What key on the keyboard do you hate most?

Recommended Posts

Which key on your computer's keyboard pisses you off and gets in your way the most?

For me, I would have to say the up arrow. It's located just below the right Shift key, and sometimes when I try to use the Shift key while I'm typing, I hit the stupid up arrow by accident and it deletes an entire row of text. It's so fucking annoying! :lostit:

I really need to get around to permanently disabling that little piece of shit. Other keys I could do without are Caps Lock, Insert and F12.

For me, it may just be ' or ] or \

I accidentally hit these sometimes when I press enter to send messages over discord. It's a bit annoying with that.

My keyboard has extra keys on the side, and I can see them being useful if I remember they exist, but they're mostly annoying.. especially when I'm trying to put my feet up and hit them by accident. The keys are, skip video, mute audio, open Groove Music, and open Microsoft Edge. Almost as annoying as the buttons on my mouse, except they have a much better quality of life, prev and next page.

The award for the most trivial topic goes to...

I say backspace, since that broke off and now it is just the rubber nub.

For me, it’s the Start button. When playing games, especially old ones, it can completely mess up your gameplay: loose a race, get killed, alter the display and crash your game completely. Luckily I can disable it.

Shift. I can't for the life of me use it without prompting that stupid "sticky key" shit and fucking up my games!

The "Insert" key, because it turns on over-type in Microsoft Word.

Numpad for sure, cuz I own a few games with controls locked to those keys, and my current keyboard doesn't have a numpad :okiedokieloki:

Woe is me for trying to save a few bucks on a mechanical keyboard and buying one that's proven to be otherwise decent so will prolly outlast lil me and my numpad need :laugh:

Insert. The accursed, sneaky insert. It loves to turn on randomly without you even remembering having touched it and tons of your text just disappears without you sometimes realizing it.

Caps lock.

I'm trying to type something. Go for the letter A. And then half my sentence is all caps. Then I half to delete the whole thing and start all over again.

Aside from the obviously irritating Shift and Insert, I gotta go with "/" and "alt". I hate accidentally typing slashes instead of periods and how the alt key keeps bringing up stuff on my tab that I don't want to see.

Num Lock, I accidentally press this button quite often and then when I want to type numbers it does some weird things. (I usually type numbers with my num pad)

On my laptop, the key I hate the most is the Number Lock key. I keep on accidentally hitting it due to it being positioned right next to the Backspace key resulting in some inconvenient shenanigans to ensue.

N and D, because my keyboard won't recognize when I press these keys sometimes and it's so annoying. Might have to clean it or something. I also hate the [ and ] keys, because on nordic keyboard layouts you have to press Alt gr to use them, and the Adobe programs require you to press these keys for certain shortcuts.. but pressing altgr at the same time causes them to not work.. so I have to change the shortcuts.

On my laptop, the Fn key which switches my Function keys from adjusting brightness/sound back to performing their normal functions, and then back again.

I keep forgetting to press it so I usually seem to have it turned on when I want it turned off, and turned off when I want it turned on :wacko:

My laptop has a Delete key, right next to the Backspace key. It's an extremely frustrating endeavour when I accidentally press the Delete key, when I actually intended on pressing the Backspace key.

Caps Lock. I always hit it when using the Shift button and I have to retype everything it messes up. I'm not thrilled with the Insert button or Home, neither of which really have any useful purpose anyway.

The one where I accidentally pried off the key and now there's just a nub where the J should be.

The Capock key and that little nipple mouse aren’t my most liked keys. Caps lock is kinda redundant when you have the shift key.

No matter what keyboard i use, the spacebar always triggers me. I like that its the only long key on the keyboard, but its always made flimsily. Whenever i press it, the space bar jiggles and bends because keyboard makers always put only one or two support pads for the key, which does not work in my book.
