Solved Why is my wireless keyboard acting up?

February 10, 2017 at 14:20:29
Specs: Windows 7
I don't know what the subcatagory is or what 'configurations' means. Anyway, my keyboard started acting up--couldn't use 'backspace-erase, type one leter (example) twice in a row, and other isues. Went into key isues, changed some things, didn't help so changed them back. Wireles key-board so put in new bateries. New isue developed. Pointer arows changed size and color tho' showed to be at same setings I have always had. Can't get it to revert to med. sz. wht. instead of big black. Can only erase by alternating backspace and delete. Help please!

✔ Best Answer
Beg or borrow another keyboard to see if that does the same.

Another thing that might help is to go into Device Manager, find your keyboard, right click it and hit Uninstall. In Device Manager all this does is unset the software so that the keyboard is found as "new hardware" when you restart the system. If it offers to remove the software, decline.

You might have to sync the wireless connection afterwards.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Thank you for the very helpful suggestions. I went into Device Manager as you suggested and followed your directions. I also double checked that I had turned off any key changes I might accidentally have made. Everything seems okay now. I have another keyboard if I need to do more sleuthing. Thank you for the great advice!
