Since WIN 10 upgrade I can't use my keyboard to type in File Name box, must use touch screen keyboard instead. Microsoft can't find the solution. Anyone else?

Veröffentlicht

I've checked & my keyboard works EXCEPT to type in File Name box. Microsoft can't figure it out & this doesn't happen if I use Edge, only Firefox & Chrome. Have uninstalled & reinstalled WIN 10 Update & tried and older Firefox, but it still happens. If I want to attach a file to an email or otherwise select a file I either must scroll to it or use the onscreen "touch" keyboard. They suggested I ask here.

Sometimes a file name box is read-only and you can't type in it. If you click the "Browse..." field then a file picker window should open where you can select the file. You can also try to drag a file and drop it on the input field.

Actually I _can_ use the Browse. The file name box in the past let me type in a file name. Now if I try to type it turns into garbage. e.g. If I type: I'll it might say something like %uwx. We even checked with a different keyboard and the problem remains. My files are fairly extensive, so Browse can be a lot to wade through.

You can't type in a file input element. If browsing takes too long then use drag and drop, that should work as a workaround.

These work-arounds are just that, better than not at all, but not as good as it had been when I could type the name of the file sought.

I hesitate to mark it solved as it can be a large amount of files to wade through. Prior to this I could type the file name.
