Hi there! Suddenly my...

Hi there! Suddenly my keyboard will not allow me to use the tab, or enter to move to the next field on my QuickBooks. I can only enter by using my mouse! I replaced the batteries, to no avail. Help!

Technician's Assistant: What's the make and model of your computer? And have you had problems with this keyboard in the past?

No problems before, I have a Dell XPS Computer ?

Technician's Assistant: Have you installed any updates recently?

None that I am aware of, unless the auto update did something.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Computer Expert to know before I connect you?

None that I can think of.. Thanx

I wiuld prefer not to. I ga e amreasy been ccharged $48 and have nothing. This is a simple question that if the keyboard had cpme with a manual, I could look it up. I thought I was getting Logitech support, not a 2-3 party business.

Thank you. I feel like I must have accidently pushed a button or something that made it stop allowing the tab and enter and arrow keys to not work. IDK
