    Hi there,

    Please do explain in detail of the Issue as it seems we cannot get hold of the issue from your statement.
    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/answers/support/quality-question

    As far as I know, the Alt nnnn (nnnn decimal > 255) method is a RichEdit feature and therefore works on selected programs only, such as WordPad and MS Word. In other programs, the number entered, nnnn, is reduced modulo 256 to yield a number in the range 0...255, interpreted according to the code page in use.

    Since yesterday, my alt codes no longer work and give me the wrong symbol
    Alt+0223 should be ß
    Instead: ▀ this
    Alt+0233 should be é
    Instead: Ú this

    Every single Alt key combo I've tried gives the wrong symbol.
    It's like Unicode no longer works on Windows 11.

    As someone who lives in France, and also communicates in German, it's kind of essential to have those working!
