Control + Slash is not working on Windows 10 with IntelliJ?

It is shown under Code --> Comment with line comment. However it is not working...

import java.util.*;

public class Messy {
    public   static void main(String[]      args){
    System.out.println( "four"       );     System.out.println("two");
    Please comment out this line and
    this line as well with a hotkey that does multi-line commenting
    List<String> numberWords = Arrays.asList("six", "seven", "eight", "nine");
    for (String numberWord:         numberWords) {
      // Use the sout shortcut to write out numberWord;

Just use the slash (Ctrl + ÷) on the numpad. it have to works if not when you installed IntelliJ you also installed NOT RECOMMENDED PLUGIN i think its called IdeaVim ( it mess your keyboard shortcuts :D )

or settup it in CTRL + ALT + A then search for KeyMap or CTRL + ALT + S
