When I press my @ key, the ” symbol appears onscreen instead, Why is this?

  • If the correct characters are not appearing when you type, it may be that the Windows regional settings are incorrect – the classic example is the @ and “ keys are switched around on US keyboards.
  • Click Start and select Control Panel. Go to Region and Language and select Keyboards and Languages.
  • Click Change keyboards and change the default input language to English (United Kingdom).
  • Press OK to finish on each window.
