Alt codes not working properly on Notepad

Occasional Visitor

Just today, I was making some notes on Notepad, using Alt+NUM7 to add bullet points to my notes. After 2 consecutive successful uses, instead of creating the bullet character, it starts randomizing the character output, starting with the apostrophe character (') without namespace. When that happens, all Alt codes used afterward are randomized, unrecognizable, and then stop working. So far I have only encountered this problem on Notepad, and the pattern resets every time I start an instance of Notepad.
