Arrows keys scrolling, not playing

6 posts

When I play a flash game, the arrow keys scroll my browser page instead of playing the game. I have tried clicking the game to focus it, nothing changes. For some reason when I hold shift or control or alt, then the buttons work like they should. I would rather not switch browsers when I want to play games, and as far as I know, this isn’t ‘sticky keys’. So any help offered is much appreciated :)

I’m guessing it’s caused by lag.

First of all what browser are you using? Also it’s important to click on the game to make sure that the game cotrolls with your keys, if that doesn’t work then it might be an issue with your current browser, Though knowing what it is might help us a bit

My browser is google chrome, and I’m pretty sure it’s not caused by lag. I’d rather not switch to firefox when I want to play games.

Does it only do this for Chrome?

Yeah it works on Firefox, Chrome has done this to me before as well. Don’t know what’s changed though.
