USB keyboard Ctrl key not working in Windows running on a Macbook Pro

Hello

I have plugged a standard USB (i.e. non-mac) keyboard in to a Macbook Pro, which is running Windows 7/boot camp, and the Ctrl key does not work. I can't select more than one item, I can't use the keyboard shortcut to copy, paste etc.

Any ideas please?

Cheers

The most likely cause is keyboard. Can you try a different keyboard?  That would be the easiest test.

Did you install the Bootcamp drivers?  Are both control keys giving you a problem?  Does the keyboard work in OSX?

Bootcamp and its drivers are for Mac keyboards.

Here are the equivalents for the Windows keyboard:
