[SOLVED] Every time I press shift (even when typing this title) a song skips on spotify, if i hold shift, it will spam skip songs.

This happens when I use soundcloud too - it just started happening not maybe an hour ago and i have no idea what may be causing it. ive already disabled hardware acceleration in spotify but that does nothing.

have you tried a restart of windows?

Try a clean boot and see if it changes anything - make sure to read instructions and make sure NOT to disable any microsoft services or windows won't load right - https://support.microsoft.com/en-au/help/929135/how-to-perform-a-clean-boot-in-windows

if clean boot fixes it, it shows its likely a startup program. You should, over a number of startups. restart the programs you stopped to isolate the one that is to blame.

it could be an option in one of the programs

only shortcut keys in spotify that use shift are for volume anyway - https://support.spotify.com/us/using_spotify/system_settings/keyboard-shortcuts/

The issue ended up being something hardware related (my keyboard). Thanks for the reply.
