    Annoying problem if you rely 100% on keyboard shortcuts! I had the same problem and the fix is very easy. You will need to uninstall your keyboard driver and restart your computer and your CTRL keys will function once again. To do this:

    1) Click Start
    2) Control Panel
    3) Printers and Other Hardware
    4) Keyboard
    5) In the Keyboard Properties window, click Hardware
    6) Click Properties
    7) Click Driver
    8) Click Uninstall, click OK
    9) Restart your Computer

    can you restart your pc and check if that resolves the issue?

    This change has been driving me crazy for a while now because it doesn't work the same as it did in W7/8

    I found that if I hold CTRL + C then left click I can select files individually.
    To paste I just left click to choose paste from the pop-up.
    I don't believe this was the same as it was in Windows past.

    I've never heard of that kind of feature/behaviour - was it present in older windows like xp?
