On keyboard layouts

How to type an @

So we've been having a great time with the variety of keyboard layouts we've encountered and had frequently been thwarted from typing the ubiquitous @, an absolutely devastating handicap when trying to e-mail people or even login to your own. Anyway,I eventually found the Windows on-screen keyboard app which shows the current keyboard layout and what the modifier keys will do when pressed. It hides under Start/Programs/Accessories/Accessibility/On-Screen Keyboard, which is fun to find in Spanish. The easiest way to access it is to press the "Windows key + R" to bring up the Run prompt, then just type in "osk" and hit Enter. Happy typing.

Hold down Alt and type 64 on the keypad for a quick @.
