    How to Restore 'Ctrl + Left Arrow' & 'Ctrl + Right Arrow' Function?


    Hi. I usually use 'Ctrl + Right Arrow' or ' Ctrl + Left Arrow' to quickly move ahead or back (word by word) in a sentence I am editing. Or, I use the combinations together with the Shift Key to quickly highlight words in a given sentence. The Ctrl + Arrow (and related) Ctrl + Arrow + Shift have stopped working on my system; i.e., nothing happens when I try to use the keys in combination ... but the keys function as expected individually.


    So far, I've restored my Windows settings to an earlier point in time to try and fix the issue, but the problem remains across all applications.


    Does anyone know of a fix to control this shortcut / hotkey issue?


    OS: Windows 10 Pro, x64

  2. Remap “Windows key + Ctrl + Left or Right arrow” to “Alt + Ctrl + Left or Right arrow”

    How can I, using AutoHotKey, remap the following:

    Windows+Ctrl+Left/Right arrow (which switches virtual desktops on windows 10)

    to

    Alt+Ctrl+Left/Right arrow

    or to

    Ctrl+Left/Right arrow

    Also:

    from: Win + Tab

    to: Ctrl + up arrow

    Windows Key + CTRL + Right Doesn't Work (Desktop Switch)

    Hi,

    I love the new multiple desktops. However, the desktop switch isn't working for me.

    It's an odd bug...

    Windows Key + (left) CTRL + Right Arrow Key will not work, but Windows Key + (left) CTRL + Left Arrow Key will work.

    Both the left and right arrow keys work when I use the right CTRL key, and the left CTRL key works perfectly fine using an external keyboard.

    Any suggestions?
