  1. Sidewinder X4 Keyboard Media Keys Not Working


    Media keys do not work to control iTunes or Groove Music apps. Play button seems to Play and immediately pause again, Next" and "Previous" keys do nothing.


    Mute and Volume Up and Down keys work fine.


    Windows 10 PC, i7, lots of ram and big GPU.

    Microsoft Keyboard and Mouse Center Version 10.4.137.0


    No third party apps installed that controls keyboard, no Chrome Music app, no Youtube Media Keys extension.


    Tried different USB ports.


    I'm not far from buying a new keyboard at this point.

    :)

    Sidewinder X4 Keyboard Media Keys Not Working

    Microsoft Sidewinder x4 keyboard macros not working on Flight Simulator X on Windows 10 x64

    Hello,

    I have a Sidewinder x4 keyboard that has been working without any problems on Windows 7 x64.

    Recently I upgraded to Windows 10 x64.

    The keyboard works fine apart from one thing.

    All S key macros do not work on FSX.

    On all other applications they work fine.

    This wasn't happening with Windows 7 x64.

    I reinstalled the latest drivers with no success.

    Anybody has any suggestions?
