The keyboard keys do not work, but the touchpad works well

January 2021 Update:

We now recommend using this tool for your error. Additionally, this tool fixes common computer errors, protects you against file loss, malware, hardware failures and optimizes your PC for maximum performance. You can fix your PC problems quickly and prevent others from happening with this software:

  • Step 1 : Download PC Repair & Optimizer Tool (Windows 10, 8, 7, XP, Vista – Microsoft Gold Certified).
  • Step 2 : Click “Start Scan” to find Windows registry issues that could be causing PC problems.
  • Step 3 : Click “Repair All” to fix all issues.


This is a typical case where, for some reason, one of the special keys such as filter, sticky, mouse buttons is activated. These keys can be normalized via the Ease of Access parameters. This setting ensures that repeated or short keystrokes are ignored. This gives the impression that the keys do not work. Self-adhesive keys, on the other hand, allow you to press one key at a time.

If the touchpad does not work, but the buttons.

Another simple troubleshooting. Your touchpad is probably off. You need to make sure it’s on. The parameters that can be changed may vary slightly depending on the hardware.

For Touch/ Type Cover 2, Power Cover, Type Cover for Surface Pro 3 / Surface 3 / Surface Pro 4 and Cover with Fingerprint ID, go to Start and select Settings > Devices > Touchpad. Check if it is off, if so, turn it on.

If you do not have these models, but Touch Cover (previous model), Type Cover (previous model), Type Cover (previous model) and Surface Pro Signature Type Cover on Surface Pro, Surface Pro 2 and Surface Pro 3, you must use Surface Trackpad Settings app. You can download it from the Microsoft Store if it is not installed.

Sensitivity problem: The touchpad does not react immediately after typing

Windows 10 has ensured that the touchpad does not move the cursor if you accidentally press your palm against the touchpad while typing. Technically speaking, the sensitivity to such scenarios is still low. If this happens to you, the touchpad sensitivity has changed. To change the sensitivity.

Go to Settings > Devices > Touchpad. Under Touchpad Sensitivity, select Low Sensitivity or Highest Sensitivity.

If you are planning a game where you need both buttons and the touchpad to react quickly, you should set it too high.

You can’t see what you enter on the screen?

Don’t worry, you don’t need new glasses, not yet! Windows 10 Keyboard supports tons of languages, and if keyboard and computer settings don’t match, text becomes invisible.

  • Select Start then Settings > Time & Language > Region & Language > Region & Language.
  • Make sure that the language you use on your keyboard (the input language) matches the language you use on your PC (the display language).
  • Then select the language, select Options and make sure the correct keyboard layout is available. To make sure your language is available for Windows, see the list of language packs.
