Hi,

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.
QUOTE Thanks

'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.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
