Windows 7: Control A combination doesn't work (Games and select all)

Control A combination doesn't work (Games and select all)

Hi,
I recently noticed that my ctrl+a doesn't work. All the other ctrl combinations do! Ctrl+a doesnt allow me to "select all" while word processing or use this combination in games (first person shooters).

I have a logitech G15 and other keyboards and they all dont allow me to use ctrl+a. I have tried different versions of keyboard drivers for my G15 and without. I plugged the keyboard into another W7 and it works

Im assuming this is an issue with my OS now.

I know reinstalling windows is a option but want that to be the last resort as i only reformatted last month(i think it only started occurring when i reformatted)

EDIT: I have fixed my issue - it turns out my user account was corrupted, so I had to make a new one and copy all my documents folder over!

Hi richyo and welcome to Seven Forums.

Glad it is fixed for you. If you computer is corrupt maybe you should run the sfc /scannow command here is how: SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

I made control + a an hotkey in skype! wow there is a major flaw for skype right there! disables that combo for games and select all or probably anything else

Pressing “Ctrl+A” on the keyboard to “select all” doesn’t work,
Pressing “Ctrl+A” on the keyboard to “select all” doesn’t work, I’m wondering why the “Ctrl+A” doesn’t work and all the files are not selected. What might be the issue? Which settings should I change to let it work back as regular? Thank you

When right-clicking on files I notice that it only selects them (that is, brings up the context menu I'd expect for the thing I tried to click) when I actually click on the text of the filename or the preview/icon itself, and not just the surrounding area. For example, when I mouse over something...
