Upper Case Symbols

14 posts in this topic

Please can anyone tell me how I  can get the pound, dollar, percentage, ampersand etc to appear in my replies to posts.

 

When I hit Caps and 2 3 4 5  I get @ # $ %. Now that I look, it is the quotation marks and the pound symbol that are absent and the dollar and percent are OK. Very Strange.

 

Thanks in advance for any help

try holding down the shift button (the button below the caps lock) & pressing the £ or " " .....

 

if that does not work try ....

 

sometimes the @ button & the " " button get switched so hold down shift & press the @ button & maybe the quotation will come up instead ... same with £ and #

 

should fix ur problem

Is this just punternet, or does it happen in word processing etc.

 

you may have a foreign keyboard driver instead of a GB one. Could be a US one.

check if your @  and the "  are reversed - if so it'll be that your keyboard in the control panel needs to be set to UK rather than US

I have checked word and the keyboard gives me the symbols OK. It seems to be just on P'net. 

 

I have set my keyboard to UK.

 

The problem only arose today. Before then it was fine.

 

Thanks to all for your help I will keep searching for a fix.

Google chrome crashed while I was watching TV. When I powered up again the problem had gone. Not sure how or why but clearly these machines have minds of their own.

 

Thanks for the offers of help

And the reason is that it quite often works, with all sorts of things.

And if that doesn't work, try closing all the windows, and opening the door.
