hi, sorry for poor english.
I tried many foruns, without results.

lately, when I use the crtl+spacebar combination in windows explorer, the cursor moves to search box (see problem.png, its similar to use crtl + E combination)

I use a lot the combination ctrl and spacebar to select separate files, keep the crtl key down and using the arrow keys. so I keep ctrl pressed and navigate to the file I want to select and press the space bar to this.

But something changed in the micro and do not know what it is.

I would like to know what happened and how to disengage it, to return to be able to select files not contiguous using only the keyboard

I added a video, showing the problem (.zip file)
