    Mouse & keyboard misbehaving after update


    Both of these began exactly concurrent with the latest major update.

    I'm using a (genuine) Microsoft IntelliMouse Optical. The mouse cursor is unresponsive at bootup, but if I disconnect and reconnect it, it works fine. The mouse buttons still work initially (I can successfully left- or right-click whatever the cursor happens to be on), but the cursor itself initially won't move. Not a deadly problem, just irritating to dig through the cables twice a day. Tried a different port; no change. Tried the mouse on a different PC, no problems. Device Manager says driver is up to date, and hey, it's MS's own product after all.

    Second, and conceivably related: the Task Switcher shortcut (ALT+TAB) no longer works. Unlike the mouse, this doesn't resolve if I disconnect & reconnect the keyboard. And testing with a different keyboard gives the same issue, so clearly it's not mechanical. To be clear: I'm not talking about the new multiple virtual desktop feature, just switching between program windows.

    Any ideas how to fix one or both of these? I know keyboard and mouse issues are common after an update, but this is the first time I've actually had it happen so I'm unacquainted with the usual remedies. The mouse issue I could live with; the other will drive me to drink.

    Thanks in advance for any clues.

  2. File Explorer problem in Windows10

    Hi there!

    Does it feel to you like your mouse is misbehaving?

    Does it happen to you when you disconnect your mouse and just use the keyboard?

    keyboard & mouse don't work after startup in windows 10

    keyboard & mouse don't work after startup in windows 10. I get the splash screen with the time & date. Keyboard or mouse don't do anything. No mouse pointer on the screen. I connected wired keyboard & mouse- no difference. This morning there was a windows
    10 update. After the update the keyboard worked and I got my normal desktop. After restarting the PC, I'm back to the splash screen and the keyboard has no effect. ASUS motherboard.
