Re: bug: when unchecking the keys not to use as modifiers, they become rechecked upon restarting nvda.

No not at all, follow my steps  and you hopefully can repro. Basically, uncheck insert or what ever modifiers you don’t want to use. Restart nvda and those boxes will become checked. Make sure save config upon exit is  checked.

I don't know if this is somehow related to what happened last evening,on my Hp Pavillion Windows10 Laptop which is a bit over 4 years old: So I powered on my Laptop just fine; I was able to use NVDA commands via the Caps-lock key just fine without issues, but about 5-10 minutes later, not only the NVDA command key didn't work, but the Tab, Escape or the Number1 key on the top number row! So I restarted the computer, and the above-mentioned keys worked great for about 5-10 minutes, after which no go! not even restarting NVDA! So I restarted the computer a 2nd time, and used it over an hour without issues! with all the expected keys working just fine!

So might this be related to what you're talking about in this thread?

Can anyone reproduce this?

 

Bug

When nvda is restarted, the use insert key option becomes rechecked even after the user unchecks it.

Steps

1.       Launch nvda

2.       Go to settings

3.       Go to keyboard

4.       Choose laptop (not sure if desktop will work the same

5.       Uncheck insert under the section where it lists 4 check boxes for nvda modifiers.

6.       Hit ok

7.       Restart nvda

 

Expected

Nvda should not recheck the box for the keys you unchecked

Actual

The box becomes rechecked upon restarting nvda
