Just got a new machine and now my keyboard doesn't work the way I want it to. For example, when I want to type a quote ('). I must first press the single quote button and then the space character before it shows up. I am used to these characters to show up immediatly... so that I can write stuff like "eeee". Instead of ëee".

How do I turn that functionality off?
