What frustrates us most is the keyboard lag when gaming or working on the computer. In general, this could happen when using a wireless keyboard like a Logitech keyboard. If you’re experiencing the Logitech keyboard lag, kindly follow the tips below to sort it out.

  1. Check for hardware issues
  2. Update the Logitech keyboard driver
  3. Run the keyboard troubleshooter
  4. Check for corrupted system files
  5. Disable FilterKeys

Before we start troubleshooting, please disconnect or dis-pair your Logitech keyboard, and then restart your computer and re-connect or re-pair your keyboard. This would help when there’s a random bug causing your keyboard to lag. But if it’s still not working, proceed with the steps below.

1. Check for hardware issues

After doing a reboot for your computer, it’s recommended to check for hardware issues if your Logitech keyboard is still lagging.

For a wired Logitech keyboard, please check that the keyboard is connected correctly. Then, try connecting your keyboard to the USB port located at the back of your computer chassis.

For a wireless Logitech keyboard, we would recommend you replace or charge the battery to ensure a stable power supply.

Also, you can try connecting a new keyboard to your PC. If it’s working normally, the previous keyboard itself is the one to blame, and you should contact Logitech for further assistance.

2. Update the Logitech keyboard driver

After the hardware check, another thing you should do is to update the driver for your Logitech keyboard, since an up-to-date keyboard driver always ensures the best working performance and fewer bugs.

To update your keyboard driver, here’s what you can do (please note that the following screenshots are taken on Windows 11, but the instructions work on Windows 10 as well):

  1. On your keyboard, press the Windows key and X at the same time, select Device Manager.
  2. Double-click to expand the category Keyboards. Then right-click your Logitech keyboard driver and click Update driver (the name of the device can be different on your computer).
  3. Then click Search automatically for updated driver software.
  4. Wait for Windows to find the latest driver available for you.
  5. When the driver update is done, restart your computer for the change to take effect.
  6. Then check and see if the problem is fixed.

If Windows says that it’s already found the latest driver for you, so no newer drivers are found, then you should consider updating your Logitech keyboard driver in a different way with the help of Driver Techie.

3. Run the keyboard troubleshooter

If your Logitech keyboard is lagging still after a driver update, we recommend you use the Windows keyboard troubleshooter to detect and fix problems for you.

To do so:

  1. In the Search box, type troubleshoot and select Troubleshoot settings from the results.
  2. Click Other troubleshooters and find Keyboard, and then click the Run button.
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions to run the troubleshooter.

Hopefully, any problems will be reported and fixed for you. If your Logitech keyboard still lags, try the next tip.

4. Check for corrupted system files

Another possibility is that there are corrupted files or misconfigurations on your system, which cause your Logitech keyboard to lag. In this case, running the DISM tool should be considered. Here are the steps:

  1. On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key and R together to invoke the Run prompt, type cmd, and press Shift, Ctrl, and Enter together to launch the Command prompt.
  2. Paste the following command lines and press Enter to execute:
    DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth
    DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth
    DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

  3. Wait until the verification is 100% complete. The scan results will be shown after this process is finished.
  4. Reboot your computer.

Then, test your Logitech keyboard and check if the issue is resolved. If not, proceed with the next tip.

5. Disable FilterKeys

FilterKeys is an accessibility option that you can use to adjust keyboard repeat rates and ignore or slow down brief or repeated keys. In some cases, FilterKeys may fail to capture repeated keystrokes and cause your Logitech keyboard to lag. So, the last shot is to check if you’ve enabled FilterKeys.

To do so:

  1. On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key and R at the same time to invoke the Run prompt. Then, type Control Panel and hit Enter.
  2. Double-click Ease of Access Center.
  3. Then, scroll down the page until you see Make keyboard easier to use.
  4. Scroll down the list until you see “Turn on Filter Keys“. If it’s selected, uncheck the box.
  5. Click Apply and OK to save the change.

Now try typing a few words to see if the problem is resolved. We hope you find these troubleshooting tips useful. If you have any other questions, please feel free to comment down below.
