Have to type single/double quotes twice
I checked settings in my laptop and found that the keyboard language is set to English (United States) - US already.
What's wrong... Please write below.
I have a Windows 7 operating system, and I am using a Logtech wireless mouse. Everything was working fine for like a year or more. Then a month ago, I was single clicking like I usually do then all of a sudden my mouse started to double click things.
Now this problem has gotten on my nerves. Every time I use the mouse it rarely single clicks. Plus, my computer does a double post I don't know if it is b/c of the mouse or my computer.
And when I use a word document, I try to select a paragraph in my essay but my computer either moves part of my sentence or it highlights the first and 3rd line of my paragraph. Then, when I try to save the document by clicking the office button, the whole documents closes (I think that happened b/c my computer did a double click on the office button).
The weirdest part is that when I look at Youtube videos and I right click a video to place it in a new window the box appears over the second video link.
I just click the new window option. Then all of a sudden the window I am viewing is loading the second video. (by the way the first video did load in the new window)
When I try to insert the closing quotes they often do not appear in the right place.
Also, if I type, for example the letter a in brackets it automatically changes to an emoticon.
I tried changing the keyboard from US-International to United Kingdom,
If I click a folder or file it may double click. If I try to drag a folder somewhere it will not do anything and require me to do it again or open the folder. Clicks don't actually click.
Renaming files by double clicking from a single click. Highlight field/box takes up to 3 times to actually appear. Selecting more than one file and deselecting only selects the far right selection.
Things I have tried:
Uninstalling and Updating the Mouse drivers from both Safe Mode and Normal Mode. Going to Control Panel and then Mouse looking at the settings. Plugging the mouse in a different USB Port
Going to the Folder Options and resettings any modified mouse settings. Things I am going to try.
Use a different mouse
Full Scan with Malwarebytes and MSE.
I did download a new cursor set, but it wasn't from a terrible site like cursormania but actually deviantart, so I don't think that was bad. I also did change my Dead Space Mouse Settings, but since that isn't even open (or though Processes on Task Manager), I don't know how that could have affected it.
I am suddenly unable to open any of my Libraries or main file folders in Windows 7. When I double click on ANY Windows folder on any Drive (C:, D:, E, I get the above message ("This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action", etc.).
I ran a full Norton Internet Security virus scan and it came up totally clean. I can access individual files and run programs once I have single clicked on the folder, but double clicking the folders themselves brings up the error message.
First I thought it was just a problem with the Logitech G700 gaming mouse I have but then I try to switch to another mouse an the exact same problem persisted.
When I click left mouse button I almost always get double click command. And dragging is almost impossible, when drag selecting texts or url's on notepad , although the mouse button is fully clicked in , the process gets interrupted.
Like I said I get this now when trying out another mouse , so this most definitely excludes the G700 to be faulty. It started to happen when I changed my system , and am now using a new board ASUS p8p67 with i2500K , and 4 gig RAM.
Mouse mouses are wireless , and the g700 is 2.4ghz and the other mouse is a little less specs I believe .
After I connect to remote desktop, edit codes in visual studio, when I double click to select a word or some files, it auto inputs a "c". I also find this issue in my colleague's computer. He uses VNC and also gets a "c" when double click in remote Linux Elipse under VNC.
I am trying to install Windows 7 on a laptop that I just put a new drive in, and the activation fails. I get the error "the product key is invalid, please re-type the product key"
The key is right. I have double and triple checked. Is it seeing the new drive as a new computer and think the product code is used up?
I am getting the error invalid parameter with Robocopy. An earlier Vista post said to use double quotes for directory names with spaces which I am doing. Here is the example cmd command: Robocopy "C:\Users\My Name\My Documents\" "K:\My Documents Home 050110\" /MT:120/E/XO Started : Sat May 01 13:05:20 2010
Source - C:\Users\Jim Langendonk\My Documents" K:\My
Dest - C:\Windows\system32\Documents\
Files : Home
Options : /COPY:DAT /R:1000000 /W:30
As you can see, lots of errors here from not recognizing the destination, files not defaulting to *.*, and not recognizing the options. I used to use XCOPY on XP but XCOPY is not working on this new Windows 7 machine either.
