So, I recently installed Visual Studio Code(1.40.0) on Windows 10. Everything was working fine as I was working around to see how to run Python Code, I installed Python extension, pylint, Auto PEP-8 formatter, code-runner extension and I was being able to run code just fine using keyboard shortcut Ctrl-Alt-N. Then I also tried to see if I could use MSVC compiler to run C code and it wasn't to my satisfaction of VSCode, but then all of a sudden the keyboard shortcut to run code stopped working.
Now if I press Ctrl-Alt-N, all it gives in the editor window, is this symbol 'ṇ'.
I have tried reinstalling VSCode, deleting base configuration files(.json), reinstalling python extension, but problem still persists. One more thing I was thinking about was that I updated pip from the VS terminal, but I am not sure if it was at that point that the shortcut stopped working. I can run code fine using the run code icon or from command bar, but cannot do the same with the shortcut. Can anyone help out?
Update: I even tried re-configuring the keyboard shortcut, but it won't take Ctrl-Alt-N from the user, it defaults to 'n'.
