    and what do u press to use it. A m8 of mine has got a PC for his kids, and
    its an upgrade from 95-98, but the keyboard layout is on USA. so he cant
    seem to use the @ key (well find it).

    Was this a trick question thing? The standard american keyboard is the same
    as practically the original typewriter configuration.
    Being so damn bloody necessary on the intermet, you would think that
    manufacturers would make the stupid thing easy enough to find.
    Kind of like Homer Simpson asking "Where's the 'any' key"?

    Pay no attention to him. To answer your question, the @ key is shift+2.

    m8, say it fast, run the words together.. you get mate...

    the abbreviated version is popular with those that support that convention
    (if it is indeed a convention).. particularly SMS texters...

    Why doesn't yourr mate change the keyboard to a UK one? To change
    keyboard locale:

    Start->Settings->Control Panel->Keyboard-Input Locales->Add

    and select a English (United Kingdom)

    Regards
