My system is currently running Windows 8.1, and since the update, I have been encountering an odd problem.
I lock my system whenever I am not present (basic security), but when I come back to it, sometimes I cant enter my password.
I can enter capital letters into, but any other key pressed without
shift doesn't get entered. I have found the only way to remedy this is to go into the
Accessibility settings at the bottom right, start the
Narrator, hit the link twice (so it opens the Narrator Window), then close the Narrator, and I can enter my password fine. It also gets resolved if I click the "back" link to change User, then select my profile and I can enter my password again.
Does anyone know what is causing the problem? I think it might have something to do with another Window (or part of the Login Screen) being focus, and I usually hit
space to go from my pretty pictures to my Password entry, and that act is activating some linked procedure.
