Ctrl or Shift to select

Every time I press control or shift to try and select file etc, my cursor just freeze. Releasing ctrl or shift and cursor is fine. I had this problem before but I can’t remember what I did to get it working again.
Any ideas please?

In general Alt+key opens a menu whilst Ctrl+key is a command (eg print, save etc).

In Device Manager, check to see if the keyboard is working properly.

You could try Uninstalling it in Device Manager and then rebooting - Windows should Find New Hardware and reinstall the drivers.

Changed batteries in keyboard (though no indication of low battery), changed channel and all was well. Many thanks for your replies.
