  • I've never seen anything like that before either.  My first thought would have been to try another keyboard as well.

    Perhaps there is some software running that is reserving that G key for something?  I know Windows+G shows the gadgets.


    How long as it been an issue?  Any changes that you know of around the time it began?

  • Hi,


    Due to this issue is not related to your keyboard, I suggest you try to check the software conflicts, boot into Safe Mode to check the result:


    Start your computer in safe mode


    If this issue does not occur in Safe Mode, try to perform a Clean Boot to determine the root cause:

    Hope it helps.
