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.

How do u use the @ symbol on the keyboard


The @ symbol and the number 2 key share the key.
To select the @ symbol - hold the SHIFT key and then press the number 2 key.
If you are not getting the @ symbol then most likely your keyboard was not or changes from the US keyboard.
If this is the case there would be other wrong symbols on your keyboard.

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 @!

Shift key problem


That means the symbol assigned for shift-2 is currently assigned to the top left character, likely the " symbol. Press shift-Fn to toggle between symbols until the @ symbol works.
