Hi,
Not sure what setting I've changed but when i type a single or double quotation mark nothing happens unless I type something after it...

Running winxp 64

Almost certainly you have changed the keyboard language selected to 'US International'. Change it to UK or plain US or whatever you usually use in Control Panel, Keyboard, Language tab.

So what application are you using while typing?

For example I am typing this into the PressF1 window.

"This works for me"

'This also works for me'

Even " ' This works ' "

{ This works }

I think.

No. Just US. UK changes other keys.

ok.. It's stopped, not sure what I did, I played around with regional settings, it didnt work, it must have been the restart afterwards. It happened when i typed into any window, wordpad, command promt, firefox.

O well. problem sorted, thanks guys :banana
