One approach for this problem is to switch your kbd to a US layout.
You can keep the Swedish layout as an alternative, I understand -- I
know very little about Windows.  But I vaguely recall it is fairly
easy to switch the layouts.

You can use the wonderful AllChars program for typing Swedish letters
with a US layout.  You press and then release the Ctrl key and then
you type two other keys and that will insert a non-ascii character
into the program you are using.  For example, Ctrl " a is the standard
shortcut for ä, and Ctrl a e is the standard shortcut for æ.

I've switched from German to US layout at work, with AllChars, and I
don't want to go back again.  Drives my colleagues crazy (keycaps are
similar to UK (not US) layout with Indic also printed on them, actual
kbd layout is heavily customized US), but what the heck ;-)
