    Cannot use keyboard in any browser


    We just updated our windows 7 laptop with windows 10. When we open Edge or Chrome, we cannot use keyboard to type anything either in search window or address bar. Browsers are also very slow to respond or freeze. Any idea what is happening? We can type in control panel search box so keyboard seems to be working.. I am using different machine to post this message. Any help appreciated. Thanks,

    :)

  2. Stuck in Scroll-Right or Scroll-Down

    Nope, no irregularities. This is bad.

    I cannot use dropdown lists in any browser.

    I cannot use File Explorer as it scrolls wildly.

    I cannot use any application that makes use of the CTRL buttons (for menus, e.g.), as that causes automated scrolling, resizing of text or worse.

    My hunch is that I somehow enabled a "special mode" on my keyboard. MSFT wireless keyboard, that is persistent and carries over to all attached keyboards.

    Any idea (other than wipe / reinstall)?

    Cannot use Edge Browser, Cannot use Windows Store

    Thank you so much for the update. Based on the details provided, since
    DISM restore health
    failed after less than 10 percent, it means that there is a an issue on your system image files or the OS itself is corrupted. What we can do now is to use the
    Media
    Creation Tool
    before performing the
    Custom Installation.
    We understand that you still lack of proper media. So kindly update us whenever you have time to perform this.

    We will wait for the results.

    Regards.

    As a diagnostic can you open Internet Explorer and type? Go to Apps, scroll to the Ws, find Windows Accessories and click on Internet Explorer. I tend to right-click it an choose Pin to Start and Pin to Taskbar, simpler to use for some things.

    Thanks for the feedback. Yes, I am able to open and type in Internet Explorer, but still not in Chrome or Edge. They just freeze the moment we open and try to type. Do we have to reinstall them, will that help?

    Just realized IE too is not working properly. I am able to type in address bar, but not in google search window or email login. We have firefox browser that too is not working. Don't know what settings are messed up. Let us know if anybody has any clue... Thanks for your time.
