In the Region & Language settings, Keyboards and Languages tab change to US. In Administrative tab, change the Language for non-Unicode programs to US. This worked for me.

Hats off to you, WS. I and my Computer Engineer were scratching heads over this issue for a long, long time, assuming that the system might be infected with a Trojan, or the drivers might be corrupt. Sometimes the solution is so easy that we tend to ignore it. We were a tad ashamed to realise the problem was so minute. Thank you once again. Blessings.

It's control and shift at the same time. (not control and enter) Try that it should work.

Hit Fn + Num Lock .

Just hit "ctrl" + "Enter" at the same time. You probably accidentally hit that combo to switch it into the alternate layout in the first place - doing it again will get it back to the regular layout.

I tried all this solutions. My keyboard and language settings are on US english. Unicode is US english. I still have my shift + 'key' symbols mixed up in same way the poster has it. 'ctrl' + Enter did nothing.

I changed the language/keyboard setting to "English (United States)" however I now have to press the " twice and backspace. did that make sense? I hope it did :P

Please carry out a scan to confirm whether the problem is not coming from any virus infection.
