Steps to reproduce

Running the example found in many remote testing tutorials;

-Navigate to via



-Select the search field by

{"using":"css selector","value":"*[name=\"q\"]"}

-Then invoke the sendKeys command from a WebDriver client using;

{"value":["w", "e", "b", "d", "r", "i", "v", "e", "r"]};

Windows 10 Edge driver receives the message successfully. That is they are printed in the console like;

08:30:44.569 INFO - Executing: [send keys: 0 [[EdgeDriver: MicrosoftEdge on ANY (A2D87921-604C-4793-BEF8-BC44E5D512B7)] -> css selector: *[name="q"]], [w, e, b, d, r, i, v, e, r]])

But the “i” character is not entered into the text field (only webdrver) when the only keyboard in the system is "Turkish Q". Setting "English (US)" as the only keyboard does not result in the same behaviour, instead all characters are printed (as webdriver).
