Pynput - no capital letters - jmair - Feb-10-2019

Is there a known issues with Windows 10 to where it doesn't recognize characters modified by shift or Caps Lock?

    letter = letter.replace("'", "")

with Listener(on_press = look_for_key) as l:

The key controller works, allowing me to send "Hello World", but I am unable to identify a 'H' only 'h'. I tried running under admin with the same result.

Made a Win7 VM machine with the same result (I was really hoping it would be a win10 issue), same result. Also tried installing PyCharm as that's what a few of the videos show (
I believe it should be catching all Alt key actions, otherwise we wouldn't be able to code for laptops with often unique Alt key actions.

Anyhow, I'll let this die until I have an answer for others to post.
