Right after Windows (8.1) starts, I'm able to open folders using the shortcuts I set up in an AHK script, for two to three seconds.
But then, few keys become unresponsive:
- the start button
- the shortcuts that open folders
However, other keys work normally, even inside explorer, such as navigation keys, delete key, Alt+F4 and the like. There is no problem with the mouse either.
Windows seems to remember all the keystrokes I've pressed, because after a few seconds (about 5 to 10), when the keyboard shortcuts start responding again, all the folders (for which I pressed the assigned shortcuts during that 5 or 10 seconds) open up. Since I press the start button 10 to 15 times during that period of unresponsiveness, the start screen opens and closes several times after everything is normal again.
I'm using quite latest version of AHK (v1.1.22.06).
