HP ENVY x360 15.6 inch 2-in-1 Laptop PC 15-eu0000 (267R8AV)

I bought this laptop with Windows 11 installed.  I have never been able to get the alt codes to work.  For example, If I go into Notepad, I can start off with a flashing cursor.  But if I type alt+0176, the cursor freezes - and there is no degree symbol.  I can use the character map, but that is a clunky process.

 

Is there a way of enabling the alt codes to work?

Windows 11 Home, OS Build 22621.963
