@AaNa Do those keys work individually? Just the windows key? Or just the left or right arrow key? If yes, here's what you need to know:

Windows key + Left arrow or Right arrow > Only works when there's a window open on the screen > Move and resize the current window to the left or right half of the screen.


And Windows + D also requires open windows, it doesn't work, if you're already on the desktop screen.

That said, if the keys aren't working individually either, please try the below steps:


Check with an alternate user account or an external keyboard to check if all the keys on that work?


Clean the keyboard with compressed air (blow compressed air in the gaps between keys). This removes some lint and dust. 

Shut down the laptop, remove the battery and cable for a moment, press and hold the start button for 60 seconds

Replace the battery, restart the notebook,


if the issue persists, change the keyboard layout and check if it works: Click here for steps.

Also, run a hardware test to identify any issues with the keyboard: Click here for details (Interactive test) under component tests - keyboard.
