Word in advance: If I have things mispeled, I'm sory. Not realy my fault at the moment.
A moment ago I had my laptop on the bed, stretched out. My leg was aparently on the keyboard. When I loked up, I saw a brief mesage on the scren. However, al I saw was 'filter' before the mesage left. Since, every key makes a ping-like sound, and I can't pres any key in rapid sucesion (hence, al the mispelings). I have to wait several seconds before presing the key again. Its for al keys, leters, symbols, enter, backspace.
Searching Gogle didn't help much, I'm not sure I'm entering a corect description. Any idea of what I did and how to fix it? Its very anoying.
What operating system are you running?
Windows, sory I forgot to mention that
Yes, which version.
*digs* I am completely technological iliterate >.>
Windows 7 I believe. 99% sure
If it is 7 then this should work: Click Start > Control Panel > click "Ease of Access" > click "Change how your keyboard works" > uncheck the box next to "Turn on Filter Keys".
If you don't have the "ease of access" option, it's not Windows 7
It worked, thank you No more annoying pinging!
You should be able to also get to the ease of access center if you hold down Shift, Control or Alt for an extended period of time. ( More then 8 seconds If memory serves me right to get it to pop up ) If it doesn't pop up, it may be because you have that option turned off. I sometimes hesitate when I am typing so I may end up holding shift for awhile. It's annoying to have the filter turned on.
Happy to help.
Namane: That's probably how it turned on, my leg was holding down either the control or alt button ^^' I turned both features off, so hopefully we're all good.
