BACKSPACE or arrow keys do not work in MMC on a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2

ISSUE

BACKSPACE or arrow keys do not work in MMC on a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2.

Consider the following scenario:

  • You have a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2.
  • You customize a Microsoft Management Console (MMC) that has the Group Policy Management Console (GPMC) snap-in.
  • You select any Group Policy object (GPO), and then you click the Settings tab in the details pane.
  • You select another node in the console tree, and then you use the BACKSPACE or arrow keys to perform some operations.

In this scenario, the BACKSPACE or arrow keys do not work. You have to use the mouse to perform operations.

ENVIRONMENT

Windows Server 2008 R2
