Hold down the ALT(ernate) GR(aphic) key -- to the right of the SPACE BAR on your keyboard.
Press the '2' key.
Release the '2' key.
Release the ALT GR key.

When I want to put in a Question mark in a sentance, I get that funny little red E that is on the same key.


You have the wrong keyboard selected for your computer. This can happen based off where you purchased the computer. The installed keyboard profile is wrong. Do this below:

Control Panel > Regional and Language Options > Keyboards and Languages > Change Keyboards to the one for your correct language

The slash key under the ? shows up as a e with an accent why?


To the right of the "space-bar" on the keyboard, hold down the ALT GR ("alternate graphic") key, press the "slash" key, and release the ALT GR key.

Or, in "Regional Settings" within "Control Panel", change your "input method" to "US-English" keyboard, rather than some French or French-Canadian input method.

I am setting up a new Dell with Windows Premium. When I use WORD 2000, there are 5 keys on the keyboard that do not produce the character on the key. When I call Dell, they say they will charge me $129 to...


If those 5 keys produce "other" graphics, then look on your keyboard for the 'ALT GR' key, just to the right of the space-bar.

Hold-down the ALT-GR key.
Press one of those 5 keys.
Release the ALT-GR key.
What graphic is displayed?
