UK keyboards use a different key for @.
If you wish to change the keyboard layout, you can do this by right clicking on your taskbar and select "language bar". When this is done, right click on the keyboard symbol and select "settings". Change the default language (to UK) and your keyboard will type correctly.

Your keyboard is working correctly. Shift 2 is the proper key sequence to press to type the @ sign.

Are you somehow confusing this with the num lock key?

You need to press the NUM Lock key.
The NUM lock key is usually the same key as the ScrLk key but to select the NUM lock you need to press and hold down the Shift key and then press the NumLk/ScrLk key. A LED light will light up to indicate the number keypad is on.

Wireless keyboard will not type numbers. Only the corresponding symbols will show up. The shift key is not down nor is it stuck down.


Although Shift key is not pressed down, maybe the electronics are messed up due to shock if you dropped the keyboard. Turn off Caps Lock, go to text editor of your choice and try to type numbers together with some letters. If you get big letters, then Shift button is pressed down.

In both cases, just to make sure, try your keyboard on some other computer and see if it works.

If you find out that Shift button is always pressed, than it is a hardware problem that may or may not be fixable.

hi there
it sounds like your keyboard is set to a foreign language. if you look at the blue bar at the bottom of your screen on the right you will see a < symbol next to which (to the left) should be 2 letters, this should be EN if not double click the 2 letters then select english u.k. and then delete any other languages. restart your pc.
hope this helps
