Question "prt sc" not working, but every other key takes a screenshot!


Nov 15, 2018
I'm on Windows 7.

Pressing the actual prt sc key does nothing. But half the other keys on the keyboard take a screenshot, along with their original function. Like pressing the letter H will type H as well as take a screenshot.

Here's what I've done so far to fix it:

1) Ran Malwarebytes

2) Ran Adwxleaner

3) Ran Avast antivirus

4) Ran sfc scannow

5) Uninstalled and installed keyboard driver

6) Removed the keyboard and cleansed the connector

7) Tested in Safe Mode (as rgd1101 suggested)

Still the same!

What's going on?
