Hi,
My PC has just come back from having a new motherboard fitted & the position of the @ & " are reversed.There is also no pound sign above 3. Can I reinstate the characters in their correct places, please.
Many thanks

✔ Best Answer
Go to Control Panel > Regional and Language Options > Regional Options tab and see if you are set to the language of your country - select from drop down arrow if necessary. Seems like you are in the UK and are set for USA.

If it is only in MS Office products (such as Word and Excel) then they have their own settings.

Please come back and let us know the outcome.
