My friends keyboard seems to be configuered US style instead of British. We go to ..control panel..keyboard..language..properties..and although we have the disc (98SE), we still cant get @ to appear using that key....we have to use the 2 key....where have we gone wrong.

I reformatted my wifes old win 95 she also lost the @. (Comp has since been replaced)

But when selecting British, are you clicking Apply; OK?

It's just one of those silly things that sometimes gets overlooked!

IVE HAD THIS BEFORE,WHEN I FIRST GOT MY WIRELESS KEYBOARD.UNFORTUNATLEY I USE XP HOME, BUT IT MAY BE SIMILAR

MY COMPUTER > CONTROLL PANNEL > DATE,TIME,LANGUAGE AND REGIONAL OPTIONS > REGONAL OPTIONS

ONCE IN THERE ON THE REGIONAL OPTIONS TABB MAKE SURE THAT THE LANGUAGE SELECTED IS ENGLISH(UK) AND NOT ENGLISH(USA).GOOD LUCK

Try pressing ALT+SHIFT together. Works, but only sometimes.

I recently bought a IPC laptop (2nd hand) and the keyboard did not have a @ on it at all.

I tried all combinations of keys and eventually sent it back (due to another problem).

I still never found out where it was hidden.
