Hello

I know how to switch from UK to Us language on my Chromebook keyboard, but I have noticed that when I am using the US keyboard I can use the @ symbol using the shift key and @ but how do I do this using the UK keyboard.? When I want to send an email using the UK keyboard using the shift key and the @ doesn't work. Thank you in advance.

Hi

What do you mean it doesn't help, alt+64 is universal for the @ symbol?

Just a thought...

On the US vs UK keyboards the @ and " are swapped

The Alt key to the right of the space bar is replaced by an AltGr key
