    Windows 10 not recognizing USB mouse and keyboard if connected after arriving on lockscreen


    Hello everyone,


    I don't know exactly what caused it changed quite a lot my setup. But right now if I connect my USB keyboard and mouse after arriving on lock screen they do not work seems like they are not recognised. I am regularly switching between my laptop and desktop computer so I often forget it.

    I am forced to force a shutdown of my pc and reboot it with the keyboard and mouse already connected to make it work.


    Any clue of what is happening ?

    Not certain I need to test it again but I think once after waiting for quite a while on lock screen without shutting down the pc, it worked so it might be really slow to detect them.


    Thanks and regards,

    :)

    Keyboard and mouse not recognized after boot-up!

    Thanks, but how would I be able to do any of the things that you suggest when Windows is not recognizing either my keyboard or my mouse?

    I'll mention that I do intend to purchase a *wired* USB keyboard and mouse today and try them, but I'm not optimistic that they will be recognized by Windows either.
