Keyboard Not Working Properly After Update from Microsoft Windows 10

When you update the Windows 10 to latest version, sometimes the keyboard won’t work or gets jammed or won’t work properly. This is due to the reason that the latest update which you install, can cause the error and affects your System functionality and that’s why your Keyboard stops working properly.

In this tutorial, I am providing you the solutions so that you may have access back to your Keyboard properly. And I hope after applying the solutions, your Keyboard will again work properly.

Uninstall Latest Downloaded Update

The first thing you can do is to uninstall the latest update, because there is a chance that the latest update is causing the issue because in some cases, the update may not work properly as you were expecting from it.

Go to Control Panel –> Programs and Features and go to “View the installed updates”.

Now here is the list of all recent updates installed on your System. So go to latest one and uninstall the update by right clicking the particular update. After uninstalling, Reboot your System and I hope that your Keyboard starts working properly again.

If this won’t solve your problem, go to the next solution.

Install the Keyboard Driver

The Keyboard may stop working due to the driver issue. So update your Keyboard driver manually to fix the issue.Go to Start Menu and type Device Manager. And find the Keyboard from the list. And expand it. Right click on its driver and select the option for ”update the driver”.

You may also want to disable driver updates in Windows 10 so that all the drivers keep on running without problems or even take a backup of your currently installed device drivers in Windows 10.

Turn Off Filter Keys

Disabling the Filter Keys feature can also make your Keyboard work properly. Filter Keys are used to ignore the repeated keystrokes. Or in a simple way, while doing some work, you enter the same key twice or thrice but you only need it once, so Filter Key won’t happen it and write only single times.

The enabling of this feature can also lead the inappropriate functioning of your Keyboard. So disable it by going to “Control Panel/Ease of Access/Ease of Access Center/Make the keyboard easier to use”.

Now in the list, you can see the option for “Filter Keys”. So, uncheck the Checkbox of Filter Keys. Close all the windows. Restart your System and hopefully, your problem will be gone.

  3. Friend,

    Thank you for this overview, which gave me some understanding of the problem and the options. My fix was to uninstall the keyboard driver, restart and let Windows reinstall the keyboard. Keyboard went dead after the last update to ver 1903. I hope all here experiencing the problem are able to get their rig up and running by way of whatever fix needed.

    Was able to change out the battery and spark plugs on a 2005 PT Cruiser. Don’t laugh, because the procedure for both is complicated and obscure if you open the hood and have no clue where to start. YouTube sages to the rescue.

    Point is that my mind is blown by articles and sites like this that help the common idiot fix things that are otherwise out of reach but for lack of knowledge.

    Thank you for your help. Good Karma is in the wind for people like you.

  5. Since I’m on a Surface 4, I was able to use the touch screen. What worked for me was uninstalling the latest Win 10 update, which got installed a day before my keyboard started malfunctioning. Thanks!

  6. Your first suggestion, to uninstall the latest update, is hard to do without a functional keyboard. When I say “hard to do”, I mean impossible, since without a keyboard I cannot log in to Windows and thus cannot do anything.

    • Once you uninstall the keyboard and refresh hardware from the mouse, the keyboard will automatically be installed again. So there should be nothing to worry about.
