    Acute accent key creates double 创


    So i'm having this super annoying issue where my acute accent key creates double 创 But only in office 365 and mozilla products.
    What's the normal behaviour of the acute accent key? Normally you press it once and nothing appears on screen as it's awaiting the second input, so you press acute accent and then e to get etc.

    I've found older threads on win7 forum and other places with no solution.

    Hi, not a fix, I'm afraid- instead, a pretty much universal rational alternative- freeware

    AX - Instant, simple accents and special characters

    Choose the language - character set (or add your own); hit a character then your chosen special key and

    all in 11 key strokes I think it was.

    ****The UK International keyboard does not currently work on Windows 10. We憊e written to the creator to ask for him to update the driver, but in the meantime, you might consider the US International keyboard (see below).

    That depends entirely on which keyboard layout you are using at present

    The ' key can be used when the keyboard is set as English UK International to produce accented characters such as and by first pressing ' followed by the character to be accented. When you press ' initially nothing happens, it's waiting for another key to be pressed.

    If you're not used to this behaviour you may press it again thinking you hadn't pressed hard enough first time. Having received a second key press, and not being one that needs an accent, the first ' is now displayed, along with the second key pressed - which happens to be ' too, hence the '' being displayed.

    I have a quasi-UK keyboard on my UK laptop - it's basically US with the OEM putting a few stickers on some of the keys to make it 99% UK layout. Mostly it's fine, but I need several keyboard languages installed to get all the keys I need - the \ being unavailable in ENG UK. I switch keyboards with WinKey+Space. I also have ENG US and ENG INTL installed, that last one and its '' is always catching me out.

    According to the link @dalchina gave you...
    Important gotcha: some applications remember which layout was active when they were started so to be sure you抮e using the new layout, you may need to close and reopen applications
    ...which explains why you see this behaviour in some apps but not others.
