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.

1) Try to clean/repair the keyboard
 

2a) In windows, create an empty text document

2b) Start | Run | type in "charmap" (without quotes)

2c) Settings - Font = Arial, Character Set = Unicode

2d) Click on the "@" in the list, click on "Select" then "Copy

2e) Paste into the empty text doc & save (for future use)

2f)  Use "copy",  "paste" from text doc to use

 

3a) in windows, press "alt"and hold

3b) while pressing "alt" type in "64"  on numpad
