    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

    :)

  2. 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.

  3. symbols only displaying after another key is pressed.

    Hi Alex,

    Virus and malware could be one of the possible reasons why you're having trouble with symbols on your keyboard. To isolate the issue, we'd like to ask you a few questions:

    • Have you made any recent changes to your device before the issue started?
    • Did you encounter any error messages while typing the symbols?
    • Can you tell us the troubleshooting steps that you've performed?

    Meanwhile, we suggest scanning your device using an antivirus program and see if it's infected by a virus.

    We'll keep an eye out for your response.
