    Over the past few days, I've noticed that the Windows Key combinations, such as WinKey+E to explore my computer and WinKey+M to see the desktop have stopped working. It doesn't appear to be a keyboard fault either on my laptop. The Virtual Keyboard works fine too.

    What I did discover is that when I locked my computer, then unlocked it, all of my attempts to use the shortcuts keys suddenly sprang into life, which meant I ended up with about 5 different Windows Explorer Windows! But that trick wasn't repeatable today.

    Any help on what could be causing this gratefully appreciated. As far as I know, I haven't installed anything recently, just the usual security updates.

    MB1, welcome to the Lounge,

    Have you tried to go to the PC manufacturers site and checking for updated drivers for the keyboard. How about the keyboard manufacturer's site for driver support. It could be something as simple as this.
