  3. Keyboard typing issue with Windows 10

    Hi Rick,

    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Community. We will help you in resolving the issue.

    This issue might occur due to the keyboard language change. It happens so when you upgrade to Windows 10, certain settings changes will take place with the upgrade. The keyboard language might change or the device drivers may not be compatible with
    the upgraded operating system.

    Method 1: I suggest you to run the
    hardware and devices
    troubleshooter by following the steps below and check if the issue is resolved.


    • Press Windows icon key on the keyboard, type
      troubleshooter and select the top most search result.

    • Click on View all from left side panel of the screen.

    • Select Hardware and Devices,
      click on Advanced option and check
      Apply repairs automatically option.

    • Follow the on screen instructions.

    Method 2: I suggest you to
    download the keyboard language from the Settings page by following the steps below and check if the issue is resolved.


    • Press Windows icon key on the keyboard, type
      Settings and select the top most search result.

    • Select Time & Language from the options shown in the window.

    • Click on Region & Language from the left side panel, click on
      English language under Added language and click on
      Options.

    • Check if you have downloaded the Language Pack,
      Speech and Keyboard language from the window. Download the pending language pack and check if the issue is resolved.

    • After the download is complete, go back to
      Region & language
      window, select English language and click on
      Set as Default.

    • Close the page and check if the issue is resolved.

    Write back to us with the status of the issue on the same post for further assistance. Your reply is most important for us to ensure we assist you accordingly.

    Fix Keyboard typing backward issue in Windows 10

    Strange Keyboard issues Windows 10


    All, I have recently purchased a new HP Envy laptop and I am using a Microsoft natural keyboard via USB. The keyboard works as expected for several hours of the day. However, out of nowhere, the keyboard will suddenly stop working for certain applications.

    Here is what I know:

    • -It doesn't seem to be every application. A lot of the times, I open a new email and suddenly cannot type. When this occurs, the delete, home, insert keys still work on the keyboard (inside of the new email reply).

    • -When I can no longer type in an application, I can open an Internet browser and still type to enter a URL or search Google so the keyboard never completely stops functioning...only for the application where the problem is currently happening.

    • -When I can no longer type in an application, other applications still allow me to type like there is no issue at all.

    • -Unplugging the keyboard and plugging back in does not resolve the issue. Additionally, as mentioned above, the keyboard still works in other open applications.

    • -Laptop has 16GB of memory. I do not believe this is a performance related issue.

    • -I am rebooting my laptop a few times a day to fix the issue.

    • -I am also noticing that after 10-15 minutes or so, the program(s) that previously prohibited me from typing (all of a sudden), will just start working again as if nothing ever happened.

    • -Restarting the laptop fixes the issue. Closing the program experiencing the issue and then re-opening does NOT fix the problem.

    What I can't figure out:

    • -I cannot figure out a pattern as to which applications are experiencing this issue. It happens often in Outlook and also happens in my IM client (using pidgin). It has happened as well in SQL Server.
    • -I cannot figure out how long it takes for the program to "recover." As I mentioned above, I don't always have to reboot for the keyboard to start working again. Sometimes waiting several minutes fixes the problem.

    I am troubleshooting as well as I can, but I am also quite busy with work so sometimes the easiest method is simply to reboot and hope I catch on to some pattern the next time the issue occurs.

    Any help provided will certainly be appreciated as this is starting to become quite frustrating. I am also going to check HP's support, but my first inclination is that this is a Windows 10 issue.

    Thanks in Advance!
