Functon Key Hit in Error -- Which One

I'm getting French accents on some things like the backslash and question mark. How did I make that happen and how can I turn that function off?

    I went to the language setting on the control panel and it was already set at English-US. The French accents were still coming up -- and not on the correct keys even... The capital E with an accent was appearing when I hit the question mark key for instance. I rebooted the computer and all OK now... I'd like to know what key was touched to cause the problem in the first place.

    ééééé...Exactly!! On my HP Pavilion this can happen at any point during the day and after a few hours of being annoying and me having to copy and paste in questions marks or quotation marks - it just magically switches back on its own!! I have tried every combo... Can anyone helpé

    After 10 to 15 minutes of typing, I get that accented E every time I hit my shift ? key and hyphenated e when I hit my ' key. I dont know what I was doing to activate it but it was very annoying. For some time now, shutting down my document and starting it again was correcting it but it was getting to be anannoyance. I tried tried the suggestion of going into the control panel anddelete the unneccessary language. So far after 10 minutes of typing, it has not happened again. Thanks. It's really a big relief.

You turned on Verr. Maj. by hitting [ctrl] [shift]. Hit it again once or twice to turn it off. Normal = ?, then [ctrl] [shift] =

Go to language settings in control panel and ensure that there are no other keyboard options available. It appears that the language toolbar is enabled and has switched to a different language such as French or Spanish.

I have somehow turned on the French keys on my laptop. This has happened before but I forget how to fix it. When I try to type a question mark I get a capital E with the accent mark over it. Please...

French keys on laptop?...The only thing that I can think is the left hand [FN] key usually blue or green (colored key different then usually white key on black background) hold down and try one of the F# [Function key...F1,F2,F3,etc.,etc)

How do I get the question mark and backslash instead of green characters

The Question Mark and Backslashes are typed while holding the SHIFT key,
the "Green" characters sound like your FUNCTION keys.

If you're NOT holding down the FUNCTION key or the FN key you may have some kind of Function Lock enabled. (Look for a Fn Lock of F Lock button/light)

When I am writing a legtter on Incredimail and hit the question mark I get an E with a French accent. Writing to you, and I hit the same key I get what I want - a question mark. What should I do to...

Linda, you need to remove unused keyboard languages from the control panel, look under regional settings... Sometimes this is really buried, but in essence, you need to remove/delete unneeded keyboards.
