Keybord makes wrong action

Dears,

i have following issue. Since a couple of days, my keyboard or lets say Prepar3d thinks i am pushing keys on the numpad, but i am pushing buttons like the arrows and Pos1, page up/down, end and so on, but Prepar3d thinks i am pushing keys on the numpad. Outside Prepar3d in Word for example, the keyboard does fully normal.

Is there any configuration in how Prepar3d is reading the keyboard.
I use the arrow buttons to move around. But once i push arrow up, Prepar3d thinks its Numpad (8) so it starts to pitch the machine down and its moving my view, so it does both actions. Pageup is like 9 pagedwon is like 3, pos1 is like 7 end is like 3 and so on.

Cheers
Pascal

Is your Num lock on or off? Do you have your keys correctly mapped in your simulator controls?

The keys are 100% correctly mapped.

Numlock is on, but Numlock has nothing to do with the arrow keys nor the section of those 6 buttons above the arrows.

Scroll Lock can affect the arrow keys.

Hello,

Are you seeing this issue both in Prepar3D and in the Controls UI? If you set a key assignment and press Up, what does it assign in the textbox? What does it assign if you press num 8?

I noticed wrong behavior in the the sim and now in the Control UI the whole block left of the NumPad is decoded as Numpad, e.g. UpArrow is decoded as "8(NUMPAD)" and Pos1 is decoded as "7(NUMPAD)".

The numpad is decoded as n(NUMPAD).

I'm on 4.4 (can't go to 4.5 because Fslabs does not yet support HF1).
My keyboard is a Logitech K260, so old and nothing special.
