The "@" key (shift + "2") does not work as an "@" symbol

My keyboard seems to change the function of the "@" symbol from the Shift+"2" key combination default.

I found a two key combination that restored the functionality of the "@" symbol, but now I forgot this.

I just want to make the keyboard function as it is labeled on the keys (i.e. Shift + "2" gives you the "@" symbol).

It sounds like you have the wrong keyboard layout set - ie Uk keyboard layout for a US keyboard.


If you have more than one keyboard layout set in Windows 10, you can toggle between them by holding down the Ctrl Key and pressing the Shift key


Alternatively, you can change the layout for your keyboard as described on the link below.
