Mouse or keyboard shortcuts freeze the screen for a few seconds every time I use them

I have installed for the first time ZorinOS in my desktop, but now while I am using it whenever I use keyboard shortcuts or shortcuts bound to some of my mouse keys the screen freezes and takes a few seconds to go back to running normally again. The inputs I give after the freeze still come out after the freeze.

Not sure of what type of information could be useful in this scenario but here are some about the desktop and the OS:

Examples of keyboard shortcuts that are freezing the screen:

  • Ctrl + Shift + Tab
  • Ctrl + Tab
  • Ctrl + W
  • Alt + Tab
  • Enter (which is bound to a mouse key)
  • Ctrl + Z

Does anyone have any idea of what could I do to fix this or even any idea of how to debug it?


Apart from this problem: great OS btw!

Which Browser are you Using?

And which Nvidia Driver are you using?
