Over the past 14 days or so, my up/dn scroll keys morphed to a state that they TAB back and forth as oppossed to scrolling up and down.
How can this issue be reproduced?
I do not have the tech knowledge to submit a visual example.
To have my 2 “arrow keys” revert back to their intended function.
Brave Version( check About Brave):
Version 1.38.111 Chromium: 101.0.4951.54 (Official Build) (64-bit)
I am using a DELL XPS 13 9360 laptop with Windows 10.
A layman’s description of the issue:
my laptop-keyboard’s scroll keys, i.e., arrow keys - pgup, pgdn no longer scroll, but now act just like the Tab key. They still work correctly on all other browsers I use Edge, Vivaldi, etc., but not on Brave. I suspect this may be a result of a Brave update, if not, can anyone guide me as to how to regain the straight forward scroll (non-tab-linked) functionality? I’ve tried many work-arounds I found on YouTube videos but none worked to correct the issue, i.e., reseting Brave preferences, Filter-key adj, etc,
I followed your instx but it did not correct the problem. The UP/DN arrow keys continue to tab rather than scroll. BTW, The first suggestion is for Android, not desktop; my issue is for Window 10 desktop as noted in the form submitted for this issue. Please advise if there is any other solution other than a drastic step of a reinstall of Brave. Jack
N.B. The UP/DN arrow keys do work correctly if the FN key is held down simultaneously. I prefer the original assignment, i.e., for the 2 keys to function as a scroll independently (w/o depressing the Fn key). Thx
I just created a pic. to help visualize the arrow-scroll-keys error. It works this way on every website but in the pic. I used the chrome-flags site to demonstrate the error with Brave on the right-side and a different browser on the left
Why not try asking the Google Chrome Community forum how to make the F7 key not revert after one application. They seem to know a lot more about the feature than the Brave Desktop gang. I wish I knew, but I am only a user and not a techie. Best of luck, you have my sincere sympathies. Jack
