My keyboard left alt is acting like my windows key and vice versa. I need to know how to fix it because I play rust and using Left Alt is a MUST.

What setting did you apply?

Did you try reinstalling the driver?

Also - late thought:

Use "WIN" + "I" to access the Settings screen.

Check both "Gaming" and "Ease of Access" for any existing shortcuts. There may be a conflict there.

My keyboard has a shortcut with FN+SPACE for 5 seconds and resets everything on the keyboard. And I'm gonna reinstall driver now.

Hardware:

Do you have another known working keyboard you can test in place of your RK71

Are you able to test your RK 71 on another known working computer?

Determine if the problem follows the keyboard or stays with the current host computer.

When I go to device manager on this PC it shows 3 keyboards but all are named HID Keyboard and not my keyboard model. I can try plugging into the laptop in a few. Would there be a way to plug it in on my school chromebook and still have the same results.
Also I think its worth noting that I did spill some liquid on the keyboard a few days ago but everything is working perfect besides the one key which would be odd for just one to not work after an event like that.

Work with the laptop first.

What I find odd is that the two keys (WIN and Left Alt) seem to have "changed places".

I am still wondering about some accidental mis-configuraton via the fn key and another key.

Try the keyboard on the laptop.

If the problem follows the keyboard, then try again on the Chrome - determine if the problem remains.
