Sounds like you have accidentally selected a French or Canadian keyboard. You need to reselect English.
From the Microsoft web:

  1. Open Regional and Language Options by clicking the Start button while typing a document in - 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.png, clickingControl Panel, clicking Clock, Language, and Region, and then clicking Regional and Language Options.

  2. Click the Keyboards and Languages tab, and then click Change keyboards.

  3. Under Installed services, click Add.

  4. Double-click the language you want to add, double-click the text services you want to add, select the text services options you want to add, and then click OK.

    If this answers your question, I'd appreciate 4 thumbs. I do this for fun and do not get paid.

Looking for word document I did not save


The power just went out while you working on an important document you forgot to save.

Do not panic because Microsoft Word comes equipped with a feature that automatically will recover files you did not save.


Typically, this feature works by default.

The program allows you to change how often Word saves your documents and you can adjust the location where Microsoft Word saves these "Auto Recover" files.


Open up Microsoft Word.

Do not click on a file to open the program.

Instead, open the program by double-clicking on the program's icon.


Allow the program to load for a couple of minutes before clicking on anything.


Look on the left side of the screen.

If Microsoft Word recovered the file, a "Document Recovery" task pane will load.


Find the file's date.

Double-click on the file in the "Document Recovery" pane.


This will open the file in Microsoft Word.


Click on the "File Menu" and select "Save As."


Save the document as a ".doc" file type, and type a name for your document in the "File Name" box.


or


Open Microsoft Word to determine if the program auto-recovered your document.

If your software is set to auto-save your document every couple of minutes, when the program is restarted, any document that was not saved prior to closing, may appear in the auto-recover window on the left side of the screen.


Click on your document, and the last-saved file will open.

However, anything you typed after the last auto-save is gone, but at least you haven't lost the entire document.


Search the auto-recover files manually if the auto-recover pane did not appear when you opened MS Word.


Click the Start menu at the bottom of your computer screen, and click "Search." Some operating systems have the search option as a part of the Start menu.


Search for "*.asd" to search for any recovered files.


If you find the file, open Word, and click "Open" in the menu.

Search through all files, and locate the file that ended in .asd. Click "Open" to view your file.


If you are using Word 2002 or 2003, you need to restart your computer after clicking "Open." Re-open Word after your computer re-boots to view the recovered file.


Check your backup files.

If you have the "Always create backup copy" option selected in Word, you may be able to find a backup copy of your document.


Find the location where you last saved the document.

Check for the extension .wbk.


If there aren't any, search your whole computer for files with that extension.

Open your file by clicking "Open" in Word, and search all files for the .wbk extension.

Once you locate the file, click "Open."


Look in the temporary files on your computer.

Complete a search for files that end in the extension .tmp by typing "*.tmp" into the search box.


Narrow the search down to specific dates of when you were working on the document.

If the file does not show up, try searching for the "~*.*" convention.


Some temporary files are in this format instead.

If your document is now in your temporary files, you will need to recover the damaged document.

Search for it within Word.


Click "Open and Repair" when you find it.






Hope this helps

Hello ... I was typing away and everything was fine, but then all of a sudden when I tried to get the question mark it is a French character instead. How do I get the key back to being a question mark?


Your keyboard's region layout for your computer may have changed somehow. Here's how to change it:

1. Click on Start Menu
2. Type in the bar that says "Search programs and files": Region and Language
3. Click on Keyboards and Languages tab, then click on Change Keyboards
4. In the Default input language tab, select your layout (probably English United States - US)

If it is not listed, click on Add and scroll down to your desired language and layout.

Best of luck!!

My keyboard is typing an è instead of an apostrophy


Microsoft Windows has support for "foreign" keyboards, e.g., French, Swedish.

You've managed to hit left-ALT-SHIFT to switch the "input language" from English to French.

Use "Regional Settings" within "Control Panel" to set it back to English.

When typing question marks & puctuation...French comes up


In Control Panel, double click "Regional and Language Options". Click the Languages Tab and then the Details button. Make sure that English is selected as the Default Input Language. If French is listed as an available keyboard layout and you don't need it there, you can remove it to make sure it doesn't switch itself again.
I hope this helps. Good Luck.
