everytime i press the control button a new google chrome tab appears AND THE VOLUME GOES DOWN TO 0. regardless what is on the screen, whether i am on the desktop or am using any software and chrome isnt open, i press the control button and a chrome tab appears. even if i am on a site and i press control to copy, i am not able to because from that site i straight away am led to a fresh chrome page. i need help as i am not able to figure out how to stop this. i also changed the chrome settings to default and went through the control panel of the computer but couldnt find anything useful...

Hi Devam, 
 
Did you already try to reboot your computer?

I have this same problem. Everytime I press the control button a new tab opens, my volume doesn't lower, but a new tab appears. I've already tried rebooting it. I even took off both the control keys and the t key in case they were stuck. It still makes a new tab appear everytime I press the control button

Hi Audrey,
 
We can skip that question then ;) Can you unplug your keyboard and plug it into another USB-port? If you're using a laptop, try to find an external keyboard to see if that produces the same issue.
 
If it doesn't help, can you tell me if a re-install of Chrome helps?

On my Chromebook that are 2 ctrl buttons, when I hit the one in the left it will open up a new tab in Chrome automatically. Even when I'm just trying to to ctrl+c or ctrl+v
