    Unable to type quotation mark (“) properly

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand that when you need to press the ()
    key twice or press it once followed by a character to get the quotation mark () printed on the screen.



    I would like to inform you that if you are using a US – International keyboard, you will need to press the () key twice or press it once followed by a character to get the quotation mark () printed on the screen.
    As this is by design for the US - International keyboard.



    Similarly, if you are using a United Kingdom keyboard for English (Australia), you will see a change in the
    @ and keys. As they are swapped to accommodate the Australian keyboard.



    As an alternative, you might want to try using the United States keyboard, which should allow you to type the characters properly. To install the United States keyboard, refer the steps mentioned below:



    1. Press Windows logo key + I, to open
      Settings.
    2. Click on Time & Language and click on
      Language on the left pane.
    3. Now, click on English (Australia) language pack and select
      Options.
    4. Click on Add a keyboard and select
      United States (US).


    Regards,

  3. Quotation Marks Doubled

    Suddenly, when in the middle of a document, my Word for Windows 10 started making two quotation marks, or two apostrophes, when I hit the key.

    What did I do?

    Have to double press quotation mark to get it printed

    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!
