I have been experiencing some problems with inputing from the keyboard directly into Opera. I can copy and paste ok, but anything I type in is getting letters and numbers swapped or keys stop working. This topic's title is an example of what is happening.
The only thing I can think of is that there is some sort of driver mis-match between the browser, Windows 10 and this laptop. The laptop is a European model Toshiba Tecra, Windows is the 17763.615 build, and Opera is 62.0.3331.99.
I dug deeper into the drivers:
c:\windows\system32\drivers\i8042prt.sys (10.0.17763.1, 108.00 KB (110,592 bytes), 2018-09-15 2:28 AM)
This is the only app on the laptop with which I have experienced this problem. The OS works as well as Windows can be expected to do, and I use it primarily for work.
I run AV scans daily, have a reliable malware hunter app and don't use it for games.
Somehow one of the myriad of updates between Opera and the OS, something got broken. I have two desktops running the same OS build and Opera version and have not had any problems. Or at least I don't think I have. Hard to tell when you don't use a bbowseb for a print server or game platform.
Anyone got any constructive suggestions?
