I have Thinkpad T540p with Windows 8.1 installed. With US English keyboard set but i can't match some of the special characters because they are in different place psysically and only the letters and numbers are in place. Do i need to install something to make that change with some 3 party software or within the system? Can they match the exact place of the key and the character with it?

    I'm confused. Can you post a photo or something? – Appleoddity Oct 6 '17 at 4:46
  • It has characters such like Æ-Ø-Å and the dashes the brackets are not in the same place virtually for example if i press ":" it shows as "_" and the whole keyboard is like that. It has difference between the place of the characters on the psysical keys and the ones on the OS layot. – user221573 Oct 6 '17 at 7:18
  • Where the computer comes from? Looks like a Norwegian keyboard, see docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/globalization/keyboards/kbdno.html – JosefZ Dec 30 '17 at 21:25

If @ is on key with 2, it could be US keyboard layout. British and American keyboards
