how do i disable all windows 7 shortcuts?

Posted on


No matter what program I’m in, word, the internet, outlook, etc., I’m getting popup windows (print, new window, etc.) or edits just by hitting a key. I’m fairly certain I’m not hitting control or alt first but they constantly popup. I’ve never had a keyboard do this before. I actually took a computer back because it was doing that and now the second computer does the same thing.

How do I turn off all shortcut keys in Windows 7 so this doesn’t happen?


My guess is that your keyboard is faulty and/or a key is stuck.

It’s possible that you have Sticky Keys enabled. To disable Sticky Keys:

  • Click Start.
  • Select Control Panel
  • Click the Ease of Access heading.
  • Click “Change how your keyboard works”
  • Remove the check mark from the box next to “Turn on Sticky Keys” (if it’s checked).
