    Cannot get Forward OR Backward Slash to work in Windows 10

    Hello,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community and we are happy to help you.

    You are not able use forward slash key and backward slash key on your keyboard

    Could you answer few questions:

    • Have you made any recent changes on your computer prior to the issue?
    • What is the make and model of the keyboard?
    • Do you have problem with any other keys?

    I would like you to use On screen keyboard and check.

    Follow these steps:

    • Press Windows key+W and type On Screen Key Board.
    • Select Turn on screen Key Board on or off.
    • Click on Start On Screen Key Board.
    A new key board window will open up. Try to use that and check if it works.

    Post back us with results. We’ll be glad to assist you.

    My forward slash key doesn't work, however the question mark button does

    Notes
    • Question mark does work
    • Forward slash does work when I'm in the windows startup entering my password
    • Forward slash does not do anything, nor does it print another symbol or letter
    • My language is English (United States)
    • My keyboard is US- QWERTY and I have also tried US- International, both of which did not produce any results
    • I have not set up speech recognition
    • All my drivers for my keyboard are updated
    • I tried to remap the front slash to another key and it didn't work, nothing would print when I pressed the key
    I know the problem is not hardware related, but I am at a loss of what to do here. Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks!

    my slash key doesnt work

    Forward slash key works but question mark is not working.

    I am using Windows 10 on my laptop. Everything was working fine but from yesterday I've noticed my Question Mark key on keyboard is not working. I don't think it is a hardware problem, because Forward Slash under Question Mark key is working fine. Neither
    it is the problem with Shift key, because it is also working fine with all other keys.

    In short:

    / is working.

    shift+/ is not working.

    I've already tried updating and uninstalling keyboard drivers, but still the is not resolved. I also have tried to update the windows.

    Any help would be appreciated, thank you!
