    Hey guys

    So I have virtualized Xp thru Parallels 4 but here is the thing. I have installed an English version of XP and I have a French keyboard.

    Now where can I find the @ characters ?

    thank you

    The US english keyboard has the @ symbol above the number 2. So type Shift+2 will get it.

    you can always change your system keyboard to French so it matches up with your physical keyboard. I think you can access it through right-clicking an open area on the taskbar and opening the language toolbar.

    Not sure about the French keyboard (mine is British English), but when I'm in Parallels running XP SP3, I have to type shift-' to get an @ symbol (the key with the ' and " symbols on; two keys to the bottom-left of the return key, up and just to the left of the right shift key).

    I hope this helps …
