    For the last few days my Control + Shift will not pick up Gold or pull LifeBars. Is this a lag issue or can I alter my settings to get it working properly again.

    Thank you, in advance, for the help.

    *bump, hoping for advice*

    Is it my connection. How do you check your "ping"?

    But you do get the handle bars when pressing ctrl+shift? You just can't drag anything from those bars?
    If you don't get any handle bars at all, I would suspect some other program which occupies / prevents UO from getting this keyboard input.

    I do get the Bars, I just can't drag them. And the lag increase as I do it now/

    Should I change my Appearance Settings maybe?

    Thank you Lord Obsidian

    Check to see that "Pointer Speed" is not turned on under the Control Panel?
    Control Panel / Ease of Access Center / Make the keyboard easier to use / Set up Mouse Keys / (Pointer Speed section ) / [uncheck] "Hold down CTRL to speed up and SHIFT to slow down" ?

    Thank you, Fogsbane! I will give that a shot.

    And yuck. That didn't work either. I am not sure what changed last week. This is kind of frustrating, hehe. Of course, it doesn't help that I know so little about computers.

    *sighs*

    Freeze (lag) in mouse movement when using mouse button + CTRL or SHIFT?

    Have you installed any new software onto your computer lately? Make sure all your windows update are done and also make sure all your drivers are updated? Are you using a wireless mouse? Some you can change the frequency on or maybe install some new batteries.


    I know it seems a stretch lol but it might help.
    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
