A friend has an HP Pavilion laptop running Windows 8 and there is something that causes it to do nothing if you type a quotation mark until you type the next character, at which point it displays the quotation mark and the other character.
This happens in e.g. Firefox, Notepad, cmd.exe etc. and with both the single and double quote characters.
I don't know what causes this and am having trouble searching for information on this behaviour.
How do I turn off this annoying behaviour?
Edit: Sorry, right after posting this I did some more searching and found this: My windows keyboard is being "clever" with the quote keys - how can I stop it?
