Software :: Shift Key Not Working Fine / Minimizing Windows When Pressed

Sep 26, 2009

I don't know what I've done, but whenever I hit the shift key on my keyboard, all my open windows minimize. Hence I have to use caps lock to type any letters in caps, and can't use the shift key for things like exclamation marks and question marks.

OS X :: White Arrow Showing Up On Desktop / When I Hit The Shift Key

Dec 3, 2009

Everytime I hit the shift key, a white, outlined arrow (with a drop shadow) shows up on the mid-upper right part of the desktop. If I hit shift twice, it stays there... if I hit capslock, nothing.

I looked in universal access, and nothing glared out... a google search didn't turn up anything (right away).can someone quickly clue me in as to what is causing this?

I just found out how can I fine tune OS X's volume key (alt+shift+volume), and I'm wondering is there a way that I can remap it so that I won't have to hold down Alt+Shift each time I change my volume.

MacBook :: Swap Backspace - Shift Keys?

Jul 23, 2009

Suddenly my backspace button has stopped working. Restarting or running Windows XP doesn't help a thing. Is it possible to use the right shift button as a backspace-button, you know changing what the keys do. It's quite irritating not being able to delete stuff. What I'd like: To use my right shift key instead of the backspace.

MacBook :: Shift Keys Change Focus?

Apr 11, 2012

I have a MacBook running OSX10.6. Someone else was using it the other day and now whenever I hit my Shift key, it changes the focus to either the task bar or the other open app(s).

I created a new user account and the Shift key functions properly in the new profile. where else to look to restore the normal behavior?

Last night a friend of mine spilt a very small amount of soda onto my macbook. I immediately wiped it off and powered down the computer. Today, when I turned the computer back on, everything works fine, however, a few of the keys are sticky (the space bar, arrow keys, shift button, and 2 others). Is there anyway to remove these keys to try to clean them? This is the current generation Macbook.

MacBook Pro :: External Keyboard Shift Not Working?

Sep 1, 2014

I'm using a MacBook Pro 13" Mid 2012 (no Retina) with an external keyboard (Apple A1243 USB). I was using Mountain Lion.

One month ago I was suffering a problem that both shift keys of my external keyboard were not working properly. Only if I press both shift keys simultaneously they worked. But, also other keys were activated (e.g. "e" and "r" or "5" and "6" on the number block). The keyboard works fine on differnet computers.

Only a full system recovery solved the problems, meaning this is a software problem. 

Today, I'm facing the same problem again and don't want to do the recovery again.

I tryed this steps: One or more keys on the keyboard do not respond

I also updated to maverick, without succes. 

Info:
MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.5)

MacBook Pro :: Stuck Booting Up In Windows 7 And Shift Key Is Stuck?

Dec 9, 2014

My Macbook is currently stuck booting up in windows 7. My shift key also appears to be stuck so holding the Option key when booting up to choose a start up disk isn't an option (it doesn't work). I do not currently have access to an external keyboard. I do have the startup disk. I'm wondering if I can use the startup disk to reset the systems startup disk? Are there other options?

MacBook Shift Key Stuck?

Mar 20, 2012

for Christmas I got my moms old macbook. It was some things that were wrong with it but she took it to get fixed at apple for like 500$ so Im sure she doesn't have warranty. The other day I was typing a report and it kept typing in capitals when I didn't have the caps lock on...I figured out that it was something with the shift key. I took it off, and that still didnt work. I haven't spilled anything on it at all. I take very good care of it also. Now I can't en log in because my password has numbers which only turn into symbols.

MacBook :: Right Shift Key Does Not Work

Apr 1, 2012

I purchased a late 2009 13" Macbook with 2.26 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 2 GB ram as a present for my son in college.  He had problems last year and the top case and motherboard were replaced in early 2011; Recently his battery would not hold a charge and his hard drive failed.  I replaced both and added more ram to speed it up -  now at 8 GB)The right shift key does not work.  I have checked universal access; speech-to-text features are off; checked keyboard - English is chosen; checked keyboard, shift key is not assigned to any function;Left shift key does work.  Right shift key does work on an attached Logitech wireless keyboard.  The key seems to press down okay, just will not capitalize any letters.

MacBook :: Shift While Caps Lock On

Nov 6, 2008

if caps lock is off, shift of course makes the letter you hit capital. However, if caps lock is on, and you hit shift, the letter is capital, not lowercase. In Windows it would be lowercase. Is my MacBook acting how is should?

Mac Pro :: Left Shift - W Doesn't Work?

Jan 23, 2009

I can't type a capital w (i.e. "W") by holding down my left shift and the "w" key.

If I hold down the right shift key, it works fine. Lower case w works fine. Any other capital letter using the left shift also works.

So it's only the left shift and "w" combination that seems not to work.

Bizarro world, but VERY frustrating.

I borrowed another apple keyboard and the same thing happens - so it would appear to be a software problem.

OS X :: Snow Leopard - Shift Key Only Capitalizes First Letter

Oct 28, 2009

I'm having the same problem in ALL my typing: when I hold down the shift key for multiple letters, only the first is capitalized; the rest come out lower case. This is not a replacement behavior: I don't see the Uppercase letter get replaced by the lowercase one; only the first is uppercase. Is there some new text replacement routine? Can this be customized? I can't stand having to release the shift key between letters or to have to shift-lock, shift unlock.
