    Greetings,
    Somehow, I disabled my left shift key.
    the right shift still works.
    I do not know how I did this - but I need to put it back...

    Thanks!!!
    Jay

  2. Hi Jay,

    My guess is that your keyboard needs cleaning or replacing. To rule out a hardware
    problem, try using a different keyboard and see if the Left Shift Key works on it.

    For future reference you might want to take a look at the Accessability
    Options for keyboards. These are the options used to modify how input
    and output is handled for those people who deal with physical disabilities.

    Start>> Settings>> Control Panel>> Accessibility Options>> Keyboard Tab
