Default My @ symbol on my keyboard is not working


Can anyone help please? When I use my keyboard and try to type @ using the normal shift @ it appears as ". Vice versa when I use " (shift 2) I get @! Some of my other numberic keys are also different. I have tried various options under my scientific symbols but no success. How do I get back to normal with my keyboard.... other examples - when I try to type a pound symbol I get #, but the $ symbol works fine as do all the other numeric shift options..... confused

The reason is the keyboard layout is set to American, or UK English - if the number 2 is ["] and ' is [@], then you have a UK keyboard layout - if the other way round, then it is set to US layout.

Go to the Control panel of your OS and go into 'Regional and Languages' and change the keyboard layout to the one you need.

Default My @ symbol

I have changed the language setting as suggested and the problem still persists? Do I have to shut down first maybe?

You can also produce the @ symbol with the ALT + 64 combination (64 on the numeric keypad only)

Default @ for windows 8

for win8:
Open Control Panel > Language > Options >
Add an input method > Select: English (India) > Double click QWERTY
and remove other one
