I came back hear to proudly say "never mind", that the fix was in the Intel driver options hotkeys disable. I just tested a whole slew of games..But I say you-all posted the fix before I could..
Honestly, I used to work tech support... and this one totally escaped me until you-all mentioned the video driver *yeah, thought I had tried it all but, it was not until I went back into Intel's video Options I found the Hot Keys toggle for my first time. shesh... After a year of putting up with that pain.
WAHOO! FIXED! After months of googling. I have not read the link yet, but I will now.
