    Unhappy Windows Remote Desktop: Tilde, Quote and Double-Quote do not appear
    Hi There,

    I'm running Windows Remote Desktop from Snow Leopard to access a windows pc remotely for programming in visual studio. However, I am unable to type a tilde, quote or double quote symbol.

    I have the feeling that it has something to do with the fact that mac uses a different encoding for these symbols than windows. And it's the symbols that are being sent to the remote computer, rather than the keystrokes themselves.

    Does anyone have a solution?

    Thanks a lot in advance.

    ps: I use remote desktop because I think it's unpractical to reboot to windows with bootcamp, and a virtual machine decreases performance too much.

    I already solved it myself.

    Setting the keyboard input language to US, instead of US International PC solved it.
