When i first got my Laptop,I could use the quote("") key on the Keyboard by just pressing (Shift + '')keys once and it would automatically put the cursor in-between the quotes but now i have to press the key-combination twice for me to get the quotes and it doesn't put the cursor automatically. Anybody know what the problem is?

    This sounds like you may have multiple input languages (or "languages") and keyboards configured, and you've somehow managed to get your keyboard into one of the languages that support "dead key" accents. Does other punctuation also require hitting the key twice? – Jeff Zeitlin Mar 21 '18 at 19:39

According to which:

The problem is in the installed keyboard (windows input service).

In your Control Panel > Region and Language > Keyboards and Languages

Select US Keyboard - International, (which is an input service that has the ugly autocomplete feature.)
