Re: can't use the letter K to get from link to link
After I sent my message yesterday, you said the problem doesn't occur in Edge. Before you do anything else, test to see if this is a problem specifically and only in Internet Explorer. You said it doesn't occur in Edge. Try Firefox or Chrome and see if the problem is present. If it isn't, then this is evidently a problem with Internet Explorer being corrupted in some way. At that point, you can ask here about how to repair and/or reinstall Internet Explorer and see if either solution helps.
If you can't solve the problem in either of those two ways, and if it only affects Internet Explorer, then, with Chrome and Firefox as options and Edge becoming increasingly accessible and Internet Explorer becoming increasingly old, the next question is whether it's worth solving the problem. People may have other solutions to try but a reset, or whatever the correct term of Windows is may be something to try. I don't know if you should do the reset that removes everything or the one that keeps your files and programs on the machine.
I think he did a clean install of windows 10 so I lost all my files except for the music I have on my external hard drive.
What did you have repaired on the computer? Did the tech do anything other than repair just what you asked? Did he update anything or do any other work?
Also, and not necessarily related to the question, you might be able to reset, I'm not sure what the correct term is in Windows 10, Windows and tell the reset to leave all your programs. But that would need discussion by others because I don't know enough about that option to do more than suggest it as a possibility.

That's the weirdest thing I've ever encountered. Wish I knew how to solve it.
Somehow, you're numlock then is getting turned on.
That's really weird!
