    Shift key doesn`t change apostrophe to double quotation marks


    I cannot find a way to have double quotation marks appear in MS word. I am running Windows 10 and have tried changing the language, gone into the settings under auto-correct options and I still can't figure it out. Could someone please help.

    :)

  2. 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?

  3. The apostrophe/quotation mark key isnt working.

    Hi,

    This issue has been going on for five days or so now. I originally thought it just disconnected and was acting up and so only the letters were working, but that it would just fix itself like it has done in the past, but now it has been interfering with work
    I'm trying to get done and it seems to be the only key not working. I went over the entire keyboard to double check.

    I did both of those once before, two days ago, and the results were:

    • On-screen keyboard - works perfectly fine on there.
    • Troubleshoot - reported that nothing was wrong.
    I just did this once more today after reading your suggestions:

    • On-screen keyboard - works perfectly fine.
    • Troubleshoot - detected that I needed to restart my device, so I restarted it, logged back in and it is still not working.
    I just did the troubleshoot once more to see if anything else appears:

    Both,

    • Hardware and Device - Troubleshoot reported that it couldn't identify the problem.
    • Keyboard - Troubleshoot reported that no updates or changes were necessary.

    Thank you for your help. I would really love to get this resolved. This is my 8th Surface Book, each time a new systematic issue that leads to me switching it out, and its becoming extremely frustrating.

  4. Shift key doesn`t change apostrophe to double quotation marks

    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
