Trouble with typing @ sign (arobase)

December 2016


The shift keys won't type the @ (arobase) sign when trying to type an email address. The shift works for other keys so it isn't broken..


The @ symbol and quote symbol are being swapped... Try this:
  • control panel, then Regional and language options, Languages, and Details
  • First try 'key settings' and uncheck the boxes to swap between keyboards.
  • but if it in't enough for you and that it still keeps on changing keyboard layouts, try to remove US-International and UK keyboards leaving just "US"...


Thanks to majick for this tip on the forum.
