    My MS keyboard is behaving weirdly. When I press shift+2, it gives " instead of @

    Likewise other keys have their symbols swapped.

    Problem came up after installing windows 8 but am not too sure I should be blaming MS for it.

    Is it software or hardware issue? Any ideas?

    All you need to do is change your keyboard language settings from American and put it to British english :) hope this helps

    I am unsure as to if
    Means it is now solved. If so would you kindly so mark your topic by clicking on the Mark Solved button on your post

    If it is NOT solved
