Since a few months, I've noticed that my hash key (#) was really slow. I'm using an AZERTY keyboard since I'm from France, and I'm using Windows 10 latest stable build. Filter keys and all accessibility options are disabled.

I have absolutely no idea about what is causing this, I'm using a Logitech G105 Refresh and it's always been working fine.

Thank you in advance!

  • Is it slow in Notepad? Or just sites where the pound key is frequently used to do something like link to relevant posts? – Austin T French Sep 3 '17 at 19:36
  • @AthomSfere It was slow basically everywhere. I noticed it when I was using Zanata (a translation website), because I had to type quite a few of them (Markdown). – Piorrro33 Sep 5 '17 at 4:43

Okay, actually the issue seems to be caused by ASUS GPU Tweak.

It considers that the key combo Alt gr. + # is the same as Ctrl + Alt + 3, which is true.

So you have two options to fix this issue:

1) You disable the hotkeys in GPU Tweak, but that will cause the key to not be able to be used multiple times in a row.


2) You stop using GPU Tweak and your keyboard goes back to normal.
