You are right, I was experiencing errors in Visual Studio. Do not disable Application Experience!!

I believe Explorer crashed and now a reboot no longer switches it back. Keytweak doesn't see it as switched and Hotkey Explorer fails to start with an error Google has never heard of. ("Hotkey Explorer init failed! (-7)")

I spent the past days trying to figure it out using Process Monitor with no luck. I'm considering just buying new keyboards until the next version of Windows comes out.

Just noticed this when I press the Winkey (simplified here to be more readable): "Explorer.EXE RegOpenKey HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer‌​\AppKey\6 NAME NOT FOUND Desired Access: Query Value" Result is "NOT FOUND", apparently

Okay, I woke up to find the keys switched, so the first thing I did was run KeyTweak, but it shows there was no remapping in the registry. Then I started Process Monitor and will leave it running until it switches back so I can look. I don't know what to look for though.

I downloaded Keytweak, and as soon as Winkey stops working, I'll run it and see if it's detected there. I'll let you know asap.

I thought about trying hijackthis, but since the Winkey changes behavior randomly (it's not upon OS load, it's really random from what I can tell), I thought it'd be too difficult to find the application changing it. But I will do it, either way.

I'll check for the BIOS message, but I'm pretty sure I'm not switching between layouts (I've got the language bar always showing, so I'd know). Just left the computer for 5 minutes, and when I came back it had changed behavior again.

What can cause keys to be "stuck"? Where can I find more information on stuck keys?

Just tried that program, and it shows as WIN when I press the Winkey. After testing, I rebooted and the Winkey is working again, though I know it's temporary.
