Re: Clipspeak Interfering with Modifier Keys After Selecting Material from Clipboard to Copy

When something like this happens to me where it appears as though my control key was being held down I just press the right control key once or twice followed by doing the same with my left control key. Hopefully, that will help if that’s what is happening with this user.

Hi,

Possible culprit: Control key getting stuck when pasting data via clipboard history. After selecting an item to be pasted, Windows presses Control+V on its own. This may or may not be the case in Windows 11 as you can press Enter from Windows 11 clipboard history to paste items (the overall UI of clipboard history has changed significantly between Windows 10 and 11).

Cheers,

Joseph
