I can't use the @ key on my PC keyboard in Apple Bootcamp/Windows 10

Recommended Posts

After changing to an iMac I created a Bootcamp partition into which I installed Windows 10 (64 bit) as the base for FSX.


Having bought a Logitech mk220 keyboard I find that the "@" key is unresponsive. I'm unlikely to use it with FSX but I'll still need it to write email addresses when required.


If this keyboard is not designed for Windows 10 is there a way around the problem?


Help would be appreciated.
