The backslash character is viewed as a weird character ( as : Y )

When I type a backslash in the IDE, it shows such a character that I'm denoting the red circle.
Why is this happening?

Is PhpStorm the only place you see the character in?
In general, it's the Japanese directory separator, so you probably have the locale set to Japanese somewhere in your system.

Since I updated my JetBrains apps to the latest version, I've seen the Japanese directory separator in PhpStorm, DataGrip, and CLion. Thanks for your help, I will try to find the problem in the system locale.

You can check the system directory separator by running [IO.Path]::DirectorySeparatorChar in PowerShell.
