    Clicking sound when using CTRL+key or SHIFT+key


    In Windows 8, I am hearing a clicking sound whenever I use either CTRL+key or SHIFT+key

    So, when I'm doing shortcuts, or capitalising letters..... it just makes an annoying clicking sound.

    How do I turn this off?

    OK. Don't worry.

    This occurs when you have the on-screen keyboard switch on.

    If you switch off the on-screen keyboard, it no longer happens.
