Most Annoying Keys On a Keyboard


The Top Ten

1 Caps Lock

I question what the point of the Caps Lock is when there is a Shift Key just underneath it that does the job much quicker. Surely the only reason for the Caps Lock is for ANGER IN TEXT

The Caps Lock key needs to be popped off indefinitely on all keyboards in the world, it's a terrible key.

its the worst key
it kills me why you would even use it it looks odd
when I try to write fast and click (a) caps gets pressed and then my mind blows up

Absolute most useless key

4 Menu

There's a menu key on a keyboard? Unless that is the Windows logo key, then yeah it's annoying because it's like Alt-Tabbing out of a game by complete accident. - NuMetalManiak
