for some reason when i press the shift key on my laptop keyboard is mapped to 'ctrl+v' which does a paste. i thought it was the keyboard but then i replaced it with a wireless one,it still gives me the same issue. can someone help me. i cant just turn off the shift key all together because i do need it at times. model 8510w; vista operating system
Maybe you enabled input assistance tools like sticky keys? Go to system settings, then keyboard, and try disabling some or all of them. While you are there, check if you enabled layout switching and the right keyboard layout is still enabled.
