Press the other Shift button, OR press the ALT GR button which is the button on right from the long space bar.

So ALT GR + 2 will give you a unlimited suply of @ @ @ @ @ @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

SOURCE: 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.

When i press the shift key and im trying to get the @ i get the " instead.


You have the language set wrong on your keyboard.
Try pressing ALT-SHIFT and then see if SHIFT 2 gives you an @
Otherwise, yu may need to install the English US keyboard layout because right now it looks like you are on English Canadian (possibly french) layout.

When i am typing @ cant instead @ the letter is " please help


The keyboard is set up wrongly or the laptop isn't one set up for your country.
If you get " when typing @ try typing SHIFT and 2 for the @ symbol.
You can change keyboard settings in Control Panel.

HOW DO YOU DO NEGATIVE 10 POWER NUMBERS LIKE 2.5 X10-2?


Hi ceanelson,

First, I would clear the memory. Press [SHIFT] [9] (CLR) [1](Setup) [=] (YES). Then press [SHIFT] [MODE] [2] to switch to the LineIO mode. Put the calculator in Norm2 mode. I just like the way it display these kind of numbers in Norm2 mode. Press [Shift][Mode] [8] [2] for Norm2. Next check make sure FIX mode is greater than at least 5. I usually select FIX 9 but, 5 seems to be good for must non-essential calculations. Next, press [2] [.] [5] [*10^] [(-)] [2] [=]. You can use the [SHIFT] [LOG] for the 10^ and, I usually do instead of [*10^] key.


Next, when dealing with numbers like these, I always use brackets. Such as press [ ( ] [2] [.] [5] [*10^] [(-)] [2] [ ) ] [=]. This is because, if you divide or do some other math operation you want to keep this number as a whole complete number. The calculator tends to break numbers like these up and, you do not want that to happen. It's a good habit to get into. Post a comment on any questions you may have and, I'll respond quickly.

How do i get a decimal on division instead of a fraction? in example when divide 100 by 3 it gives 100/3 instead 33.3


  1. If a fraction (or a radical) is already displayed press the [S<=>D] key to convert it into a decimal number.
  2. If you are entering an expression and want its result displayed as a decimal number, press the [SHIFT][=] key sequence instead of just [=].
  3. More permanent solution: If you do not want fractions nor radicals, configure the Input/Output to be LineIO. To do that, press [SHIFT][MODE] to access the (SETUP) then select the option [2:LineIO]

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 .. = "

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 @!
