Keyboard Layout Help?
So this is really frustrating me.
I usually use the "United States - International" keyboard layout, since I like being able to do accents and use the Alt-GR key. However recently it has been causing problems and I'm not sure why.
One of the biggest examples is the ' key, usually if I press it and then a space it types either ' or ", depending on if I press shift or not. Well, in Firefox, I have to keep pressing the key about 4 times before it finally types two 's and I have to erase one. Pressing space does nothing. And if I press shift+6, it types "^^", as in, the character twice.
I could not figure out what was causing this, so I switched the layout back to US, and it works fine. But I simply cannot use US-International without it doing weird stuff. I tried "sfc /scannow", it found some problems and fixed them, but it's STILL doing the same thing.
Additionally, it appears something else weird is going on as when I try to use ALT codes, they don't do what they're supposed to... like most of them make a heart (♥) instead of what they SHOULD be doing.
I even tried making a custom keyboard layout, opening the normal US International on a completely different computer, then saving it and installing it on here, and it STILL does what I described above.
Has anyone else had a problem like this? I'd really like to get it fixed as without a working keyboard it's kinda hard to do my everyday business...
