One key not working in RDP

One key not working in RDP

One key not working in RDP

Well heres a winner.
1 user ( no one else has this problem, including me) RDPs  into a satellite office pc. When remoted into that pc and they are in any app, Word, notepad, etc, the letter U  does not work.
It does work when she flips back to her local pc.
I have swapped the keyboard and tried it from my pc remoted in, no problems at all, the U key works.

This takes the cake for sure.

Thoughts, ideas?

RE: One key not working in RDP

No idea, but every so often when I'm RDP to my satellite office PC, the Delete key activates the CTL-ALT-DEL Windows Security box (lock computer, task manager, etc.)  This is intermittent and infrequent though.

RE: One key not working in RDP

I had this happen to 2 of my users last week. It was the letter D. One user just rebooted and it started working again. The other user, even after a reboot it still didn't work. But if you hold down Shift it'll work.
I changed the settings for how the keyboard worked in the RDP settings. No change, so I changed it back.. and it started to work again.
