    When I try and type and open Bracket nothing happens. I can only type closed bracket. ) I must have changed something in my keyboard set up awhile ago which messed things up. I have just been avoiding the use of the open bracket but I really need to use them now. How can I fix it and get my open bracket back and able to work? Thanks.

    You could go to System Preferences->Keyboard->Keyboard Shortcuts and check that you haven't assigned Shift+9 to a shortcut somewhere.

    In my keyboard shortcuts. There are 3 titles. On with a check box, Description and Shortcut. Under F9 the description is All windows and it is checked. I am not sure what I am looking for. I must have sometime changed the number 9 key when I shift. How can I put it back.

    Go through the different lists on the left side and click Restore Defaults for each. If it's not in Keyboard shortcuts, it could also be in Universal Access preferences or Speech preferences.
