Having problems with your Dell Latitude E6500 Laptop ?

I have a Dell Latitude E6500 and I think it has numerous shortcut keys that I did not define. Thus it zooms in on documents when I don't want it to, creates new documents when I do not want it to, will launch the search button when not wanted and I have even managed to find a combination of keys which I unknowingly combine fairly often which sends an email mid-composition! I don't want shortcut keys enabled or, if I do, I want to define it myself. Please tell me how to turn this function off.


Answers :

Most programmes utilise keyboard shortcuts.
It says which key combinations will perform which command next to the options on the drop down menus when you click on file, edit, view, etc.
These shortcuts usually a letter key in combination with ctrl key, alt key , sometimes ctrl+shift.
Possibly you are pressing the ctrl key at same time when you press the shift key?
