I am so used to its not working that it doesn't alarm me when I see no 
red, but here its never been underlined.  That is a relatively minor 
detail in comparison to the unknown hot key enabling of html formatted 

 know when it happens because of the screen flash I see out of the corner 
of my eye about 10% of the time. Its a full screen refresh just as you 
get when you discover its on because there more icons to the right of 
the encryption multi selector.  I suspect its something involving my not 
reaching far enough for the left shift key, and pressing both it and the 
ctrl key just below it.  These K360 keys are square topped and vertical 
sided keys, which discourage being hung up like keytops with slanted 
sides having a piece of metallic cuttings from the lathe or milling 
machine, following the slant down into the key frame, then because the 
key sides are slanted, wedging the key down.  

And since we can drive the machines given axis with keys in addition to 
writing the code for complex operations, the X & Y is by the arrow keys, 
Z being page-up/page-down on the mill, having one of them jammed down 
usually equals a damaged/broken tool or damaged part, usually both.  
Cutting tools I can buy, for 10-50 dollars, replacement parts can be 
worth even more, so stuck keys are to be avoided at all costs.  I use 
this same keyboard here in the house just so I don't have to relearn it 
when I go to the machines to do something.  And I just found a place to 
buy skins for this keyboard, which should even save things if I spill a 
cuppa on them, which has also happened in the past.

But I have not been able to deduce the third key that completes this 
hot-key combo.

And thats why I am pleading now, for a way to remove that html enabling 

Please people, where is it?
