This "input-method" is a feature that is used in some non-English languages, to easily generate characters like 'C-cedilla'.

Click Start
Click Control Panel
Click Regional Settings
Set your Input Language to "English-US", to make the keyboard work "one-graphic-for-one-key-press".

Hey, how do you enter minutes into a TI-84? (I'm doing problems with degrees, and one has minutes added onto the degrees)


The notation for minute is a single quotation, ' . To access this symbol, press the 2nd key, then the Angle key. The single quotation mark is the second option on the menu that comes up after pressing 2nd+Angle.

The symbols on my Dell L100 Keyboard do not work consistently in MS Word. Today I cannot get the quotation marks to work. The other day the question mark didn't work. It seems to only effect the ones...


It seems like you may have a strange language setting for your keyboard. Try going to Control Panel, and selecting language. It should look similar to this: snowyrat_1.jpg
There should be a tab labled something to the effect of "Change Keyboards or Other Input Methods." Select that, and then select "Change Keyboards" You'll get a menu that looks something like this: snowyrat.png
Select "Add" and scroll down to "English (United States)" Select "US(Default)" and click ok. Select US as your keyboard, and the problem should be fixed. If that's not the problem, then it may be a setting in MS Word. Hope this helps!

When I press apostrophe quotes they don't appear. But when I press the button a second time, then I get double ( "" ) and have to backspace to get single quotations ( " ) How do I fix this?


Download the Microsoft settings utility for this keyboard and check through the options settings, especially for "smart quotes." The smart quote, if enabled, may not show up at either end of the quoted phrase until you press the apostrophe/quote key the second time; then both will show in their proper places, and one of the quote marks will be inverted (a nice style touch, if you want it).

Apostropy and quotation mark keys change


The only time that I have this problem is when I've accidentally hit SHIFT and CTRL at the same time. Do it again and you should go back to your old way of typing characters.

What button makes an apostrophy


Look to the left side of the right side enter key....you will see the apostrophy on the bottom and the quotation mark on the top. Apostrophy will come up without hitting the shift key and the quotation mark will come by hitting the shift key + the quotation key.

Why are some of my keys showing É or é


sounds like your keyboard is speaking another language. Go to control panel, regions, and make sure that English is selected.

Misworking Keys


In the control panel, you should be able to find Language settings. And while I have no idea what language you are describing, I'm guessing that your computer keyboard is set to a different language.

Good luck
