    Can't type quotation marks single or double


    I am using US Qwerty keyboard and English United States language pack.

    I have tried adding international keyboard and removing US keyboard.

    I have changed to different languages.


    I currently have to copy and paste the quote marks into a document.


    I saw many other users are experiencing this issue.


    Win 10 on a Surface laptop.


    ANY help would be appreciated.

    :)

  2. Keyboard substitutes quotation marks for the AT symbol ?

    My AT symbol is above a single quotation mark within the body of the keyboard - next row under the qwerty line!

    A double quotation mark is above the 2 !

    Just thought I'd check your instructions are still valid in that case before I make any changes.....thank you

    crazy quotation marks

    when I type quotation marks the first one is inverted and at the bottom of the line, the second, turned around. eg.: „of new possibilities“

    This is happening in only one document. and the only soultion is to cut and past every correct quotation mark.

    I have read all the similar questions and no one has suggested a correction that works. There are lots of language related suggestions but all solutions thus far have failed. Please give explicit instructions.

    Please, please help!

  4. Can't type quotation marks single or double

    Can't type quotation marks (")

    Hi,

    Normally when using US (International keyboard) settings, typing [ Shift + ' + Space ] gives you [ " ]. However, for me both typing [ ' + Space] and typing [ Shift + ' + Space ] all give me [ ' ]. In order to type a quotation mark, my only option is to
    type [ Shift + ' + ' ], which gives me [ ' " ], and then I can delete the single quote. I have tried different keyboard settings, but they don't fix the problem. Does anybody know how I can fix the issue? Please, feel free to ask for any additional information
    if needed.
