Windows 7: Ctrl+arrow keys doesn't work

Ctrl+arrow keys doesn't work

I'm new to this forum. I encounter a problem recently. My keyboard shortcut: Ctrl+[left/right] arrow key doesn't work in any of my editors like: Microsoft word 2007; Microsoft wordpad; Open office writer and Abiword-I use this key combination for move between words in my word processors.
Because of this problem is general in all of my editors I think this is not a software specific issue and belongs to my Win 7.
so please guide me about that.

Hi, and welcome to the forums

Firstly, please don't start multiple threads asking for the same assistance as we will get around to helping.

Secondly, i've just checked and all seems to be ok on my Word 2010, have you made changes to the options within Word at all?

What happens when you press CTRL+ALT+DEL ?

Have you tried using the other CTRL key?
