    Hello again.
    My keyboard language is not in english and there is one very uncomfortable thing - to get an @ sign i have to press
    Ctrl + Alt + 2. Is there a way to change just one combination, the @ sign - to get it same way as english keyboard?

    Hi Vibalik,

    it's not possible to change just one item of your keyboardlayout. You'd have to change the entire keyboard layout to, for instance, 'US-International'. But this will probably effect more than 1 key in your case.

    Another option would be to write a VisualBasic script that runs on the background and emulates a certain keycommand to the @sign. Check out the web for how-to's for this sollution.

    Good luck.

Can't use Ctrl+Shift+0 (Windows has it)
Control-shift-zero usable w/in apps. The following was true under Windows 7: An input method editor (IME) keyboard shortcut lets you switch the input language. By design, the CTRL+SHIFT+0 key assignment is standard for all users. However, some applications might use this keyboard shortcut...
