Re: Modifiers stuck, none of the posted solutions work

OK, I'll make sure there are no other uses like this and see if that fixes it (that "LWin & LButton" code originally came from some forum post or example posted somewhere).

Re: Modifiers stuck, none of the posted solutions work

I have a suspicion that this might be causing problems:

Code: Select all

LWin & LButton::
WinGetTitle, Title, A

Re: Modifiers stuck, none of the posted solutions work

Thanks for the suggestions. This occurs on several different keyboards and even across multiple laptops/new installs of Windows, so it can't be a hardware issue.

Quicken is the most common culprit when updating accounts. It's terribly written software. Other common scenarios are virus signature updates/scans. The stuck key phenomenon is most reproducible in those situations but it also occurs occasionally under more normal use conditions when CPU usage is no...

Re: Modifiers stuck, none of the posted solutions work

I still have this problem on a daily basis. I've tried the solutions above -- having a KeyWait for each macro; a ReleaseModifiers() script for each macro; and different #MenuMaskKey settings including vk07; and none of them fully solve the problem of a modifier getting stuck down. It seems to be mos...

Modifiers stuck, none of the posted solutions work

There are many threads in this and earlier iterations of this forum reporting variations on a "modifiers stuck" problem--i.e. LWIN, ALT, CTRL, etc, appear to be stuck down after an AHK macro is run when they are not. There are various posted solutions/workarounds, but none of them work for me, nor, ...
