    About 2 months ago I noticed that pressing the comma key with no modifier - unhides the windows file explorer. If I close all instances of the file explorer it does not launch a new one.

    It doesn't matter which keyboard I use: laptop usb or on-screen.

    I've checked all shortcuts and I don't see any hotkeys enabled. I tried turning off hotkeys in the registry but it didn't help.

    It seems like the explorer itself is processing the comma key and unhiding itself.
    Any suggestions would be appreciated
