  1. Hi Patrick,
    I tried all of your suggestions for windows 10, but it does not seem to work.
    Advanced keyboard settings
    English (Canada) -US
    Go back (since there is no ÈsaveÈ or ÈOKÈ button
    Language seems changed but I still get the same È character. Please help!

  2. Hi, I’m using Windows through parallels on my Mac. When I’m on windows the / becomes an e. I tried everything you suggested but nothing has changed. Is there anything else you could suggest my trying?

  3. I went into the typing settings but unfortunately there is no advanced settings button on my computer. But still this was quite helpful!
