Win 10 keyboard only works some apps

  xyzsimon 10:53 25 Mar 2020

Hey, I did a "clean install" on my PC at the weekend to try and get rid of some rubbish. I now have weird symptoms:

  • A keyboard which won't type in some places (Win10 search bar, MS Edge) but works fine in others (Chrome browser, MS Word/Excel)
  • MS Outlook won't start - it is running in Task Manager but no UI

Any help appreciated, Simon
