I am working on a laptop. It is acting as if the shift key is stuck. It will type in all caps with the caps lock off. Lower caps when caps lock is on. If you push the . key it puts the > instead. Clicking on icons or files selects multiple items. I have looked at Sticky keys in the Accessibility Options and it looks to be off. :tazz:
