    Tilde key doesn't work (software issue probably)


    Hello,

    i have a strange problem!!! I already reinstalled Windows for this, as i couldn't figure it out. Key "tilde" ` doesn't work. I can't write ` it does nothing. Only if i hold the key: it starts writing ````````` But one keypress does nothing! It is probably not a keyboard issue! It works fine on Linux! Or on other computers! I have no idea what causes it! So strange!!! It happened all of the sudden. Only thing, which comes to my mind: i recently pressed something and language menu showed on taskbar, even i changed this hotkey to something i wouldn't ever press. But how could possibly change language on keyboard hotkey cause this?

    I have nothing. I couldn't find what is causing this issue. So weird!!! Restart/shutdown doesn't help, or sfc /scannow...

    Please help!

    :)

    Ah never mind, language switch button was set to tilde. There are 2 hotkeys for
    - keyboard language
    - input layout

    I thought it was one hotkey together lol. Strange is i set this, not long after reinstall. And tilde still worked at that point, have no idea what the heck, but glad it works now!
