  1. windows key not working and some apps not functioning correctly


    (Build 19043.1165)so i recently had an issue with drive space specifically on my C: drive. It was full and i was moving things from there to my D: drive which was empty. i assumed the best thing to do was to take the two largest folders (being Program Files and Program Files (x86), like a dumb cunn. anyways i realised there were better options and moved them back over however during the move back i experienced some issues specifically with the "WindowsApps" folder. my home key became dysfunctional and PredatorSense also stopped working. any tips would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

    :)

  2. 1215N function keys not working?

    I recently purchased a Asus Eee PC 1215N, and reinstalled Windows (the factory install has too much bloatware.)

    However I'm finding some of the function keys do not work. Changing brightness works fine with the function keys, but volume and turning off the touchpad doesn't seem to work.

    Is there a tool I can install?
    I only used Windows Update for the drivers so far, and I wiped the recovery partition to make more room for the install itself.

    I read about something called ATK hotkeys, would that work?

    Hi Kyle,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community and being part of Windows 10.

    I understand the inconvenience you are facing in accessing the F key on your device. We will help you with this issue.

    Do let us know the following to assist you better with this issue:

    • What is the make and model of your device?
    • Form when are you facing this issue and have you made any changes to the operating system prior to this issue?
    • What are the troubleshooting steps have you performed?

    If you are using external keyboard, I suggest you to connect the keyboard to different port and to different computer and check if it is working fine.

    This will help us to know if the issue is with port/ computer the keyboard is connected to or the keyboard it self.

    Step 1: I suggest you to run Hardware and Devices troubleshooter it
    checks for common problems and makes sure that any new device or hardware connected to your PC is installed correctly.

    • Press Windows key from the keyboard, type
      Troubleshooting and select it.
    • Click on view all option on the upper left corner of
      Troubleshooting window.
    • Select the Hardware and Device options from the list.
    • Click Next to run the Hardware and Device
      Troubleshooter.

    Step 2: Update the keyboard drivers.

    • Press Windows key + X key when you are at desktop.
    • Select Device Manager.
    • Expand Keyboard.
    • Right click on the Keyboard driver
      and click on Update driver software
    • Restart the computer.

    Funny part all the keys work out of the box with Linux Mint, go figure.
