Now, here is the weird thing. It does not do it when I type online like here. Here the \ works fine. But, in other programs, it does not work correctly when I type it.
It works fine in Microsoft Word, but the most obvious problem is when I try to install a new program or I see the backslashes in the address of a file on the computer.
In these cases, I do see the W with the horizontal line, not the backslash.
It doesn't appear the keyboard is defective, but something is not being interpreted correctly by the computer in SOME programs.
Any idea what this may be? It is not a problem causing major problems, but is a bit grating.
