How to Fix: Windows WASD Keys Reversed with Arrow Keys

By  on  

This past weekend I had the opportunity to be what every father wants, if only for a moment: the "cool dad". My wife was out of town and my youngest son wanted to play PUBG. I caved in, taught him the basic FPS key binds, and he was having a great time. While he was fragging out, he pressed a bunch of random keys and ended up changing movement buttons. Suddenly the traditional WASD movement keys were useless and the arrow keys triggered movement.

Of course, this was a degradation of player experience. After struggling to figure out what my son did, I found the solution.

To restore the WASD keys as movement keys, press the FN+W key combination. You'll switch back to WASD keys for movement and be back on top of your game!

  1. As a kid, I used to prefer QAOP for the movement keys on the ZX Spectrum.
