Windows 10: Up-Down and Left-Right Arrows Only move one space at a time

    Up-Down and Left-Right Arrows Only move one space at a time

    Up-Down and Left-Right Arrows Only move cursor one space at a time. Takes forever to move the cursor anywhere.

    With text function there is no repeat
    EXAMPLE Typical... I had to push the right arrow key 7 times for the word EXAMPLE
    Tried windows troubleshooting and got nothing useful
    Thanks for any suggestions

    Does your space bar work properly?

    Maybe your keyboard drivers are messed up?

    With some software (text editors, Word, File Explorer) you can use "Ctrl + Left Arrow" or "Ctrl + Right Arrow" to move to the start of the next word.

    You can also include the Shift key to select text (e.g. "Ctrl + Shift + Left Arrow" or "Ctrl + Shift +Right Arrow").

    It works in the text input boxes here too. :)
