Default Disable Keyboard Shortcuts Keys (Quick Launch)

To Disable the Quick Launch feature:
1. Settings>Applications>Quick Launch
2. Press and hold each letter that has a Quick Launch Application associated with it and select "Clear"

Yeah, that was really driving me nuts. I finally figured this out myself today, but I've already requested to return the darn thing to Sprint (going back to the trusty Palm Pre).

My HTC Evo Shift just started doing this, so I had to turn off all the keyboard shortcuts. I think they're supposed to be triggered only when you first touch the Search button, but for me they were activating whenever I pressed an s, g, or b.

You are not alone! Just yesterday my Evo Shift started quick launching every time I touched one of the default keys, so I had to disable them in order to type words containing B's, G's or S's!

Of course, I would like to be able to use the Quick Launch shortcuts properly (that is, after I press the Search button) at some point... anyone know of the cause or the cure for the problem?

This happened to me today. I found the fix after trial and error.

First i rebooted the phone. No, Dice.

Then I put up with it and started to sub 5 for s and 8 for B and 9 for g's.

After reading this thread and then studying the quick launch feature more I was able to fix the issue by simply double tapping the search button on my phone.

Another double tap on the button turns the quick launch short cuts back on.

Evidently my ear or cheek must of turned on the feature some time today.

There you go no need to completely disable the feature.

Default Thank you!

The first answer listed, about Settings>Applications>Quicklaunch... That did nothing to fix the problem. To think something so infuriating could be fixed with something so simple. Thank you so much. I can't seem to reactivate quicklaunch the same way, but I really don't care to reenable them anyway!

The bug should be fixed with Froyo, therefor this bug is obsolete... Unless someone hasn't updated yet?

Just ran into this today with my newly purchased keyboard/case. Thanks! By the way, I would assume this is not fixed in Froyo, because my tablet is ICS.
