To insert the character "ë", I normally do Shift " and then e. However here at work whenever I hit Shift " it's inserted instantly, without me able to press the e or any other character. To insert this at work, I do Alt 0235. But I want the method I have at home, since this is a lot easier.

I believe this has todo with regional / language settings but I cannot find it. Any help is appreciated.

You should check what keyboard layout is installed at home through the Region and Language dialog:

Check what language you're using at home, then install that language on your work computer and select it as the default:

It's a bit different on XP, but could find it, yes. It needed a PC restart though to make it work. – Devator Jun 19 '12 at 9:20
