Hello,

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.



System Configuration: Windows / Chrome 86.0.4240.198
