If you’re using a Windows computer and your keyboard is acting up, such as keys not working or sticking, resetting it can often solve the problem. Here’s how to reset a keyboard on a Windows computer:
- Press the Windows key + X to open the Power User Menu.
- Select Device Manager from the list.
- Locate the keyboard you want to reset, right-click on it, and select Uninstall device.
- Follow the prompts to complete the uninstallation process.
- Restart your computer. Windows will automatically reinstall the keyboard driver.
Note that if your keyboard uses a proprietary driver, you may need to reinstall it manually from the manufacturer’s website. If you’re unsure which driver to download, check the model number of your keyboard and look for drivers specific to that model.
After resetting the keyboard, test it to make sure the issue has been resolved. If the problem persists, consider checking for updates to your device’s operating system or contacting your keyboard manufacturer for further assistance.
