if the one you want isn't in the list, you need to add it by clicking the add button underneath.

Be sure that your keyboard is configured properly. You should be able to check under the "Region and Language" area of control panel if you are in windows and select "Keyboards and Languages." Check that it is set as a US keyboard or that it's set to which keyboard type you are using.

My logitech keyboard won't let me type the pound sign 0r the @ symbol


hi there
it sounds like your keyboard is set to an american style layout.
if the @ key shows up as a " mark and vice versa then you just go to the blue bar at the bottom of the screen on the right hand side you will see the letters EN double click on it and the option to change from english us to english uk will be there. change to english uk and then remove the us version completely as it can default back to it, restart your machine and you should be o.k.
