I have a brand new MacBook Air which I got in July.
With no warning whatsoever, some of the keys have started going wonky. For example, the apostrophe is a kind of bracket as is the quotes key.
°!”#$%&/()=?¡ is the top row. Colon is Ñ, semi colon is ñ.
; is the greater than sign. : is the less than sign.
You get the idea. The letters are working just fine.
If someone can help me out, I would be most appreciative BIG time!
I didn’t drop the laptop and I didn’t spill anything on it.
The letter keys are working just fine.
Maybe your keyboard layout got changed somehow? Check System Preferences → Keyboard → Input Sources.
It definitely sounds like you changed the keyboard to an international layout, maybe unintentionally!
I tried that. I am not sure what I am doing wrong. I speak Spanish so I have two keyboards or at least I want to.
If you want to have both keyboard layouts available, see “Switch between input sources” in the support document that @Rob_Polding posted for how to do that:
I added another Spanish, from Spain.
I tried using each language, but not the emoji.
I deleted the two Spanish keyboards and left only the American one. The problem is now fixed!!! Thanks ever so much for putting on the right track!!!
