    Default Keyboard volume keys not working in windows 8

    hey, you all

    This morning i experienced a weirder thing that i found two pairs of volume shortcut keys on the keyboard both have stopped working suddenly.
    i am using windows 8 64 bit.
    The only way I can adjust the volume is through the system tray.

    with my own experience i can not explain this, so i am here for help.
    does anyone know a way around this problem? any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Have you rebooted your computer with Windows 8 64 bit to try again? if not try it. If yes, and the problem remains unfixed, pls follow the steps below:

    Start--Enter regedit--Find HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Policies\ in the Regedit--Create an item named as System, if there is one originally, you do not need to create.-- Change the value of DWORD to 0 in DisableTaskMgr. And then reboot your computer.
