    Windows key suddenly stopped working a few days ago.


    Title.

    Plugging an external keyboard in and pressing the windows key seems to work, pressing the windows button on my mouse seems to bring up the start menu. Only problem is with the laptop keyboard. I've taken the key off, checked it and everything. No problems there: No sticky/dirty bits. Pressing down on the rubber bit doesn't seem to register though. Keyboard tester applications do not register the windows key being pressed on the laptop keyboard, but it does register it on the external keyboard/mouse.

    It did work for a few presses when I repeatedly pressed down on it, but it seems to have stopped working now.

    Computer problem, or should I be searching for a new keyboard?

    :)

    Windows 10 Store app crashing

    Same problem here. Store app was working a few days ago -- but stopped suddenly. Splash screen shows up - vanishes and the app closes.

    Any suggestions.

    Windows key suddenly stopped working a few days ago.

    Uninstall the keyboard driver and then reboot and let the OS reinstall the driver. If you are plugging in the keyboard while Windows is running, it can cause problems when plugging in a USB keyboard. Also the keyboard mapping may be incorrect for the type of keyboard that you are using.
