Steps to reproduce

When I open Windows edge and click the key ‘A’ or ‘E’ or ‘1’ or ‘2’ on my keyboard , it opens a large amount of new tabs in quick succession and even after closing the browser, it pops up again and again until my system crashes.

The page that opens is of Microsoft Edge Help page.

System reset couldn’t help me either.

Thanks for the help.

    • Hi!

      Thank you for contacting us about this issue! Is it possible that this is a hardware issue? Could you please try this with a different keyboard in another port and see if the issue is still there. 

      Have you tried a repair on Microsoft Edge?

      Could you provide me with your version of Microsoft Edge?
