Answers :

Hi,
The physical layout on a UK keyboard will have the @ key next to the return/enter key.
The number 2 key will have speech marks. US keyboard is reversed.

Now if this is the case with your keyboard follow this instruction>>>>

Click on the start menu and click control panel. From the list in control panel click on Regional and Language Options.
Click on the Languages tab and then click on the Details button.
In that list you will both language settings (US and UK).
Click on English US and click on remove or the setting you don't want.
The computer will tell you that the language cannot be removed until you log off or something similar of that nature.
Click Yes and then Apply and Apply and OK in the other window.

Then click on the start menu and log off your account.
Re-log on and the keyboard settings should be changed to UK.

If you require anymore help please feel free to post back.
