Press Ctrl+Shift at the same time. Toggles the French (blue) keys on & off. I found out after much tedious searching. Hope this helps you!

SOURCE: cannot get apostrophes or question marks

I just figured this out. Hold down your left shift key, then press CTRL. It may take a couple of times for it to work, but it will eventually.

VBScript compilation error ''800a0408''


The Symptoms you get The script does not execute as you had hoped. Instead you get a WSH message box.
The Cause of error 800A0408 Your VBScript contains an illegal character, often at the beginning of a line. It can happen if you copy the script from word, then paste into notepad. For example, to 'Rem out a line we need the apostrophe, which is ASCII character 39; however if you paste from word you may get ASCII 96 (Grave accent).
Note the clue Source: Microsoft VBScript compilation error, this means a syntax error in your script.
The Solutions Check the punctuation marks in your VBScript, particularly look out for apostrophes and commas that do not display correctly. The reference to Line: 1 Char 1, means that the very first symbol that is probably wrong.

Messed up keys


try hitting the left alt and the left shift button together, then try it out by pressing shift question mark. I had the exact same problem and i think you can alternate between french and english keys by hitting these two buttons together.
