    Hey everyone,
    I recently did a clean install after replacing my HDD and I have a slight annoyance. I used to be able to hold down the letter "a" and then get options for accents, but now every time I hold down "a" it just repeats "a". Does anyone know how to re-activate this function?
    Thanks,

    ~ Sk1llz
