Microsoft is still trying to deal with the Wi-Fi connectivity issue affecting plenty of Surface RT and Pro tablets, but the company now has to fix one more problem.

Several users are reporting issues affecting the Windows key that doesn’t seem to work at random times. Microsoft has already confirmed the bug and promised a fix, most likely in the upcoming Patch Tuesday update cycles.

“We are aware that the Windows Key does not work every time and we are checking into it. Thanks for the feedback, I'll add your information to the documentation I have for this issue,” a Surface team member said in a short post on the Microsoft support forums.

Even though it was first reported in November, no fix is available at this point, so the company is most likely working on a patch as we speak. Expect more information on the next month Patch Tuesday release.
