Items pinned to your taskbar can be auto-launched by holding the Windows key and pressing the corresponding numpad key. Look into "power user" settings for more info.

If this is happening unintentionally your Windows key could be jammed or sticky. That would be the simplest answer I can dig up. If that fails, read on...

Read it all first!! Do you have any keymapping software installed? Are any of your other keys that trigger functions jammed? Check the windows key, alt, control, shift, and other keys like that to make sure they aren't stuck. Have you gone through your accessibility menu in the control panel? It's the place where things like stickey keys are located. Check all that stuff to ensure they are set correctly. Any new software installed of any type? (games, programs, drivers, whatever) What about hardware updates? Another keyboard? Have you ruled out the keyboard? Do this first.
