You appear to have the wronk keyboard selected,

go into control panel and select "Regional and Language" setting and select the correct language keyboard. Usuallt this will be the US keyboard. You appear to have the English UK keyboard selected.

How do you use the question mark on asus desk top computer


press and hold the "SHIFT" key with the "?" symbol usually on the same key as the "/"(Forward Slash)........ The Right-Shift Button is actually right next to the Question mark.

THe shify Key is also used to type other symbols found on other keys and are usually displayed on the upper side of the keys. When holding shift you will get the special symbols that appears on that key.

My fn key wont work on toshiba sattelite pro


FN (Function Key) that is usually located near the bottom left on the keyboard is not a key that you press by itself to do anything. The FN key works in combination with the (F1 thru F12) and any other key that has the same symbol or color as the FN Key. You have to Press and HOLD the FN key while pressing another key.

If the FN key is Blue and for example your F8 key has a (white F8 on it and a Blue battery icon on it) then to see your battery metor (how much charge it has left) you would Press the FN and hold it then press the F8 key. The F8 that is white does not require you to press the Blue FN.

Sometimes the FN key might have a white square on it, then the keys that work with the FN key will also have a symbol with a white square around it.

Compaq laptop can't get the ? symbol


Hi,

Looks like the French keyboard mapping is still in effect.
You can try changing the keyboard keys back to where they were by pressing:

Left CTRl + left Shift at the same time. then try typing the ?/ key. You may have to try this a couple of times to get it to work.

If it does work, try the right ctrl/left shift key.

Also found this:

Control Panel, Regional and Language Options, Keyboards and Languages,
Change Keyboards. Select the keyboard you that's causing you grief and
choose Remove.

If you don't remove the keyboard map, when this switch happens, you'll have
to exit the application you're in (Outlook, for example), change keyboards,
and restart the app. Changing keyboards without restarting the app doesn't
seem to change the mapping.

Hope this helps!

How do I use the third symbol on the key underneath the Esc key on a keyboard? I know how to use ¬ and ` but not the third (a vertical line)


Usually a third symbol on a key will require the holding of another key to apply that symbol as when holding the shift key to go upper case and what not. But the third the symbol is usually a different color and the key to press to access that symbol is the same color as the symbol is. Such as with many laptop keyboards the FN key (usually at the bottom left side of the keyboard) is a bluish color and pressing it is required to apply the blueish symbols on keys.
I hope this helps.
