EDIT: Nevermind, I've figured it out! It turns out that pressing shift and the left alt keys changes the layout of your keyboard. I just pressed it again and it went back to UK style. What a silly shortcut that is.


I hope this is the right place to post this. I was just doing stuff online and all of a sudden, my UK layout keyboard has changed to the US layout! It seemed to happen after I did the alt+tab command but I accidentally held shift when I did this and wondered if this has affected it somehow. Perhaps I hit a shortcut which for some reason changes the layout to US style. I have no idea.

Al I know is that even if I go in to the control panel and the keyboard options, it still says it's in the UK format. But when I try to use it, it's in the US style (e.g. hitting the shift+2 keys does an @ symbol instead of ").

Can anyone here help me please? Many thanks.
