Recently while typing documents the Styles window keeps opening. It does it again and again, which is so annoying. I have never pressed f11. How can I stop this happening? It never used to happen.

This started to happen after an update? This happens when you are typing or when using the mouse/touchpad? Do you have a touchpad? What is your operating system? And LibreOffice version?

I am not aware that it started after an update. I have windows 10, I use a desktop pc with a conventional keyboard and mouse. I have no idea what version of LibreOffice I have, nor how to find that out. I have no technical knowledge about computers.

Alt+y,Alt+e brings up paragraph style. Is the Alt key getting stuck down/shorting/have a paperclip/staple under it? Sometimes, turning keyboard upside down and shaking can dislodge stuff, sometimes the keys can be prised off to remove foreign objects.

Following @Earnest Al comment: In my LibreOffice default customization, Alt+Y+Y is equivalent to F11.
