Try:-

Start - Control Panel - Regional and Language Options - Set to United Kingdom.

There's also a Keyboard option in the control panel, but I don't think it covers what you want.

My @ key isnt working. instead of that the other blue marked colan is coming. how to toggle back


Have you tried pressing the button "2" on your laptop? And have you tried pressing "Shift" and then "2"? If the number appears when pressing 2, but @ doesn't appear when pressing "Shift" and then "2", chances are your input language aren't correct. Go to Start > Control Panel > Regional and Language Options > Languages Tab. There you can set the proper input language for your keyboard.

Try using the on-screen keyboard as well. Go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > Accessibility > On-Screen Keyboard. If @ works there, then its possible your keyboard might be faulty.

How will i use the @ button when i use shift and number 2 the @ button did not appear... Sony Vaio SR series


Hi,
The standard keyboard language and widely used setting is "ENGLISH (US)"
Set the Keyboard layout to English US so that you have standard keys for symbols etc. like @ sign with SHIFT+2 etc.

The keyboard layout / Language of your PC may have been different (other than English US), so follow these steps to select the International keyboard layout:

- Go to Control Panel - Regional and Language settings
- On the Keyboards and Language tab, click Change keyboards.
- Click Add.
- Expand the language that you want. For example, English (United States).
- Expand Keyboard list, select the United States-International check box, and then click OK.
- In the Default input language list, click Language name - United States-International (where Language name is the language that you selected in step 4), and then click OK two times.
- In the Regional and Language Options dialog box, click OK.

The above steps would change the Keyboard Layout settings to 'English US' and you would be able to type @ sign with SHIFT+2

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

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.

The keyboard layout / Language of your PC may have been changed, so follow these steps to select the International keyboard layout:

- Go to Control Panel - Region and Language settings
- On the Keyboards and Language tab, click Change keyboards.
- Click Add.
- Expand the language that you want. For example, English (United States).

- In the Regional and Language Options dialog box, click OK.

Notice that the Language bar appears on the taskbar. When you position the mouse pointer over it, a ToolTip appears that describes the active keyboard layout.
- Click the Language bar, and then click United States-International on the shortcut menu that appears.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

GoodLuck!
Dont forget to appreciate the solution if I could have been of any help!

@ appears when pressing shift 2


In american keyboard shift+2 is @, latin-american keyboard shift+2 is ".
Im guessing ur problem is the language setup of ur keyboard, depending on ur OS, go to control panel, Clock, Language and Region, Change keyboard or other input methods, Change keyboards and there u got to add urs :D,
Sometimes it switches back to english, so if u want to make sure it doesnt happen, after u add ur keyboard language, remove the other one that u dont need.

Hp mini keyboard shift key 2 does not type @


it has to do with your keyboard setting, currently you are set to the united kingdom keyboard layout, you will need to change this to Unite States settings assuming that you got vista, you will need to do the following

goto control panel
click on regional and language option (there will be a pop up)
click on the keyboard and languages tab
click on the change keyboard button (another pop up will appear)
click on add
and add the United States Keyboard
change the keyboard setting on the upper drop down menu to United States, and then click ok.....this should solve your problem.

Computer keyboard.


The problem does not lie in your keyboard, but rather the keyboard layout settings. Go to control panel, keyboard options and select the standard US settings.
