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

Hello, you may have accidentally turned on scroll lock. On a Windows PC, to turn scroll lock on and off, press the Scroll Lock Key. It's typically above the arrow keys, or to the right of the function keys.

If your keyboard doesn't have a designated Scroll Lock Key, go into the settings on your PC, and go to Ease of Access > Keyboard . Here you should be able to click on the on screen keyboard to turn it off/on.

Another alternative is pressing Command + F14

Regards
