    Is there a way to change the way the ALT/Symbol key works so that it doesn't change the keyboard layout and instead just let's you press it before pressing a key on the current layout and it will input the number/symbol that is in gray on the key?

    I find it jarring when the keyboard look changes and I have to search out the symbol I want. Holding a key for a symbol is too slow. I'd like to just be able to quickly hit Alt/Symbol then an existing key in the current layout to input the symbol in gray listed above it.

    Or is there an application that will accomplish this for me?

    Thanks in advance!
