Go to your control panel and open regional options. Click on the language tab and select the proper language as it might say French.

Regards
Dear Ambucias
Thanks for your help. I have tried your suggestion. It was not set to Canadian key board or french. However I have removed the canadian keyboard altogether.

Since the problem didnt happen always- I dont have a way to check if it worked. I will see for a few days to note if the problem returns.
Whatever the result is, I want to thank you for your effort.
Take care

Hello Sayeed,

Thanks for you feedback!

I have a Canadian Keyboard and I often write in French. Yesterday, I lost all of my accents as if the keyboard had changed to a Bangladesh keyboard.

I rebooted and everything came back to normal. If it happens to you again, try rebooting first.

Regards
