Keyboard shortcut ALT+F11 will not open the VBA Editor in Access 2016

Hello, logging on to a Virtual Desktop remotely for the first time and I notice that my MS Access 2016 will not accept the ALT+F11 Keyboard command to open the VBA Editor. I understand I can do this through the ribbon but I do prefer keyboard commands. Any idea why it wouldn't be working?

I am using my own keyboard, But the Alt key does work because alone, it does highlight ribbon shortcuts, and the function of the ALT key is not reassigned or anything.

Thanks

1. Check to make sure that special keys have not been disabled in the Options dialog.  These shortcut keys will not work in disable Use of  Special Keys is checked.

2.  Try Ctrl+G

Hello Dale, Gustov. So Special Keys is not disabled. CTRL+G does work. Thanks. But I'm curious is this an Office 365 Shortcut?

Do you have any code in your program that checks for keypress and ignores all but certain keycode values?

I didn't write much of this code but I am familiar with it and to my knowledge, no. The other thing is, when I'm in the office on my machine ALT+F11 works consistently on this database. What has changed is that I'm now logging in remotely to a virtual machine, and where I had Windows 7, the VM has WIndows 10.

Hmm...so I have a gaming keyboard and there's no FLock but, you got me thinking and I opened Access on my local machine and same behavior so its definitely something with my keyboard. I'll try updating the driver or troubleshooting with Razer (the mfgr) when I get time). Thanks!!
