    Shift + Arrow Keys to select functionality stopped working


    Hello, I've recently lost the ability to select text or cells by holding shift key and using arrow keys to highlight/select.


    I've checked scroll lock, sticky keys and restarted a number of times. My shift and arrow keys work fine independently. Control + Arrow keys are working

    fine.


    Searched for a similar fix and have not come across anything that has worked... any help would be greatly appreciated, as this is a functionality I use every 5 seconds it seems (now that I am noticing its absence)!


    Thanks in advance,

    Ben

    :)

  2. down arrow key stopped working

    My razor lycosa down arrow key decided to not respond at some point today. The other ones work and so does the numpad arrow if i turn off the numlock. Sounds like its just broken and im screwed, but any suggestions?

    windows 10. I have not enabled sticky keys or anything else other than normal settings. Please help.

    Ctrl+Shift+Arrow key combination doesn't work

    Thanks Marvin,

    The Scroll Lock function is OFF.

    Ctrl+Arrow works as expected, jumping to the begining of the next word

    Shift+Arrow works as expected, selecting the next character

    Ctrl+Shift+Arrow does nothing at all

    Regards

    Hector
