I have a Logitech MX5500 Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard // Mouse Combo running on Windows 10 PRO 64-Bit OS.
I Updated to the Latest Set-point Software 6.67 after that my DELETE Key would no longer function. So I backed-up and Un-installed
that latest Update, and re-installed it's predecessor unfortunately still nada ??
So I thought perhaps it was a OS Issue, so I contacted MS Online Support Forum and went through a Diagnostic they couldn't find anything wrong with my Windows.
They suggested going to Logitech...well here it is almost 2 months later and no resolution...
I tested the Keyboard on another computer and it worked fine.
Of course We all know about having a working Delete Key.
Keyboard is Out-of-Warranty. I had an extended Warranty and it expired too.
Any ideas on HOW TO Fix this? I really can't afford a New Keyboard at this time.

Have you considered remapping the key with a 3rd party app like Keytweak? I know it's not a fix, but you have tried everything I would have to this point. Or you can wait till someone with more keyboard/registry/OS experience replies.

If it was me, I would re-map it to the 'Insert' key. I don't know of anybody who actually uses this one, and it has the advantage of being right next door to the 'Backspace' key, and immediately above the 'Delete' key. So it's in the part of the keyboard you're used to accessing for the 'Delete' key.....it's not as though you'd need to get used to a new location, or anything like that.

 

However, using Linux as I do, I can't actually make any recommendations for Windows software to carry out the re-mapping, I'm afraid. Sorry!

Have you tried another keyboard with your computer? If so, does it have the same problem. If it does, then that does suggest it is some sort of issue with your keyboard, not the computer.
