You can always do it with its Alt code: Alt+96 for the grave accent, and Alt+126 for the tilda.

If you want to use those accents in combination of other letters, you have mainly 3 solutions:

  • Use another key combination to change your layout/input language,
  • Learn by heart all alt codes for those accentuated letters,
  • Use a Autohotkey script to remap your keys to avoid the ` one.
