    Keyboard does not work in Windows Store/Apps


    Solution: Win+R > taskschd.msc > Task Scheduler Library > Microsoft > Windows > TextServicesFramework. Right click MsCtfMonitor and choose Enable. Reboot your PC.

    Task missing? If you do not see the task, you can get it back by importing the following XML file as a task.

    http://files.cnblogs.com/files/asion/MsCtfMonitor.xml

    Just right click and save it to your desktop and then goto your Task Scheduler and in the top menu choose: Action > Import Task and choose the XML file. You can then delete the XML file and reboot your PC for it to take effect.

    Hello,

    My keyboard does not work within Windows Store and it's Apps. I cannot type anything in the search of the store, or within the Xbox App. I can right click and paste in information and click "Go" and that works just fine. But just no keyboard input works. Keyboard works fine everywhere else.

    I've googled the issue and I can't find ANY other people have this issue. I think it might be related to when I completely removed Cortana and SearchUI, but I am not sure.

    Any ideas of what might be wrong?

    For me there is also identical problem with not working keyboard / onscreen keyboard in Windows and metro apps. Tried much things, but nothing helps. Maybe someone knows here, how to fix this issue without reinstalling whole system.

    Even in Forza Horizon 3, I can't type anything when it asks to rename my custom blueprint race. It's definitely something with the Windows Store that's causing an issue.

    After hours of going through reverting my custom Windows 10 Tweaks, I isolated the problem. You need to set the TextServicesFramework Task to Enabled and then Reboot your PC and you'll be good to go!

    Win+R > taskschd.msc > Task Scheduler Library > Microsoft > Windows > TextServicesFramework. Right click MsCtfMonitor and choose Enable. Reboot your PC.

    Can't find the solution


    Wallboy, I am not able to find MsCtfMonitor, when I click TextServicesFramework nothing shows up. The box is empty, nothing is running. I hope you know the problem.
