I have moved from Win 10 to Win 11 and now my Microsoft wireless key board wont work although the wireless mouse works fine.

 

Things I have done.....

 

Installed new batteries.

 

Moved the dongle to different usb ports.

 

Made a Bill Gates doll.

 

 

 

A wired keyboard works fine.

 

Any suggestions on what to try next?

 

Thanks.





 I'm supposed to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder for me to find one now.

Do you have another computer to test it with?
