|To review. At first only Winkey + E stopped working. Then all Winkey functions stopped. |
I have corrected the second problem. There is a patch and also a program that will turn all the Winkey/Winkey combinations off/on. Having turned the whole back on, I am back to my original problem: the Winkey + E to open Windows explorer is the only thing that does not work.
I contacted Microsoft. Their reply was that this was a hardware problem and that I should contact my local technician.
The problem has gotten smaller but is still annoying. When this happened, I was experimenting with trial versions of Translation Programs. I wonder if are programs that conflict with Winkey combinations and if so how to fix it. I wouldn't think so, but I see on various sites that Winkey + E failure is more common that other related problems.
I also wonder where in Windows XP the Winkey shortcuts are stored.
Thanks for all the replies.
