All of a sudden my win10/office2016 box is doing weird things with the alt key in Outlook.

I typically get an email ready to go and then hit ALT-S to send.

I thought maybe it was a fluke, but still happening this morning - if I have a draft open in the preview pane, ALT-S changes me over to the send/receive menu instead of sending the draft.  If I pop the draft out, ALT-S does nothing.

Any idea?  It's happening on both my local machine (win10 pro) and my hyper-v guest workstation (win10 enterprise).  Office 2016 volume license in both cases.

Have you tried the alt key on the right side of the keyboard?  I tend to use the alt key on the left side. Will the alt tab combo change which window is in the foreground?

Thanks guys :-)

I changed the batteries and that seemed to help at first, but it was still happening... so I took the keyboard and flexed it a lot and I think it's finally resolved.  It must have somehow gotten bent on my recent trip or something...  It was driving me nuts!

I would have suggested a hammer, but you fixed it.
