ControlSend sometimes sends wrong text

ControlSend sometimes sends wrong text. For example, I want to send "www.songwei@…", but I get "wWW>songwei@…" or "". That is, ControlSend adds or removes a Shift in the text.

This is known bug/limitation related to some national keyboard layouts (like Czech in my case).
You can find topics about that in old Bug forum section (not track) from me.

Result was - it will not (can't) be fixed.
You may use ControlSetText() as workaround or change keyboard layout to english then use Send()/ControlSend() and change layout back.

depending what you are oing simulteaneously when running your script eg you can have such behaviour if the shift key used.
the zedna suggestion is perfectly valid (controlsettext)
