  2. shift and ctrl keys not working - windows 10

    We can see here that you are having issues using the Shift and Ctrl keys on your keyboard. To isolate this concern, have you performed the following:

    • Right-click on Start menu.
    • Select Control Panel.
    • Choose Ease of Access.
    • Click on Change how your keyboard works.
    • Tick the box beside Turn on Sticky Keys.
    • Click on Apply.
    • Select OK.

    If so, we suggest that you revert the computer back to its previous version. You can free up some space in your disk drive by backing up some files to an external hard drive.

    shift and ctrl keys not working - windows 10

    Neither of my two shift keys nor my ctrl key work on my Acer laptop. I checked that I have the latest keyboard driver. I tried pressing both shift keys simultaneously but this did not fix the problem. The keyboard has only one ctrl key. I tried the alternative
    keyboard but no luck there either. The touch keyboard does work.

    I tried

    • control panel > Accessibility Options.
    • under keyboard there is sticky keys.
    • Remove the tick and click apply and OK.
    but could not find the Accessibility Options in my Control Panel. Also I do not think I have sticky keys turned on.

    This appeared to happen after a Windows 10 update. Cannot revert to previous as this laptop has too little disk space.

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Shift/ctrl key problem.

    Hi Jovan,

    The issue you're experiencing is probably due to incorrect settings. A Windows Ease of Access feature called
    Filter keys is an accessibility function that tells the keyboard to ignore repeated strokes. When this function is enabled, it ignores whatever key is pressed down or repeatedly pressed. To verify this, follow the steps below:

    • Open Control Panel.
    • Click on Ease of Access.
    • Under Ease of Access Center, click on Change how your keyboard works.
    • Under Make it easier to type, click on Set up Filter keys.
    • The Turn on Filter Keys should not be checked, as well as
      Turn on Filter Keys when right SHIFT is pressed for 8 seconds
      .

    We also suggest that you play around with the features and check which one works best for you. If the issue persists, let us know.
