Today, I was commenting on a hub, and my fingers slipped. I don't know what key or key combination I hit, but afterwards, every single letter "f" all the way through the hub and all the comments (my unfinished one included) appeared highlighted in yellow.
Any ideas what I might have accidentally hit to cause that? (It did not seem to interfere with anything--it was just kind of a funny thing to have happen.)
I do that kind of thing a lot. As long as it isn't affecting anything I'm trying to do, I just ignore it. If you're like me and turn off your computer when you're not using it, the next time you turn it on everything will be normal again.
Somebody else can correct me if I'm wrong, but if you press the CNTRL+F key combination, the search window appears in Chrome in the top right of your screen, and the bottom left in FF. To remove it, just click on the 'x' as you would to close any other window. When you remove it, the highlighting disappears.
This search window is very useful, by the way, since it allows you to seek out certain words and phrases on a page.
I bet you're right. Using the 'find' tool, especially if you accidentally hit the 'f', first with a control+f to bring up the find tool, then 'f' again to place an 'f' in the find bar would highlight all the f's on the screen. That's the most likely scenario I can think of.
That will happen if you drop even something tiny on the keyboard or are leaning on a key. It's hardly perceptible and you wonder, "What the heck is happening here?" Then it disappears and you don't know why, unless like in my situation, I get a revelation from on high. I wish I could remember the various circumstances that caused that, but I do so many goofy things during the day, I can't keep track of all causational factors (tee hee).
Yeah...could be I can blame one of the cats for jumping in my lap at an inopportune time.... Or maybe, I need to take the thing out to the shop and blast it out with 120 psi of compressed air.... Those "canned air" aerosols just don't seem to cut it....
It's interesting how all these things put in to help us usually end up getting in the way. My partner has had a problem with her laptop. She will be typing something and the screen will suddenly get larger for no apparent reason.
The only thing we can think of is it is something to do with the mouse pad. There is a tiny little button in the top left corner and when pressed it then acts like a touch screen and magnifies the screen. I have the same thing on mine but hers seems much more sensitive.
Oh, the hours of endless fun we have had trying to resolve this issue instead of getting on with what we actually wanted to do.
