Just recently, my left shift key has been typing out this symbol | when I press it. But only when I press it on the left side closer to the Z. This is making it hard for me to capitalise my letters and is quite annoying.

||See this is what my sentence looks like when |I use my shift like I| normally would, without consciously pressing it on the far left side. |Stupid vertical bar. It spams if I hold it down, too. ||||||||||||

I use a Cougar Vantar RGB Scissor Switch Gaming Keyboard. Since this is a recent problem, I assume that I have toggled something without knowing?

Thank you for your help!

Try to clean the key with compressed air, there could be dust, dirt or food particles such as Burger Rings or Twisties.
