    Hi,
    on my new pc, when typing the @ for emails I have to press the Commas button and when typing commas I need to press the @ button. There reversed round. I know its only a small thing but is it possible to change them the right way round or is this permanently fixed.

    thanks for any replies

    You're probably in Europe, and the default install for Windows is US standard, so you will need to go into your Control Panel, and Regional Settings and change it to your Region. On the Input Locale tab, you can change the Keyboard language to the one you want to use.

    I read a story recently about a tech who had a customer complaining about the keys not typing the right letters. It turned out the customer had taken the key buttons off and put them back on alphabetically so she find them easily.
