I tried googling this but haven’t had much success finding an answer. I’m using Windows Vista x64 and have a Microsoft Natural Keyboard connected via the PS/2 port.
About a week ago, my computer started doing this thing where if I’m in explorer and I press the left shift key (the right shift key works fine), instead of capitalizing the next letter I type, it will go back to the previous folder I had open, or have the effect of if I was pressing ALT+LEFT. This makes it extremely difficult to make new folders, as I have to remember to only use the right shift key. The funny thing is, this is ONLY happening in explorer windows, so I know that it isn’t a stuck key. This also doesn’t start happening immediately after rebooting, but will start happening again within an hour or so, leading me to believe it has to be a software issue. Has anyone ever heard of this before, or know how to fix it?
