I'm working with a Windows 10 machine.

I'm using quite some keyboard shortcuts so my problem can be related with a wrong key combination: since this morning my keyboard button AltGr does not work anymore, I need to type Ctrl+Alt+key in order to type something like (@-sign in e-mail addresses, backticks,...).

Does anybody know how to enable this keyboard button again?

  • ALT-GR is part of a keyboard language. If it doesn't work, then you need to alter your keyboard layout language to a different one, for example United States International. If it worked before, then you likely switched to a different layout. The shortcut key for that is CTRL-SPACE or ALT-SHIFT – LPChip Sep 26 '16 at 12:48

In this post there is a similar issue:


They talk about using Alt+Enter or Ctrl+Enter to fix the problem.

  • Thanks, but I've tried both shortcuts keys (Ctrl+Enter and Alt+Enter), and none of them actually works. – Dominique Sep 26 '16 at 12:44
  • Close all open remote desktop connections and try again – Wollmich Oct 15 '19 at 10:21
