Stylus button shortcut opening menu box (Help)
Hello, so I'm going to try and describe what is happening as best as I can. 

I have a Huion 190GT Tablet and I've been using Gimp for quite a few years for art. I have the latest version and latest drivers for my tablet supplied by on Huion's website. 
I shortcut my Undo command (Ctrl Z) to one of the buttons on my Stylus Pen's buttons which has always worked fine. However yesterday it started popping up a menu box instead displaying options (File, edit, select, view etc etc) However if I hover the cursor over the toolbox or layers it will complete the command without popping up the menu box. This has made my work extremely slow and frustrating because I am not used to having to move my cursor off the canvas to undo, and I undo a lot. Does anyone know how I can fix it so that it does not pop up this menu anymore? 

welcome to

Just to let you know you are not being ignored. The problem is not many Huion tablets users around that might have a solution.

Hopefully one will come along.

However, the normal action of ctrl-z is to undo the the last action straight away without any of the above.
On my installation - linux Gimp 2.8.22 displaying options (File, edit, select, view etc etc) is invoked with a right mouse click.
Very long shot: Maybe check that some recent Windows update has not reset the tablet settings
What I believe is happening is Gimp thinks that button, no matter what I set it to in my settings, is my right click button. Is there anyway you can think of that I can do to stop this?
Not sure if this is helpful, but I had a similar problem with my Ugee pen/tablet and the right-click menu popping up unexpectedly.

I got around it by re-installing the software and un-ticking (un-checking) a box on the interface that reads 'Supports Digital Ink'.. no idea why this worked but it did.

Don't know whether this would apply to your Huion tablet or not.
