I am trying to fix this same issue you had in the past- with the french e instead of the question mark - I always get the fix mixed up!

Alt + shift works. Ctrl+ Shift has NEVER worked for me. I have a logitech keyboard, and I don't know if that matters or not, but Alt+Shift always works for me....

Thanks Stepside, I can't tell you how many links I looked at and how many suggestions I tried before your most simple solution. Thank you, thank you!! So simple - also very easy to accidentally hit that key combination and turn it back on:(

Switching keyboard back to English. Use same steps to switch back to French.
1. Press- Shift key
2. While still holding down Shift - Press down on Ctrl key-Hold both keys down together, for less then a second.
3.Now release both Shift & Ctrl at the same time.
4 Press down on Shift Key only once again & Release.
