if your version of iconv does not support the -o parameter you can directly replace it with >> to use the shell redirection.

comment How can I count the line breaks in a folder recursively?
just replace MyTargetPath with what ever path you want, optional in double quotes. or change my code to use $MyTargetPath and run $MyTargetPath="path required" to set it.

comment Why do I have to press the key 4 times to get a '`' symbol?
OK so its software not hardware. Small possibility of virus/malware more likely somehting is trying to "help" you like a manufacture supplied background utility. Try disabling startup tasks and also see if it happens in Safe mode.

Stupid question but have you tried another keyboard? I am using 8.1 with a cheap Dell keyboard and see no problem.
