How to fix swapped Keyboard key problem (e.g., " instead of @) by remapping keyboard layout - Windows 10

@ and " keys swapped??? Fix it now

I noticed this problem when I try to send an email. When I press the key @ it does not show up; instead, it shows “ sign. To know what is happening, I click “ button. The “ does not appear until the next keystroke.
What if I input these signs with On-Screen Keyboard? I enabled On-Screen Keyboard Then I realized that the pattern of keys on On-Screen Keyboard has been different from my keyboard.

Solution

Even though most of the keyboard uses QWERTY US keyboard pattern, the keys of a keyboard may vary across the region. You have to remap the keys as in your keyboard.

1. Go to the Windows settings / control panel   >   Time & Language   >   Region & Language
windows_10_settings_screenshot

2. Click option on your preferred language pack.
windows_10_settings_Region_and_Language

3. Under Keyboard's click 'Add a keyboard.'
4. Submenu shows the available keyboard layout. Select the layout of your Keyboard (Choose your country or choose the US because it is currently most popular Keyboard layout)
windows_10_add_keyboard

5. Now you can remove old keyboard layout.
windows_10_remove_keyboard

6. Done. Your keyboard is successfully remapped.
