Can't type z because it opens Date and Time

Bug Description

The shortcut or hot key for Insert Date and Time is "z", which means whenever I try to type z the insert date and time window opens instead.

The shortcut key should be combined with a ctrl or alt key

I recall it happening before on another computer. I don't know whether it started happening because of something I did inadvertently on this computer or whether that is the default. It seems I noticed it here right after I may have inadvertently hit a combination of keys. Evidently the z key was working properly before because I find z occurring in older documents.
