How can I know what app/software is launching a Virtual key?

u7ername 1 Reputation point

My Right Click Menu (Context Menu) keeps randomly popping up in my Windows 10. Even if I don't do anything. I have tried all possible solutions. Nothing helps. It starts right after installing windows10.

With mskey.exe I have been able to see that this is the key that is activated:

Key: Application (make) - 0x5D

I've read online that it's a Virtual key VK_APPS (context menu). How can I know what app/software is launching this key?

    The random pop up of right click context menu is associated with corrupted touchpad driver.

    Also run sfc /scannow after opening Command Prompt window as Admin.

    Hi ,

    It may be happening because of your Mouse hardware which is having Right click circuit click or flickering connection with right click else it can be due to the Processor of system like if it's designed to support 32 bit and you've installed higher then to Bug 0x5D get triggered by itself in a loop.

    I would recommend to check more information here :-
