On my new laptop, I see the following behavior new to me. If I press, e.g., the "-key, the '"' does not appear immediately. It changes how the next character appears, so "+a becomes ä, "+space becomes ", and so on. I guess, this functionality is called composition (but for me, it does not involve the Compose key)
This behavior is present across all applications. Furthermore, I have no application runing that provides it (like AllChars). Therefore, I guess it comes from the OS, i.e., Windows itself.
Is that right? How to control it? I couldn't find any switches. It is helpful, but some special characters I cannot produce, like the German sz. How to do that?
