[Overview]

If you are unable to type @, ~, #, or other keys when pressing the corresponding keys on the keyboard, your keyboard may be set to an improper keyboard language.  An example of this is when you press Shift + 2 to type a @, a “ appears instead.

2. Click “Date, Time, Language, and Regional Options”.
