Hi Javlex,
The keyboard is set to US English.
You''ll find that Shift ' will be @, as well.
To fix this, press Start, Settings, Control Panel, Regional Settings.
Set all the locales in there and restart your PC.

Fixya!

I have a new acer netbook. In attempting to type an email address, I cannot type the @ symbol. It comes up as ". There are green symbols and lettering on some of the keys. HELP!


Where did you buy your Netbook?
What language or locality have you chosen for your system?
US keyboards have @ on the shift 2 key
Various other keyboards have " for shift 2 - these include various European and Latin American layouts. You need to specify a locale that matches your hardware.

My shift 2 is not working right to type in my email address instead of at i get this "


Your keyboard may have gotten switched to UK English setting. Whatever key you see the " on, try holding down Shift and hitting that key. I wouldn't be surprised if @ shows up.

As a last resort, open Microsoft Word, go to Insert>Symbols and open and copy the @ symbol there to a text doc on your desktop and you can paste it in until you get a new keyboard or change the settings.

Instead of getting the @ symbol when I press shift +2 i get "


you need to hold down ctrl and function on the left side of your keyboard, and then hit the shift key on the right side of your keyboard. Then let go of right shift while still holding down the control and function keys, and then hit right shift again.

these blue keys are french keys. if you change your keyboard settings to english US or UK, it will get rid of the blue functions, but for some reason, they tend to turn themslves back on again after time. Most likely due to automatic updates followed by an auto restart. Also, I find that the issue only arises if I am in my hotmail account.....no issue in Word docs.

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 @!
