Steelseries Apex 100 symbols switched?? (Solved)

Thu Jul 30, 2020 8:28 am

Since last night, my keyboard has been typing wrong. When I would normally type a slash or question mark I instead get - and _, ñ and Ñ instead of colon and semi-colon, as well as ? and ' instead of hyphen and underscore. It looks like some of symbols keys switched around but I have no idea how to fix it. Does anyone know how to help?

You may have accidentally switched languages. If you have more than one language active on your system you can change it by hitting Alt+Shift -- which is easy to hit by accident.

Test the keyboard on another system. That will tell you whether the problem is with the keyboard itself, or a software configuration problem on your system.

We pair a lot at work and one of the coworkers preferred Dvorak layout. How funny and frustrating when we switch to be typing and forgot the IME switch! :lol:

Check whether any key pressed half way or not or else try to switch keyword to another system .
