Windows 10: Annoying popup menu

    Annoying popup menu

    Recently I have been getting an Windows 10 popup menu (see attached file) that comes up randomly and I have no idea how to turn it off. What is really annoying is when I am typing in Word or an email and it pops up, if I hit the corresponding letter that service opens up. Any ideas on how to turn this off?

    I don't have an answer for you, but just to let you know that the screenshot you posted is what you will get when you Right click at the Start button on the extreme left side of the taskbar.
    Do you have any hotkey that will initiate right click at Start button ?

    It's the Windows Key + X that brings that up

    But it comes up when I am watching a video or reading and not touching the keyboard at all.

    Suggestions only :
    1. You said " Recently......".
    If so, do a system restore. Pick a date when you did not have this auto popup as your restore point.

    2. Run a system file check for corrupt files.
    Enter sfc /scannow in Command Prompt (Admin)

    Well, I did both and I'm still having the same problem but I have figured out it is more of a hardware problem. In the attached image on the top right there are three buttons above the keyboard and I have found if I adjust the screen or if it moves just a little bit, the button the the left (with the two gears) lights up and the menu pops up. Is there a way to disable these buttons as I never use them?

    So I think when I'm reading or watching video, my desk shakes enough to move the screen enough to turn on the button light and get the popup menu
