I imagine I'm hitting some serious of hotkeys but on rare occasions, my Mac will start handling keyboard AND mouse clicks in an odd way.
This just happened and, all of a sudden, here are some of the oddities that were happening.
- Whether caps lock was on or off (as indicated on my keyboard by the light), ALL TEXT WAS IN CAPS.
- In parallels, if I clicked on some text and moved my mouse, the text would highlight as I moved my mouse, as if I were holding down the mouse button. I wasn't.
- In Chrome (in macOS, not my parallels OS) clicking on a link would open a new tab.
There were some other odd behaviors but I didn't catch them all. I was able to restart the machine from the macOS menu and, thankfully, this turned off whatever mode was turned on.
So, any idea what happened and how to cancel next time? I have a hunch that this is an accessibility feature, but I have no idea what that would be much less how to turn it off.
(Just in case these details are required, I have a 2017 MBP, and I'm on the most up-to-date version of macOS High Sierra.)
