  1. Function Keys Wont Work. Seemingly Unfixable. Please Help.


    I have tried many troubleshooting steps for this issue, and nothing seems to work. I feel as if it's the functions themselves that do not work. F12 works, but only as an enter key with CTRL+ESC+F12. I can't use functions with onscreen keyboard or PowerToys either. Windows doesn't have keyboard drivers for my computer on their website, and I cant access bios as the keys don't work. This makes me feel as if it's a physical issue, but then why would F12 work? I cant even assign my Logitech mouse's programmable buttons to those functions. I really just want to be able to make my keyboard light up

    :)

    Hi Kyle,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community and being part of Windows 10.

    I understand the inconvenience you are facing in accessing the F key on your device. We will help you with this issue.

    Do let us know the following to assist you better with this issue:

    • What is the make and model of your device?
    • Form when are you facing this issue and have you made any changes to the operating system prior to this issue?
    • What are the troubleshooting steps have you performed?

    If you are using external keyboard, I suggest you to connect the keyboard to different port and to different computer and check if it is working fine.

    This will help us to know if the issue is with port/ computer the keyboard is connected to or the keyboard it self.

    Step 1: I suggest you to run Hardware and Devices troubleshooter it

    • Press Windows key from the keyboard, type
      Troubleshooting and select it.
    • Click on view all option on the upper left corner of
      Troubleshooting window.
    • Select the Hardware and Device options from the list.
    • Click Next to run the Hardware and Device
      Troubleshooter.

    Step 2: Update the keyboard drivers.

    • Press Windows key + X key when you are at desktop.
    • Select Device Manager.
    • Expand Keyboard.
    • Right click on the Keyboard driver
      and click on Update driver software
