Keyboard settings after update

Following the recent Windows 10 “April 2018 ” update a number of people have had an issue with their keyboards suddenly typing alternative characters. This is mostly seen when someone tries to type an email address and types a ” instead of a @ symbol.

The reason for this is that during the update you would have been given the option to select a keyboard type, and the default is a US one, so if you missed this you will have ended up with this issue.

The solution is very simple though. On the taskbar, just to the left of the time and date you will see the letters “ENG”, see below.

Click on “ENG” and you will get the option to select a language and keyboard layout.

Select the top one to get back to a standard UK keyboard layout.

There’s also a video below which takes you through it.
