I live and work in Belgium, so quite often have to send emails in French. All too often I would be slowed down trying to remember alt key codes for accents or the Euro symbol. I would end up googling them and copying and pasting them into emails.
Then it struck me that it would be very useful to have a program running in the System Tray that would let me copy my most commonly used symbols to the clipboard, ideally just with a few keystrokes.
'QuickAccent' is the tool that I have written to solve this problem. It runs discretely in the system tray, until you open it with the mouse or a the Windows + Q hotkey. You then get a customisable menu showing different accents - any of which can be copied to the keyboard with a click.
