    Hi!

    I´m unable to type @ in Word 2010 with the on-screen keyboard in Windows 8.1 64-bit.
    It works in other programs such as notepad and Excel 2010.

    Odd. No such problem with mine: Any problem with any other characters?

    Can you do it with your physical keyboard?

    No it´s just the @.
    Have both a usb-keyboard attached to a docking station and a Surface Pro 3 keyboard
    and they are working just fine.

    The language for the keyboard is Swedish so I will try to change it to English and see if that
    makes any difference.

    The Surface is not mine so I will post the results as soon as I got a chance to try it.

    Have tested it now and it works when changing the keyboard language to English so there
    must be some bug with the Swedish on-screen keyboard.

    Have you tried switching to the numeral/symbols pay of the keyboard?

    Yes, doesn't make a difference.

    Does pasting an @ in Word work?
    If so I guess you'll have to have Notepad open with a page full of @ symbols. :)
    Until they fix it.
