The English keyboard has the @ located in the 3rd row up
The American keyboard has @ located above 2

You need to change the keyboard in the control panel

How does one access the @ in order to insert it into an email address when one sends an email? Pressing down SHIFT as I press the 2 key results in getting the " sign instead of the @ sign.


Hi, Solution 1: You can change the keyboard layot from the control panel Solution 2: Try the combination Shift+' button next to the Enter or try all the keys with Shift combination and find the @.

When I strike the apostrophe, quotation marks (or double appostrophe)appear. When I Shift + apostrophe, double quotations appear. Same thing happens with the tilde key. So far just these 2 keys...


Sounds like a defective keyboard. I seen issues when pressing a button it will trigger another key to be pushed or nothign displays at all. Try replacing keyboard since they are relatively cheap. othersie maybe a software issue

When I press apostrophe quotes they don't appear. But when I press the button a second time, then I get double ( "" ) and have to backspace to get single quotations ( " ) How do I fix this?


Download the Microsoft settings utility for this keyboard and check through the options settings, especially for "smart quotes." The smart quote, if enabled, may not show up at either end of the quoted phrase until you press the apostrophe/quote key the second time; then both will show in their proper places, and one of the quote marks will be inverted (a nice style touch, if you want it).

Every key stroke gives me double characters


Possibly your keyboard settings are too sensitive. Go to your Control Panel and click on Keyboard. There you can adjust your settings to decrease the sensitivity of the keys.

I love my keyboard but when I press apostrophe quotes they don't appear unless I press the button twice and then I get double and have to backspace to get single quotations again.


Hi

I beleave that is how that button is supposed to work, on all the keyboards i've ever used the same thing has happened, instead I press on the " key instead of the ¨. I suppose the " is what your looking for instead of the ¨.

I'd guess your pressing on the wrong button, find the key that does " " " ", you may use SHIFT together with another key to get " to come out.

On my Finnish keyboard its SHIFT + 2 .. = "

Wireless 1000 keyboard not supporting standard Windows F-keys


I had the same problem. I just could not get the "Alt-F4" function to work in a macro.

In the Macro Editor, in the lower center, you will see the "Z" actions. I realized I wanted the "Press and hold Z" function.

To get this, use "Inserting Special..." function to insert the Alt key stroke in the macro.

Then highlight the Alt in the Editor. Right Click and select "Split."

This will put the "Press and hold Z key" and "Release Z key" icons in the Editor.

What you want is the "Press and hold" function. Delete any other references the the Alt key.

Then enter the F4 key, and there you have it.

Hope this all makes sense to you.

I had the same problem. When I pressed shift and that comma key I got a " instead of a @.

I looked to see what on the leyboard you normally press to get a " and that's the number 2 key.

Tried pressing shift and the 2 key and hey presto, I got a @.

So it looks like @ and " have swapped places.

So shift and 2 for a @!
