    Shift always On

    I have quite an odd matter with my Mac Pro.
    It looks like the Shift Key is always on so everything reacts that way.

    I first thought it was the keyboard, so I cleaned it etc. but it's not ! I tried that keyboard on another mac and it works perfectly.

    The Keyboard Viewer shows that the 2 Shift Keys are ALWAYS turned on even if my keyboard is unplugged !

    I searched quite a bit but I can't find anything like that.
    Please, help me.

    'System Preferences' - 'Universal Access'

    'Keyboard' tab

    turn off 'Sticky Keys'

    and/or uncheck the box 'Press the Shift Key 5 times to turn ...'.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
