The problem with the letters Y and Z

The problem with the letters Y and Z.

I think, that has probably happened to most of us, that at some point the keyboard “she went crazy”, and the symptom was, for example, displaying the letter "Z" when pressing the "Y" key and vice versa, or mixing other letters and characters.

Means, that keyboard (due… accidentally pressing certain keys) switched in mode QWERTZ from default mode (desired), That is QWERTY. Some at this point ... reset the computer. Others reset the process explorer.exe and restart it.

Generally, both mentioned quite radical methods are in a sense correct because they lead to the disappearance of the problem - as they say, the end justifies the means. However, mentioned problem with the letters Y and Z is not a consequence of problems with the operating system, keyboard or software we use. The problem is trivial and depends on two keys - CTRL i SHIFT (whether right or not, or left versions).


If you encounter the problem described here, do not restart your computer, do not disable processes or programs, don't format the drive either. Simply press the keys at the same time CTRL i SHIFT and the problem will be solved !!!
