    Keyboard accents stop working everytime


    Hi everyone,


    I'm using Windows 10 system with Microsoft Comfort Desktop 5050, and in about 5 in 5 minutes the accents stop working. As a workaround, I switch to another language, and the accents start working again. Now I have the Portuguese language with ABNT2 Keyboard and English language with ABNT2 Keyboard. When PT language accents stop working, I switch to English, and when English accents stop working, I switch to PT again, and so goes on.

    You can see there that both PT-BR and ENG languages have the same keyboard type

    (English with US Keyboard is there because Windows simply puts it there automatically, even if I don't ask for it, but this is another issue)


    Observations:

    It is happening since I installed this OS.

    The first main system language was English, but I installed the Portuguese language because of the date format. I know that the system translation has a lot of bugs since Windows 7, so maybe this can be the issue as well, as I installed this translation just after I installed the OS.


    Thank you, in advance

    :)

  2. Accents stopped working

    After updating to version 1709, I cannot type acute accents any longer. I am using English as Windows language, with Latin American keyboard layout. I could type accents as "dead keys" until the update. Now the accents associated with acute and dieresis
    (key next to P key) do not work. Grave and circunflex still work (è, ê; not useful in Spanish, though). If I keep the key pressed for a couple of seconds, a double accent is produced: ´´ and ¨¨. So, the hardware of the key works.

    I have tried changing the keyboard to Spanish (Latin American), without solving the problem. I tried several combinations of language and keyboard, without success.

    Any suggestion wil be welcome. Thanks in advance.

    Hi Pillow,

    Conflicts with the keyboard settings after the update is one of the possible reasons why you are having issues creating an accented letter using your keyboard. For us to assist you better, kindly answer the questions below:

    • Which OS build number of Windows 10 is currently installed? To check, press the
      Windows key, type winver, and press the
      Enter
      key.
    • What application or platform are you trying to input this character?
    • What is the make and model of your keyboard?
    • Have you tried updating the keyboard driver?

    Meanwhile, you can try to use the Character Map and check if you will be able to insert the accented letters. The Character Map was made to allow users to insert special characters on their documents. To open the Character Map, You can follow these steps:
