So recently my laptop keyboard arrow keys stopped working, I use them to scroll up and down pages and this is very inconvenient for me so I'm asking for some help. I can usually just hold an arrow down and it will scroll, but now I have to click the button continuously for it to even move an inch. This may be due to the age of my laptop.

This has been bugging me for weeks!!! you are a life saver!!! every single other place was talking about scroll lock, or was instructions for a smart phone. Apparently, I'm too dumb to notice a simple solution, and you happened to be smarter than my machine. Thank you very much!!!! : )
