Hey everyone, I seem to not be able to use my keyboard arrow keys to scroll up and down on web pages. I know however, that my arrow keys work (they do in MS Word and other programs), but don't work here. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
My problem is when im playing a game (in my case im controlling a monkey) to move the monkey I have to use the arrow keys and when I pres left then let my finger off left it keeps going left, sometimes the fix was to press left then right but now when I press left then right it just keeps going right. same happens with up and down
i tried this with various other games and the problem persists
I was having similar problems. My up down arrows either wouldn't scroll in firefox or they would jump to the top and the bottom. So after researching, I just tried pressing function keys... and... voila, F7 did the trick. No idea why, but as suggested somewhere above, I'd start at F1 and go to the end (F12) one at a time and see if that does the trick.
I'm experiencing the same issue except it's only happening on my igoogle home page. When I click the down or up arrow, it's as if I'm using page up or page dn.
I tried the control panel > internet options > advanced > check "smooth scrolling" (it was checked, so I unchecked and rechecked). Still no joy.
Any other ideas?
