  1. new keyboard not typing correct symbols


    Hi


    I have just purchased a Microsoft wired 600 keyboard but I cannot find the question mark when I press the up arrow to select the symbol the symbol I press is not the right one eg the button that's is labelled question mark produces _ an underscore.


    This isn't the only issue there are many keys that when pressed are not what is displayed on the key.


    Thank you

    :)

    Using keyboard to type symbols

    Can someone tell me how to type the symbol for the Russian Ruble using the keyboard on my laptop ?

    I had a list of symbols and icons that one could write years ago but I lost it and can't find it using Google.

    Thanks, Mick

  3. resetting keyboard symbols

    Hi Carol,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    I would suggest you to remove English UK and just have the default English US under keyboard input language and check.

    Step 1:To keep English US as the default input language and to remove other installed services

    a. Type Settings in the search bar and click on the setting symbol on the top right.

    b. Click on Time and Languages.

    c. Click on Region and Languages.

    d. Under the languages tab.

    e. Click and Change the language to English US.

    Step 2:Use on screen keyboard to type the characters (@, “)

    To use on-screen keyboard, follow the steps below.

    a. Click on Start; type “On-screen” without quotes and hit Enter.

    b. Now check if you’re able to get right characters.

    Let us know if it helps or post back for further assistance, we will be glad to help.
