Yeah, sorry. It was my mistake. But in fact Ctrl + Right Alt + E only
works from within Microsoft Word. At least on my PC it does not from
within Excel (I have version 2010), as well as Notepad, Thunderbird, and
probably most of the text editors. CtrlRight+Alt+E seems to be a
Word/specific hotkey, while Right Alt + numpad  is a Windows
functionality and therefore complies with in  application with text
input. (By the way, I use also newest Win 10.)

Yes, I agree, but Charles gave the correct hint. I just tested it with US Win10 and US keyboard layout: control right-alt-E does the job.

The keystroke right-hand-side Alt plus letter E does not work with standard qwerty keyboard layout, but it works for instance with the German qwertz keyboard layout.
To my knoledge, the procedure with 'hold Alt and press 0128 on the numpad' is the only universal procedure on Windows.
If you don't have a physical numpad, then usually pressing the Fn key allows you to turn your laptop keyboard layout into a numpad, where letter j corresponds to numpad 1, letter k to numpad 2, letter l to numpad 3, letter u to numpad 4, letter i to numpad 5, letter o to numpad 6, number 7 to numpad 7, number 8 to numpad 8, number 9 to numpad 9, and letter m to numpad 0.
Another alternative should be to use the international US keyboard layout. But there I don"t know any details myself.
Best regards and a happy new year, Marti
