Re: messed up keys

Try hitting the left alt and the left shift button together, then try it out by pressing shift question mark. I had the exact same problem and i think you can alternate between french and english keys by hitting these two buttons together.

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).

I cannot locate the apostrophe on my keyboard.

The apostrophe is depicted by the single quote, ' . Or I f you want it could also be depicted by ` which is just below the Esc key. You could use either.

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.


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 .. = "

Press Ctrl+Shift at the same time. Toggles the French (blue) keys on & off. I found out after much tedious searching. Hope this helps you!

Cannot get apostrophes or question marks

I just figured this out. Hold down your left shift key, then press CTRL. It may take a couple of times for it to work, but it will eventually.
