    Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    I appreciate the troubleshooting steps you have tried to resolve the issue.

    Follow the steps below and check if that helps.

    Method 1: To check if Ctrl keys work in Onscreen keyboard.

      Control panel.

      Large icons.

    Did not try that before since I was not familiar with these keys.

    Both Ctrl keys not working

    Hello,

    If you're also experiencing the same, have you also tried using external keyboards and see if it makes any difference? Have you also checked if the CTRL keys work on onscreen keyboard? If you still haven't, just press
    Windows Key + R and type osk and hit Enter. By the way, when you say you've already "tried the troubleshooting", do you mean
    Hardware and Device Troubleshooter? If not, you can follow the steps below:

    Windows 10 has a built-in troubleshooter to check and fix issues with hardware and devices. I would suggest you to run this troubleshooter to check if the issue is with the Bluetooth adapter. Refer these steps:

    • Click on troubleshooting and click on the view all option on the left panel.

    • Run the Hardware and devices troubleshooter.

    • Restart your computer and check if the issue is resolved.

    We're looking forward to your response.
