I have a problem with my keyboard layout. When I bought my new keyboard, I set the Windows layout to US International cause it has US layout but I still need to type international characters.
Everything worked just fine as I wanted it to, that is. For example, I had to press AltGr+E to type
é and pressing '+E resulted in
'e and not
The problem is, I don't know how but this just changed 10 minutes ago, and now if I press '+E, it types
é and not
'e, as I want. I did some research and found out this is what "dead keys" do, and unfortunately it is not how I want my keyboard to work.
I read a lot of people suggesting to use the Microsoft keyboard layout creator or just switching to the US layout to disable the dead keys, but, unless I just got crazy, I can assure you all I was using the international layout WITHOUT dead keys just till 10 minutes ago.
I am not confusing ' Apostrophe
and ` Grave Accent (backtick).
I am 100% sure, because my language has a lot of apostrophes followed by vowels, so if this was happening before I would have recognized – typing, for example,
límbuto instead of
l'imbuto. It is annoying.
Please, does someone know if there is some way to disable this dead keys feature in the US International layout?
