        The Alt + xxx does not show the right character.

        alt = 133  give … instead of a, accent grave.  alt + 136  give ˆ instead of accent e circumflex.The keyboard is Australia ENG Us.

        With the keyboard  ENG UK same results with the num key. But @ is replaced by ” !

        I changed the keyboard, same results. (Logitech raduo  for  Logitech USB)

        Do I reinstall Microsoft 365 or Windows 10  or something else?

        Thanks

        Try pressing the Num Lock key first, then press the Alt + 136 keys for the accented Ê ê.
        . . . .and use the Alt + 133 keys for the accented À à.

        Press the Alt + Shift keys to swap from English (US) to English (UK) (or vice-versa).
        If you don’t need the Eng or US Language – remove the one you don’t want or need so any future accidental pressing of the Alt + Shift keys won’t swap because it can’t.
