    Since today, I need to press the Windows-logo 2 times on my keyboard, to open the Start-menu. and damn that is annoying
    Does anyone how to fix it, I looked through the Windows Keyboard settings, but I did not anything about it.
    This does did only happen to the Windows-Logo. CTRL, ESC, ALT, etc, are functioning normally.

    This is not a driver-issue since I have this problem on both my Desktop and Laptop (and no, I do not use the same keyboard for that)

    It must be a setting issue because of that, since the setting got synced through my Windows devices.

    Thanks a lot.

    Nope, nothing. I don't install any weird software.
    After doing some more investigation, my CTRL is also messed up...
    Can't confirm anything for any other function keys at this moment... o_O

    After doing some testing, I think that I have problems with Shift, CTRL, Windows-logo and ALT.
    But I am not 100% sure about Shift, CTRL and ALT.
    Edit: Added my software list:
    This list is not needed anymore.
    More testing: It seems like Windows does 'toggle' the key until I press another key or click using my mouse.

    No big deal. :D
    The interesting part is to know how Sticky keys function was activated unaware.
