    Hey guys :)
    Didn't know where to post this, but thought folks here would know the answer.

    I just got a Mac mini, and I'm using a Dell keyboard from my XPS 630. Everything works, but I can't find the @ key...
    Leopard doesn't seem to recognize @. What do you people use for your emails???

    Is there a @ key on mac keyboards?

    Shift + 2
    Just like on a PC .. should be the same for your Dell keyboard

    UK Keyboard has the @ to the right of the L and the ; key.
    I'd imagine you can swap them to that position if you prefer the @ there, and "'s as shift 2.

    Eh? No it doesn't. The UK keyboard has the @ key on the 2 key.

    Shift + 2 = @.

    Edit : Ah, he's using a PC keyboard. They annoy the pants off me with their @ key placement.

    Just to confuse matters, here in Italy it's alt + the key to the right of L (on a mac!) :rolleyes: It's taking me a while to get used to that one.
