I`m on Johnny`s laptop and somehow I pressed something that makes my question mark, slash key do this é É

and my apostrophes are all backwards.

I need to fix it before he discovers it.

Okay, so apparently if you press and hold shift/control down together too long (which must be what I did) it does that to your question mark button.

Holding the two down together again at the same time for longer then 10 seconds fixes it!!

Whoo hoo!! ???///???///???? FIXED!! yes! I don't get the ban stick from the el laptopo!

try hitting Control + the accent grave key.

Does that work?

Check the top of your computer...under the 'Edit' drop down menu, is there a 'special characters' option? Click around in there.

Then, try hitting 'shift' and '?'--twice, in quick succession.

If that doesn't work, try a restart.


Bottom line--I think my IT department is out to lunch. Tee many martoonies. ;) IT also thinks it may be some sort of HTML code or *possibly* there might be a 4-digit keyboard code that you hit. But, what are the chances of you inadvertently hitting the EXACT 4 digit code???

sorry--no help.
