    Thank you for your help, the shift key does produce upper case, the 2 doesn't work neither does the plus symbol, both shift keys seem to work properly on all rows except the which includes the 'at' key.

Try using the other shift key. If that works, then you most likely have a dirty or defective keyboard.
Does the number 2 work? Does your shift key product uppercase letters (does it work with other keys?)
If you are having problems with a flaky keyboard, it's pretty inexpensive to replace it and reduce your stress.

This is not helpful. I have the same problem. On the actual key on a Gateway computer is an @ sign and a " at the top of the key and a 2 and a @ sign at the bottom of the key. When I shift and key it I get the " . When I don't shift I get the 2. Any help?

My HP laptop working on Windows 10 is not properly [email protected] symbol when I press shift 2

I would check for firmware updates. Basically make sure you have all your updates. I would see if the Key is working at all. the 2 or the SHIFT key. It may be a hardware issue if its just that key. Which would result in needing a replacement keyboard.

How do i get the curly a for my e mail adress to appear on the screen

The Curly is called the "at" symbol as in [email protected]
This will depend on the Computer or iDevice that you are using.
It is part of the ASCII character set on most keyboards.
You sometimes have to cluck the upper case or symbol key on an iDevice to see the @ symbol. On a Mac it's the Shift Key and 2.

Greater than symbol? in keyboard?

Dell QWERTY keyboards greater-than symol is produced by the key sequence
SHIFT-. (shift period), like any other QWERTY keyboard. Your greater-than symbol probably wore off.

Cant find @ symbol tried shift and alt and number 2.bought in canada im now in uk

Being Canadian I can assure you that the @ symbol is produced by holding down the shift key and pressing the number 2. This keyboard may have a different setup, or you may need to change your language settings on your computer from Start>Control Panel.
Alternatively, you can open a virtual keyboard from Start>Programs>accessories>accessibilty>virtual keyboard

The number itself works but it has the symbol at for email addresses and it won't work.Have to copy and paste it to use it.

it is used with key combination of there are two shift buttons one on left and one on right side....if still it doesnt work check other symbols... For checking all the key that they are wirking or not open notepad and press all keys one by one also check all type ok combination keys that is for copy ctrl+c for paste ctrl+v.......
