    Escape key minimizes, cannot type. Windows 10


    From time to time the windows key stops working, escape key closes windows, and I cannot type. Control alt delete does work. Right click with the mouse does nothing. I thought it was my keyboard so I tried using a different one and it happened again. I cant seem to find a solution. I would greatly appreciate any help

    :)
     

  2. windows 10 key

    Thanks but I don't want to do any decrypting. I want to download a Win 10 ISO from Microsoft and install it using my Win 8 key. No other steps required. Is that possible?

    Hi,

    To better assist you regarding the escape key on your keyboard, please clarify the following:

    • Since when are you experiencing the issue?
    • Are you getting any error messages?
    • Any recent changes made prior to the issue?
    • Have you tried using a different keyboard?

    Regards.

    Installing Windows 10 using Windows 7 key

    Nope, you need to install Windows 10 first and make sure the Windows 7 key is transferred to your Windows account after you've installed Windows 10 (not quite sure how that works). I missed the last step and I could not activate Windows 10 after a re-install... Microsoft seem to have done everything they can to make it a PITA. Also, it's technically too late to do this now anyhow, as the upgrade offer has expired. But KMSPico works quite well...

    As for getting rid of Windows, delete the Windows folder.
