It seems your sticky keys got turned on somehow. Press shift key five times and it should turn off the sticky keys feature and fix your problem.

You might be wondering what is this feature all about, so here goes:

StickyKeys is an accessibility feature to aid users who have physical disabilities, but it is also used by others as a means to reduce RSI (or a syndrome called the Emacs Pinky). It essentially serializes keystrokes instead of pressing multiple keys at a time: StickyKeys allows the user to press a modifier key, such as Shift, Ctrl, Alt, or the Windows key, and have it remain active until another key is pressed.

My shift key is not working properly in my Keyboarding online class. It gives me an error everytime I try to key in a capital letter. i have changed keyboards and it still does the same thing.


When you say it gives you an error, do you mean an actual error message, or the lower-case letter?

I have no idea what your experience is, so I'm asking if you know the difference between the Caps Lock key and the Shift key? The Shift key has to be held down while pressing the other key, eg h key to get H.

Pressing the Caps Lock key locks into upper-case, SO YOU GET A LINE LIKE THIS until you press it again.

Use your mouse to shutdown/reboot your computer.

Windows "accessibility" settings ("sticky keys") will be disabled,
and your keyboard will be back to normal.

Keyboard Problem


Holding down the right-side SHIFT key has activated the "Sticky Keys" feature in Windows -- designed for physically-handicapped people who cannot press more than one key at a time.

Access CONTROL PANEL and disable this "Accessibility Option".

You have accidently switch on the Number Lock and turned these keys into a number keypad.
On some model laptops the NumLk can be toggled on and off by holding the Fn key and pressing one of the function that has a keypad symbol or labeled NumLk.
On other laptops such as ThinkPad it is the Shift key + the NumLk/ScsLk key.

Cannot get apostrophes or question marks


I just figured this out. Hold down your left shift key, then press CTRL. It may take a couple of times for it to work, but it will eventually.
