    If it's that serious to warrant a reinstall you could try this first - Repair Install of Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade. You won't lose your data or have to reinstall your programs. And if it doesn't work than clean install.

    As always perform a full backup before any drive maintenance
    That was going to be my suggestion, Sygnus.

    Give us all the info you have, please!
    I looked at his "My Computer" and he only shows Desktop and Windows 10 x64.

    Click on Settings>System>About and you will see your Device specifications; mine are:

    Wynona,

    Is there any privacy implication/concern with providing your device ID and product ID?

    If there is, please feel free, of course, to delete your image.

    Once i receive your reply, I will go ahead and respond.

    Thank you. If I convince myself that I am about to embark on a re-installation of Windows, I can always try this first. I am likely, however, to just live with it.

    Once I get comments about the device and product ID, I will provide more information. My keyboard is an older (2012) MS Natural Keyboard. It's a desktop.

    I doubt you require Device ID and Product ID. As mentioned, desktop with an older (2012) MS Natural Keyboard. I have two monitors. I hope this helps.

    Nope, not that I can see in what I cut and pasted.

    Just don't leave anything that has your email address, or anything else that will actually identify you. Click on My Computer at the bottom of this page and you can see a complete listing of my desktop specs. What that accomplishes is to let potential helpers know exactly what your system consists for more accurate help.

    How would the keyboard know whether I am typing to Excel, Word, UltraEdit, or Dreamweaver?

    In other words, if the keyboard consistently works in some applications and consistently fails in others, is it the keyboard? My intuitive thoughts are that a keyboard either works or it doesn't.

    I have a Logitech K350 keyboard which has quite a few options. Because I've hit a wrong key on occasion, my keyboard went into cardiac arrest and didn't do anything correctly. So, it's worth a try if you have an extra keyboard.

    No, I don't even know how to do that.

    I didn't mean to, but something happened. I don't know how I straightened it out, though. Been a long time since I did that.

    Wow! I'm battin' a thousand today, on wrong replies! Sorry, Xaccell.
