompts and select a bold date back to a time earlier than this problem occurred. It will require a reboot, but stands a good chance of resolving your issue.

It will not remove anything from your computer, but you may have to re-install any software recently installed.

If you get it fixed and then re-install some software, the problem may come back. That would let you know the software is causing the problem.
