The @ key is lost on a "Standard" keyboard. Can not enter settings to change things.

Setting up a new computer selected "Standard" as the keyboard type from a drop down menu. This was before signing in with Mictosoft. Now I can not sign in to MS because I can not find the @ key to enter my email. Where is the @ key on a "Standard" keyboard. (Not a US or English keyboard). The computer is a Pendo. Thanks for your help.

Sorry, the Y and Z are interposed. So QWERTY is QWERTZ.
QWERTZ is a legitimate keyboard, with an @ in there somewhere ( IBM doc you referenced).

On my keypad Standard as a type doesn't get a mention anywhere I am looking.

Not to worry though. I've found a solution: Fn/F10/insert has changed everything back to
where I expect them to be.

Thanks again for your help.

Standard is the keys for the @ should be SHIFT 2, or ALT 0 ref : https://www-01.ibm.com/software/globalization/topics/keyboards/physical.html

now before argument breaks out what is standard here is the quicker solution;

Pendo is an application your still running windows, assuming your using windows 10;
1. bottom right near clock click on the notification icon, then select all settings
2 in the top search bot, type on screen keyboard why? because it will show you the layout.
if you need to change the layout in all settings search box, type keyboard and select edit language and keyboard options

Thanks The Paladin. Unfortunately, that doesn't help. The Pendo is hardware, not an app. Windows is installed but can't be used until I activate it. I can not sign into MS at all because I can't sign in to MS without an @ in my email. The selection "Standard" was one of about twenty in a drop down menu.

So I've got this weird keyboard. The Q and Z are exchanged as are a few other characters. Shift 2 gives " And
Shift " gives an accented C
