Oncreen Keyboard randomly starts using "hot keys" or "shortcuts". Please help (Yoga 2 Pro)

2014-04-06, 1:43 AM

This issue usually begins when I'm using the on screen keyboard.  Everything works perfectly fine and all of the sudden some of the letters on the keyboard will start defaulting to shortcuts.  For example, the "p" button will try to open a screen to allow me to set different displays or monitors.

 

Whenever I do a restart, the problem is resolved, however, it eventually will come back to haunt me.  I would like a permanent fix to this issue.  I've read some other posts about keyboard issues but none of them seem to work for me.

 

This problem sometimes won't allow me to enter my password for screen unlock because one of the letters in my password just happen to be a "shortcut" or a "hot key" for a random windows setting.

 

Please help me Lenovo!  I just purchased my Yoga 2 Pro a week ago!

I would actually prefer to completely disable ANY hot key or shortcut feature.  I highly doubt I will EVER use these pointless keyboard features.  They are just a nuisance at this point

Sounds to me like the windows key is getting stuck. Try using the onscreen keyboard without the windows key to see if it remediates the issue. If so, we can work from there.
