My desktop machine at the office got migrated to Windows 7 and I started having problem with quotes (both " and '). It requires me to press twice before the quotes are displayed. I said quotes because it will print out two quotes in the screen instead of just 1!!! It’s too annoying given that I use it gazillion times everyday and I am forced to do multiple keystrokes just to display one damn quote! Take note that it does not happen on my Windows 7 laptop, only the desktop. It’s too frustrating especially so that it hampers my productivity.
Fortunately, the internet is full of tips on how to solve this. Here are the steps.
- Close your application
- Switch your keyboard layout. Just switch to anything other than what you are using. Here’s the screenshot of my desktop tray.
- Change the keyboard layout back to its original
- Re open your application and type away.
