    Right arrow key not working on my user, but does work on other ones.


    I am using a ThermalTake eSports Challenger Ultimate Gaming keyboard. Everything worked fine for the first few months, until for some reason the right arrow key was not working. I reinstalled drivers. I unplugged and plugged keyboard back in, used a USB keyboard. Then I found out that it would work on the login screen, and on other users. I found out that it wasn't working on my user for some reason. I even used KEYBOARD tester, on MY user, and it showed the key being pressed, but no SOUND as a response. I went to another user, the key was pressed, it was shown, and it did the tick sound meaning it worked. I don't know what to do, and it annoys me. My main account was made a "child account" or child protected account, but then I set it to ADMIN. Typing from the ALT account right now. Some games that use the right arrow key are unplayable, like UNDERTALE. I even plugged a PS4 controller and it wasn't moving right either. Someone help

    Normally when something does not work in say, user account A, but works in all other user accounts, that is the indication that user account A is corrupted.
    Create another admin account > logon to it > and test the right arrow key.
    If it works in the new admin account, then it is time to go back to account A > backup files you want to keep > delete account A.

    No, No.
    Please do not mark it as Solved.
    You only heard one guy's opinion.
    Wait a bit.
    Someone may have a better idea.
