Uninstall Latest Downloaded Update
The first thing you can do is 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 expected.
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 the latest and uninstall the update by right clicking on the particular update. After uninstalling, rebooting your system, I hope your keyboard will work properly again.
If this won’t solve your problem, go to the next solution.
Install the Keyboard Driver
The keyboard may not work due to a driver problem. So update your keyboard driver manually to fix the problem. Go to the Start Menu and type Device Manager. You can find the keyboard from the list. And expand it. Right click on the driver and select the option “Update the driver.”
Go to the start menu and type Device Manager. Find the Keyboard from the list. And expand it. Right click on its driver and select the option for ”update the driver”.
Two options will appear, go to the second one and click on it.
Now select the “Let me pick…” option available at the bottom of the window. Click Next to go further.
You will now have a list of compatible drivers for your keyboard device. Select it and click on the Next button.
Now it will take a few seconds to install the driver. You’ll get the confirmation window about the successful driver installation. Restart your system after installing the driver.
You may also want to disable driver updates in Windows 10 so that all drivers keep 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 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 activation of this feature can also lead to 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”. Then uncheck the Checkbox for Filter Keys. Close all the windows. Restart your system and hopefully your problem will be gone.
