    Ctrl + V Doesn't work


    Just Ctrl + V doesn't work

    (everything else works, Ctrl C, Ctrl Shift + V works, Shift ins)

    Uninstalling Drivers didn't work.

    Are we talking Laptop/Desktop? Built in keyboard/wired/wireless?

    If you can unplug the keyboard try a different one.

    Desktop. Had same issue with old keyboard. Both wired, but they are both razer products. I'll try one more keyboard to be safe.

    The other thing would be if you installed some utility that commandeered control v maybe without announcing it. Unfortunately on Windows whoever hooks last wrests control even from the system. There is no API call that will tell which hotkey combinations are not owned by some user process. There are some utilities that by brute force methods say which hotkeys are not available but as far as I know they cannot identify which program gobbled up which key combo.

    Yeah, I heard something about that. It never really bothered me until now, (Since I am a trader in several games). I might try an autohotkey script to paste with ctrl v and hope it works.
