I don't know whether I should ask here:

In different PC, sometimes I press the '@' key but got '"' in the editor window, sometimes I need to try more than 10 keys to find the '#' key....

How to set the key board?

In the control panel, you have to set your keyboard to english-us.

I use the French canadian setting and I have the same problem. If you have a windows keyboard, you can press the right ALT key and the 2 key to have @.

I have configured the keyboard (in the control panel) to have to different keyboard installed. Now, I can press the left ALT key and right SHIFT key to switch between those two keyboard!

Easy no!!!

Hi

I increased the points and hope to get more help from you :-)

I can use only English (and not very good, and not like you know several languages).
What I want is: when press a key, I want the charecter marked on the key appears on the screen. At the moment, when I press key <@>, a <"> appears on the screen....

I tried to start the control panel. The only options are different languages...

Only to make sure we talk the same thing:
1. Go to the Control Panel.
2. Open the Keyboard option.
3. Go to the Language tab.
4. Add "English (United States)" to the list.
5. Select this new line and press the Properties button.
6. Ensure you are select "United states 101".
7. Select this new line and press the Set as default button.
8. Press the Apply button.

Once done, you should now have the @ if you press SHIFT-2!

Is it working?
