Can't use arrow keys to scroll in Chrome 0 Recommended Answers 20 Replies 111 Upvotes

My keyboard arrows stopped working all of a sudden to scroll web pages. They work fine in Firefox and Opera. I've disabled extensions, made sure Chrome was up to date, switched smooth scroll on and off so far with no luck. The arrows work on the Chrome settings page and other admin-type pages, but not on any web pages and I've tried many different sites.

Same problem here.

Arrow keys do scroll on chrome extension pages on web store, not anywhere else, though when I return form achrome extension tab the "normal" website tabs arrow keys work for like 1 sec and then not.

Firefox works fine.

When in Incognito it works fine in Chrome.

Just noticed the problem this morning. Also, I realized that in gmail I can't open (expand email from inbox list) with enter. Same thing, works in Firefox, works in incognito.

Suspecting it's some extension messing Chrome up

Yeah,

Just disabled all extensions and it's all ok. Gonna turn all one by one to find out which one is to blame

So,

The culprit in my case was the Web Clipper for Evernote extension. Disabled it and everything was OK

I am having trouble getting my laptop mouse to work, but I did get my keyboard to scroll.  I don't remember the exct thing I did to get it to work.  I know I used my control key in conjunction with the light blue icons printed on the function keys on the very top of the key board.  I know i started with the cntrl f6 key.  At some point, I also cntrl esc.  Again, I know I used those control keys in sequence.  I may have stroked other key pattersn, but I wasn't logging them.  How does one log their actions in figuring out things in windows 10 pro?
