Have you ever encountered the situation when your keyboard doesn't work well? For instance, you input an question mark but you only get a "é" in the screen. This is not because your keyboard is damaged, and the most common solution for computer problems – restart – doesn't work at this time.

"é" is a symbol in many languages written in Latin Alphabet including French, such as "résumé" (resume in English). Your system may pre-install other language keyboards except English. So when you press some shortcuts occasionally, your keyboard change to another language, thus you'll get a "é" instead of question mark. Here I'll show you how to change the keyboard settings back.
