    Hi edbulmer,

    Are you in western Canada? I only ask as the replaces the ? on a Canadian multilingual board.

    Please check your current language and region settings are correct

    Incidentally, if you hold down ALT and type 64 you can insert a @ using a keyboard that doesn't have that key functioning.
    ie The keystroke "Alt+64" outputs @

    Edit: And welcome to the forum

    You've changed the settings? I'd have probably kept it as it is and moved to Quebec. You'd have had the excitement of living somewhere new plus your keyboard would have been ready to go...a win-win situation in the WhyMe book of life.
