    Keyboard not working on windows apps after last insiders update


    The keyboard doesn't work at Windows apps. Pressing any key doesn't seem to affect any of the native applications. This also includes the following:


    • The login screen: Pressing space on the login screen should lead to a screen which asks for the password. Besides that the password field works great, pressing space doesn't slide to the logins screen as before.


    • The startup menu: The Win key still works as a shortcut for opening the startup menu, however typing on the search has no effect. No character is displayed nor computed.


    • The settings app and the Feedback Hub: None of these apps seems to respond to keyboard events. Unfortunately I had to post this here because I can't sing in to my Microsoft account on the desktop app

    I'm not sure if this started after the WSL 2 Kernel Update https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/wsl/wsl2-kernel, or after the last Insiders build on the Slow Ring.

    Thanks!

    :)

    Keyboard not working after Windows 10 Update

    Hi,

    Have you tried updating
    your mouse and keyboard driver? If not, we suggest you to do so. There is a possibility that the driver is not compatible with the new Windows 10 update. However, one
    of the workarounds that we suggest for your mouse and keyboard to work is to update the driver. If the symptom persist, you can run the Hardware and Devices Troubleshooter. To run the Troubleshooter, follow these steps:


    • On your search bar, type
      Troubleshooting.

    • Change the view to
      View all.

    • Choose
      Hardware and Devices
      and run the troubleshooter.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Regards.
