Question Two keyboard keys not typing lettters that are on the keys.

Keyboard keys not typing symbol on the key. On my wife's laptop, the key that types lower case ' and upper case " is instead typing LC and UC . The key that should type LC / and UC ? is typing LC and UC . These are the only keys that seem to have been "translated". This is a new one for me and I don't have any idea how to fix it so the keys are typing what is on them. Any insight that anyone can provide will be greatly appreciated.

If you press Left Alt + Shift, it should cycle through them, likely how it changed in the first place.

Otherwise, you can also look for the Language Bar, should be either in the bottom right by the clock or along the top edge of your screen somewhere.
