I am borrowing a work laptop which runs Windows 10 Pro. I am in Australia. The keyboard does strange things for some characters, e.g.:
- shift-3 gives the pound symbol instead of #
- shift-2 gives " instead of @, and shift-single-quote gives @ instead of "
- shift-backslash gives ~ instead of |
The last one is the worst because I can't find any way to make the | symbol, so I cannot do some bash shell commands I need.
Settings-Language says I am using English (United States), which I think is correct.
Settings-Devices-Typing-Advanced keyboard settings gives me only the choice between "English (Australia) United Kingdom" and "English (United States) United Kingdom". Either setting does the same thing. Or do I need to reboot after changing?
Also the backslash key gives #. Which is good that I can make a #, but bad because I cannot make a \ . I can't find any way to make | or \ , other than go into an editor and cut and paste.
