Hit F11 at the top of your keyboard.
That happened to me also. Thanks for letting us know how to get out of that.

Another symbol is the cents '' symbol. Simply press down the 'Alt' button with one hand, punch in the numbers 155, release the 'Alt' button and like magic the cent '' symbol will appear.

I hope this helps someone, it is just a little knowledge and timesaver.
Nothing happens when i push down the Alt key
Try engaging "NUM LOCK" then using the keypad.

It worked that time! It will only work using the number keypad. Thanks.
