You’re typing away on your computer like you do every day, but all of a sudden your keyboard is on its secondary set of characters (and your “?” is now “È”). What to do?
Every other day or so we’ll be typing along on the computer keyboard and and you go to use the quote key (“) and it’s “ or È. Huh?
Or when you press the question mark (?), it shows up as É on the screen.
Accidentally, you’ve activated the second set of characters on your keyboard — perhaps another language — and you don’t know how to get it back to normal.
Here’s a trick that’s worked for us:
Simply hold down the CTRL key with your thumb and tap the SHIFT key at the same time.
Voila, it works, eh?
This is probably what you did to get you in this mess to begin with.
You may need to do this twice if your computer is set up for three different character profiles.
But it’ll work.
