    My right shift key is not working. No hardware issue.


    On my keyboard the right shift key is not working.


    What i have done trying to solve the problem:

    • tested Keyboard with other PC everything works fine
    • Search for new driver
    • deinstall driver and restart PC
    • Checked keyboard language
    • Disabled Sticky and Filter Keys
    • run the hardware and devices troubleshooter for the keyboard
    • most interesting for me: I tried the On-Screen Keyboard. On it, if I use only my mouse everything works fine. If I press right shift the shift keys get blue...so there is some input there. But still there is no function on it while writing. Even if I press right shift on the keyboard and the letters on the On-screen Keyboard with the mouse. If I press left shift it also turns blue, but it has a function, as it should be.


    Do you know of anything left I can try solving other than resetting the hole PC?

    :)

    shift keys not working

    I upgraded to windows 10 on my Toshiba laptop and then did the windows update and when I tried to do anything with the shift key neither one works. I read all the suggestions I could find in here and tried most of them with no luck. I ran the hardware
    and device troubleshooter, I went to the keyboard on control panel and it says it's working properly. I tried shift/control/alt keys all together. I downloaded and scanned with anti malware and I did the fn and del keys with no results. I would like an easy
    fix for this as I believe it is a windows 10 and or update for windows 10 issue. I am not real savvy on the computer so I need step by step instructions, please and thank you.

    Hi,



    Before we proceed, I need more information to help you better.


    • Since when are you facing this issue?

    • Did you make any software or hardware changes on your computer prior to this issue?


    I suggest you to follow the steps below and check if it helps.

    Step 1: You may check if the ALT key is functioning correctly in on-screen keyboard. It will help us to verify if there is any issue with the keyboard.

    Follow the steps below to open On-screen Keyboard.


    • Windows + Q, type OSK (on-screen keyboard)

    • And check if it works
    Step 2: Run Hardware and device Troubleshooter.

    Windows 10 has a built-in troubleshooter to check and fix issues with hardware and devices. I would suggest you to run this troubleshooter to check if the issue is with your devices. Refer these steps:


    • Press Windows key +X, select Control panel.

    • Change the view by option on the top right to Large icons.

    • Click on troubleshooting and click on the view all option on the left panel.

    • Run the Hardware and devices troubleshooter.
