Double Click ESC on text box clears the complete web page RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Team,

    When I double clicked ESC on any of the editable text boxes, it clears the complete web page. It happens only IE only.

    Is it IE issue? Any workaround to resolve the  same?

    Thanks, Neel.

    Kind Regards, Neel.

  • Hi Neel,


    I want to confirm that which version of OS and IE have you used?


    First we may try to enable on-screen keyboard and check if the problem related to the ESC key.


    Type without using the keyboard (On-Screen Keyboard):



    You mentioned the problem only occurred in IE, have you tried no add-ons mode? If not, please try it.


    Troubleshooting and Internet Explorer’s (No Add-ons) Mode:


    If the problem still persists, we need to try SFC to repair missing or corrupted system files.



    Best Regards,

  • Hi Tao, 

    Sorry for the delayed response. 

    I did try both the On-Screen Keyboard as well as IE (No Add-on mode) and the issue persists. 

    I will try for SFC for repairing the IE. Will update once done. 

    Thanks for your support. 


    Kind Regards, Neel.

  • double clicked ESC

    Sounds ambiguous, especially when you include the OSK into the symptom description.  E.g. is it Double-click and then press Esc?  Double-click where to do what?  Esc before whatever that response should be?  That would be the equivalent of clicking on the Enter/Stop/Refresh button which is overloaded but only rarely in its Stop state, so therefore you are talking about a race case.  E.g. did you do the Esc (Stop) before the button turned into the Refresh icon?  Then maybe it would Stop whatever response your double-click was supposed to return; otherwise as you see you may get a Refresh.  Working as designed I suspect.  Try pressing Alt-V p instead.
