  2. Certain keys on the keyboard are not working properly.

    Hi Russell,

    Thank you for posting your question in the Microsoft Community.

    I understand that certain keys on the keyboard are not working properly on the pc. I will try to help you with this issue.

    Please answer these questions to get more clarity on this issue:


    • Did you make any changes to the pc prior to this issue?

    • Have you installed all pending updates on the pc?

    • Have you performed a full pc virus scan on the system recently?

    Suggest you to launch the on-screen keyboard to check if the issue persists.

    Follow these steps to launch the On-screen keyboard:


    • Press “Windows key + R” to get the run window.

    • Type “osk” and hit enter to launch the On-screen keyboard and check if this helps.

    Also suggest you to install any pending Windows updates on the pc to check if that helps.
    Updates are additions to software that can help prevent or fix problems, improve how your computer works, or enhance your computing experience.

    Further, you may also boot the computer in a clean boot state and check if the issue persists. When you start Microsoft Windows, typically there are several programs that start automatically and run in the background that may interfere with the system.
    These programs may include antivirus and system utility programs. When you perform a clean startup procedure, you prevent these programs from starting automatically.

    Note: After you have finished troubleshooting, follow the steps under “How to reset the computer to start as usual after troubleshooting with clean boot” in the article to boot to normal startup.

    Keep us informed to help you further.

    Cant place icons on certain places on dekstop

    Hi,

    It's possible that some settings on your computer are preventing you from placing desktop icons in a specific location. We'd like to learn more about your concern so we could provide the proper troubleshooting steps. We just have a few questions
    for you:


    • Which version of Windows 10 is on your computer? To check, click
      Start
      , type winver, and press Enter.

    • Does this only happen with certain icons, or does this happen with any icon? Please post a screenshot so we could study it further.

    • Did you make any changes to your computer before this started happening?

    Cant place icons on certain places on dekstop

    We appreciate the information you've provided. We suggest downloading the latest update, KB4020102, to see if that resolves your concern with the icon placement.
    To do that, go to Settings > Update & Security
    > Check for Updates.

    We also recommend changing the desktop icon settings. To access it, follow these steps:


    • Click Start.

    • Type Themes and press Enter.

    • Click Change desktop icons.

    • Uncheck Allow themes to change desktop icons.

    • Click Apply.

    • Click OK.

    After installing the latest updates and changing the desktop icon settings, check if you can place icons on the left side of your screen.

    Let us know if what happens to your icon placement after following these steps.
