My Logitech wireless keyboard stopped working in Chrome and Opera, well mostly stopped, some keys like spacebar and backspace work and the f-keys but everything works in Edge and other apps? P.S. The wireless mouse works fine on all browsers.

unplug and re plug the device restart the pc make sure your drivers or updated
Run Hardware and Device Troubleshooter

  1. Press Windows Key + R, type Control Panel.
  2. Type Troubleshooting in the search bar, click on Troubleshooting.
  3. Click on Hardware and Sound, click on Hardware and Devices.
  4. Follow the steps from the wizard to run the Troubleshooter.
Thank you, I just did this and it didn't show any problems.

Do what techienerd1 suggested, but this time before you do remove the keyboard from device manager.
only reinsert the usb after the reboot and allow windows to do its thing.
If you have Ccleaner installed run it before you reboot, to remove any leftover drivers
For boot purposes you will need access to a corded or alternate keyboard to avoid
not being able to login if your PC is password protected.
Or you can remove the password protection before you restart, just reapply the password protection after you re-add the keyboard

The issue is the keyboard works to login, work in Edge and messengers, just does not work with chromium based browsers from what I'm seeing, thanks for the suggestions.

I understand, what I think is happening is that the drivers are outdated or corrupt, a fresh install of the keyboard
will fix this. MS will add it back after the reboot and apply new drivers, even update them if any are available.
Good luck and keep us informed.

Just realized even a wired usb keyboard does not work in chrome either. Unplugged everything, removed all the keyboards from device manager, restarted and plugged everything back in, drivers installed, no keyboards work in chrome?

Solved! HitmanPro.Alert service is the problem, I did a clean boot and keyboard worked fine, I did a normal boot and went through all the non MS services and one at a time stopped them, tried chrome, then restarted the services, when I stopped HitmanPro.Alert service, keyboards work fine in all browsers. I will contact Surfright! Thanks for all the suggestions!

The final solution!!! There was a conflict with Zemana AntiLogger, turned off Identity Protection in ZAL and turn back on HitmanPro.Alert service and all is well:) didn't need to contact Surfright.

it sounds to me like zemana and HMPA were both trying to encrypt your keyboard input at the same time. disable encrypt keyboard in one of them, and everything should be fine.
