  1. Keyboard key spontaneously remapped


    Recently after using Windows a while the "l" key lower case on the keyboard gets mapped into the "move to the rightmost desktop" key. or maybe just repeated "move desktop right" actions.


    This is not a physical problem since it even happens if I use a Bluetooth keyboard. Sometimes it fixes itself spontaneously though I typically reboot though, even that, doesn't always work.


    I tried to find the mapping including using Power Toys to see if the mapping is listed.


    Any ideas?

    :)

  2. External keyboard keys remapped

    Hi, some keys on my external keyboard that I use with my laptop have been remapped.

    They have been remapped like this:

    2 remapped to Insert

    3 remapped to Home

    4 remapped to 'W'

    5 remapped to Delete

    I tried the laptop's inbuilt keyboard and there are no issues whatsoever. I don't know if it is a software or hardware issue.

  3. Remapping keyboard keys

    thanks for this but the first post is to "assign a macro or program to a key" which is not what i want to do.

    Im not sure why i would need to run the troubleshooter because there is nothing wrong with the keyboard i just want to remap the keys.

    i am unsure also why you are referring me to update with the media creation tool? these seem completely unrelated to my problem....

    note: i just tried selecting the 'send key combinations' on my remote desktop client and this allowed the remapping software to recognise the CMD key as the left windows key so i thought i was in luck. i remapped it in the software to the left CRTL key and
    restarted but it doesnt seem to have done anything at all....frustrating.
