i spilled water on my keyboard>
now< the shift key seems to be permanently pressed (which is why periods come out as ">" and commas come out as "<")> i"m currently typing this in caps lock< to counter_act the shift key

as soon as it happened< i flipped the keyboard upside down< in hopes the water would drain out> i then went to get a towel to wipe the water off of the desk>

i then unplugged the usb from the computer< let the water drip out for a bit< and then plugged it back in> and restarted the computer>

not only are there the problems with the keyboard< but for some reason< whenever i try to scroll with the mouse< it goes to the previous page> however< this is now become impossible< because whenever i click a link< it opens it in a new window< which is getting really annoying>

what do i do?

First off, stop using periods and commas for one thing thats annoying as hell.
it"s a sub_conscious effort: do you think about each period and comma you type? i"m going to assume no>

it would take forever to type things out that way>

it's cos you've got shift on, shift click is new window, shift scroll is forward/back. just buy a new keyboard.
You're using UG classic, congratulations.
You should be using UG classic.

I actually do, that way I'm more inclined to use them correctly.

I just left it upside down for awhile, while I want to drum. I came back, and now it's working fine, although some of the keys feel a little odd.

Shenanigans. I call them.
Wait, you think I made that up? I have one question; why? Do you realize how annoying it would be for me to type out all the posts up to this one like that? What would be the point? Do you think I'm sitting here, giggling, thinking "lulz, they think my keyboard is broken but it isn't"? I honestly just don't see the point.....

Anyways, why does it work now? You would think damage like that would be permanent...

It's because it never happened in the first place and you were lying.

I still fail to see the point. Enlighten me; what would be the point of doing that? I just don't get it. This honestly happened.

I don't know you're the one that did it. So YOU tell ME what the point is. Was it worth it?

If the shift key was stuck down, you'd be typing in all caps. Fail.

Read the OP; I pressed caps lock to counter-act it. Try it; press caps lock, and then hold the shift key, and tell me how it types.

Because shift + scroll wheel = forward / back.

Good question; I wonder what else my keyboard can do that it's never told me......

@xCaMRocKx-: No, press shift while caps lock is on.

Id say buy a new one, but if you cant, put it in a box and cover it with rice for a few days. The rice should absorb a lot of the moisture that you couldnt get out. Idk if it'll fix the keyboard, but at least it'll be dry inside. Worth a shot right?

You know you can just take the keys off and clean them out, probably would've saved you making this silly thread.
