    Windows 10 version 1909

    The problem appeared about three months ago. My keyboard layout is for the Icelandic language. It includes a dead key for vowels: á, é, í, ó, ú, and ý. So, I can type a or á, etc., if the dead key works.

    I use the Microsoft Designer Bluetooth Keyboard. The dead-key vowels first appeared normally. Right at startup.

    Now, just after start-up the keyboard will not produce the dead-key vowels. Then, from 15 to 30 minutes later, the dead-key vowels start appearing normally. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers, but no change.

    Pressing the shortcut keys for the Icelandic language does no good.

    How can I restore its full functioning from start-up?

    :)
