So these days when i press alt f4 the system glitches of sorts and auto types OSOSOSOSO if terminal is open,
probably input from my keyboard but if terminal isn't open and i press ctrl + alt or shift some times the gui disappears and im left with the text based terminal telling me to login and enter password even running apps doesnt work restarting the computer fixes the problem but im clueless as to what to do...
ive read a few wikis to fix the keyboard input but only works as a temp solution and returns to the same after restart...

the code i entered for temp fixing is
sudo kbd_mode -s

ps: the issue only happens when i close an app using alt f4 and the keyboard glitches until i press another key on it and then returns to normal
but if i were to press ctrl+ alt or shift the gui vanishes and i have to restart my system

this happens when pressing alt f4 i had opened brave browser using terminal

on pressing alt + ctrl lets say this happens and it wont let me open anything
only thing i can do is systemctl poweroff and power on my comp again
help please

Does this happen if you Alt+F4 Visual Studio or any application? Applications can output to terminal even if you exit them. Also watch out for RAM usage, you have only 4 GiB.

BTW, please, no pictures from terminal.

this was enabled from the start...

not that ive seen is usually brave

If your F-keys also serve as special function keys, make sure the function lock is not on--this could cause your keybindings to be interpreted wrongly.
