  1. Wrong characters with keyboard


    Hi

    My keyboard now displays @ when I press shift/double quotes and the opposite when I press shift/at sign.

    Where do I go to check what keyboard options have been set up during the upgrade.

    Thanks

    Daniel

    :)

    Keyboard typing wrong characters

    Hi Fadia, this is a common enough problem . . .

    Open the Control Panel - Language

    Click Options on the right hand side of your current language

    If the @ symbol on your keyboard is above the 2, you have a US English Keyboard

    If the " symbol on your keyboard is above the 2, you have a UK English Keyboard

    In options if the appropriate language does not appear, click 'Add input Method'

    Add the appropriate language if necessary

    Move the appropriate language to the top, if necessary

    Make that the default language

    IMPORTANT - delete any language(s) not required

    Restart your PC

    That's It!

    No problem, I have found it.

    Click on the Language bar and the options of Language and keyboard come up, they had been changed.

    Cheers
