Also what OS are you running? Are you running the English version? Do you have a tablet connected to your machine?

Hi Eric,

Windows comes in various versions. "The latest OS" doesn't tell us if you're running Win7, Win8, or something else.

What other applications are you running? It sounds like you have another program intercepting your keyboard commands. Are you using any scripting tools? A non-standard mouse or other pointing device? A non-English keyboard (they're fine, but you need to set them up correctly)?

Are you having similar problems in other programs? Which ones? Are some keyboard shortcuts working in Photoshop?

We need a LOT more information to help you diagnose this problem.

Thanks,
David

So something on your system is intercepting key commands and not correctly forwarding them to the application.

Check your system preferences, and settings in any utility programs you use.

Nope, we don't know what is wrong with your system - so we don't know what specifically to look for.
