But how do you differentiate between "que" with without accent in non textual statements.
qué with accent will be at the beginning of a question. ¿Qué pasó?=What happened?
que without accent will be used inside a sentence structure. It can be a relative pronoun
or a conjunction between clauses of a sentence.

I hope this helps. Espero que esto ayude.
I thought that only personal pronouns and question words were accented like that.
It is a question word, used out of a question, if that makes sense. Without the accent it would mean "You already know THAT I did" rather than "WHAT I did."
so when there is an accent on que it means "what" and without the accent it means "that"....?
It's being used as a Relative Pronoun. Pretty much any interrogative pronoun in English or Spanish (and I'm guessing most Indo-European languages) can be used as a relative pronoun.
I have the same question here. "Lo que hice" seems like "qué hice" but I've heard lo que used more often.
