How come my computer running Windows 7 sometimes opens files when I press keys on the keyboard?

by on February 6, 2013

Q: I have Windows 7 Home Premium. Sometimes while on the computer, suddenly my laptop keyboard doesn’t respond properly. When you type a letter, you may open a file, a new window or who knows. I have tried to refresh, but always end up closing out Firefox and re-starting computer. Any ideas??

    Next time this happens try to hit the “Windows” key a couple of times, I’ve seen this before where for some reason the windows key is stuck on and when you hit for instance the letter “e” it opens explorer. After you open/close the windows menu/start menu a couple of times with the key try to type and see if you still run into the issue. Let me know how you end up making out.
