    Keyboard Settings

    A belated Happy New Year to all.

    After reinstalling Windows XP I now have to hit the @ key to get " and vice versa. I've checked my language and keyboard settings in the Control Panel but all seems OK there. I'm probably missing something simple. Any ideas?

    TIA

    Re: Keyboard Settings

    This sounds like you have a UK keyboard with US keyboard settings, or vice versa.

    > I've checked my language and keyboard settings in the Control Panel

    Can you be a bit more explicit here. Where on your keyboard are the " and @ keys, and what values have you set for language and keyboard.

    Hi Stuart.

    The "key is the shift 2 key and the " key is the shift ' key, ie standard. All other shift operations seem to work as expected. I've supplied a screenshot of the settings.

    Thanks

    Hi rob,

    Best wishes for 2008!

    What does the Languages tab in the same dialog say?

    Re: Keyboard Settings

    Can you try this...
    <UL><LI>Right click the taskbar and from the Toolbars menu select Language
    <LI>Click the down arrow on the Language bar and choose Settings...
    <LI>Compare your display to this one[/list]Also please clarify
    > The "key is the shift 2 key and the " key is the shift ' key, ie standard
    Is this a UK keyboard with the @ key on the shift ', or a US keyboard with the @ key on the shift 2?

    Re: Keyboard Settings

    Thanks Stuart and Hans for the input. Sorry for the delay in responding - power problems.
    I compared my settings with your graphic. Their was an additional US entry which I removed. All is now well and yes, it is a UK keyboard.

    All the best for 2008.
