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 Hello, I have a problem - 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.

How do I get the question mark punctuation to work...


When you were typing something you probably hit the left shift key along with ctrl. Hold down the left shift and ctrl for about 2-4 seconds and you should get your question mark back.


To make it so it never happens again, go to control panel / region and language / keyboards and languages / change keyboards. Remove every language except for English (us) or whatever region you want to use. Before you accept verify that your keyboard is on your preferred language before you do this. check and make sure you are getting the proper slash when you push slash, to change it if you're not getting the slash use the (left ctrl + left shift for 3-4 seconds) if that doesn't work then try alt and left shift.
