Interesting keyboard binding question for you: One of my users has a laptop. When he presses either the 'q' or 'w' key, an 'e' is added to the end of them. For example: q = qe , w = we This only occurs with those two keys though...I've checked the mapping, everything looks normal. I thought it was perhaps a function key combination that he enabled somehow, but I can't find the switch to turn it off. Thanks, Lordhowe

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Tell the user to stop drinking coffee while the laptop is in their lap.

The button “e” is probably have one of it’s clippings underneath those letters indicating the button at one time fell off and the user put it back on. I would remove it and reset it properly.

‘e’ is next to q and w. Very likely something is being shorted. Either you can take the keyboard apart and try to fix it, or replace the keyboard.
