Keyboard reversing characters

  MuDelta 18:05 07 Feb 2011

When I type the @ character I get " and when I type " I get @ No other Keys are giving trouble. How can I correct this? Don't say reverse the keystrokes!!

Somehow you have got you language set to American.
Depending on the OS find contro panal / languages and alter the default to English UK and the keyboard to English UK, apply and save.

Go into Control Panel > Regional & Language Options > Languages tab > Details button > change Default input language to UK, & ensure a UK keyboard is also selected under 'Installed services'. Save & exit. The keys should work as they ought to now.

While you're there change anything else to UK if not already done. G

Use left hand ALT and SHIFT to toggle between layouts.

You probably caught them typing.
