I keep getting this symbol


when I want a tilde. How can I get my tilde back?  :'(

In addition, I can't use quotations marks. They all turn into this:


What's going on with my keyboard?


Could you have turned on a "FN" button feature that changed some key operations?


Ah I figured it out. When you mentioned the FN key, I started checking out a few things on my keyboard, and it looks like I must've hit Left ALT + Shift or Left Alt + CTRL, which changed my keyboard input settings!

Problem solved--my keyboard is back to normal!  :-)


         If you use Windows IME for any language support, be careful of the upper left corner key, the "squiggly dash" just below the Escape key.

         I find that at least on this configuration, that key has been entirely taken over for switching languages.  I don't even know how to use it normally anymore.  It's rather annoying, as it's in a very easy place to hit by accident.   ::)
