On Linux, the Compose key is a great way to enter many symbols. E.g.
- em-dash — by pressing Compose then - - -
- ö by pressing Compose then : o
- Euro € by pressing Compose then C =
(The Compose key function can be assigned to various keyboard keys, such as right/left Alt, right/left Windows key.)
I really miss the Compose key when using Windows. I've looked but so far haven't found any way to get equivalent Compose key functionality on Windows. Does anyone know of how to do it?
