Solved Why my Left [Ctrl] Key dosn't work any more ?

October 5, 2020 at 04:13:05
Specs: Windows 10
Hi !
In the last two days i have remarked that the left [Ctrl] dosen't work any more so i can't use [Ctrl] +A or [ctrl]+C or [Ctrl]+V ???
The right is still working !
So what did you think is a hardware issue or a softaware issue ?
I have run this command
SFC /SCANNOW
the problem is still there !
I have tested with another extern USB Keyboard and the left [Ctrl] works !

What gives you the idea that you need anyone else's opinion?
Don't you think you have enough information to draw your own
conclusions on this particular question?

Obviously. Depending on the type of keyboard and the
cause of the failure, you might be able fix it by cleaning it.
Otherwise replace it.

Yes, but I'm almost certain that line was in there before my first
reply, and the time stamps appear to show that I happened to
come along less than ten minutes after he posted. (It took me
three or four minutes to compose the reply.)

Remains to be seen if the OP comes back with an update - or not...?

Full marks - the original keyboard is faulty!

Either the key is stuck - in which case follow JohnW's links re' how to clean a keyboard; often more trouble than it's worth if an external one; or replace it.

Keyboard keys can be gummed up very easily with accumulated whatever; and no keyboard will last for ever - certainly not these days.
