hello ,
i just had to restore windows.
now i have done this before but i can't remember how .
how do i change the @ and # signs on the keyboard as they are all in the wrong place.
the only thing i can think of is regional setting in control panel which i'VE changed fron united states to uk but this did not work .

any ideas please.

many thanks.

Go to control panel and change to English British UK and same for keyboard

if xp you need to go into modems/edit and set to british english or similar failing that have a look at keyboard settings, of course all of this is useless if you have not got xp;)
