I have tried googling this and no one else seems to either have this problem, or find it to be a problem, but it is very annoying to me. Everytime I accidentally hit my ctrl key by itself on my keyboard (I am using windows 7) my volume automatically lowers to a very low volume and then I can't hear anything. It's very annoying whenever I am on a game and/or on skype and I accidentally hit ctrl and then I can't hear anything or anyone!! How can I turn this feature off?
I've tried purposely hitting the ctrl key by itself, and it still reduced the volume. I've bought a new keyboard since then, and it still does it. It also happened on my old computer (which had windows 7 as well) and they are both HP computers. It happens for both the left and right ctrl keys.
