Why have ive lost the function to use the at key
Hi Diane Andrews
You stated as you have lost the @ function on your keyboard . And by looking at your DP i suppose its a laptop . Well then if so you might need to reset the keyboard layout settings for your laptop . Different OS has its different settings . You might have changed your language settings which may or might have caused it . Steps on how to its here . But if you have lost the @ key itself then ... you might need to get it change at your nearest computer repair shop or bring it to the vendor . Or maybe for time being you can use the on screen keyboard
CLick start - under the search - type On screen Keyboard and select it to use it .
Basic .. Fix an external keyboard and try if it works on that keyboard . If it does then your laptop keyboard might be at fault or need to change the settings .
Method 1 of 3: Changing the Language Settings (Windows)
If your keyboard is not displaying the correct characters when you press keys, your language settings may have gotten changed. If you have the incorrect region selected, your keyboard will act differently. To change it back, open the Control Panel.
You can access the Control Panel from the Start menu. Windows 8 users can right-click on the Windows button and select Control Panel from the menu
Open the Language settings. How you access this depends on which version of Windows you are using.
Windows 8 - If you are in Category mode, select "Change input methods" under the "Clock, Language, and Region" section. If you are in Icon mode, select "Languages".
Windows Vista and 7 - If you are in Category mode, select "Change keyboards and other input methods" under the "Clock, Language, and Region" section. If you are in Icon mode, select "Region and Language" and then click the "Keyboards and Languages" tab. Click the Change keyboards... button.
Windows XP - select "Regional and Language Options", click the Languages tab, and then click Details..
Select your language. Use the menu to select the default input language you want to use. In Windows Vista and 7, select your preferred language from the "Default input language" drop-down menu. In Windows 8, move your preferred input language to the top of the list.
