  • You need to use a keyboard layout which matches your physical keyboard. So in order to help you, we need to know both for which language your physical keyboard is designed and which keyboard layout (a setting) you have applied. A pic of your physical keyboard would help. – Gunnar Hjalmarsson Feb 14 '18 at 16:35
  • Go to the top right corner set of icons and select the screwdriver-wrench icon to open settings. Then on the left panel select "Region and Language" You will see input sources, and below it the layouts installed. By default it should say "English (UK)" only. – user68186 Feb 14 '18 at 16:36

Go to the settings and in the language section, add English(Australian) as that will correct your keyboard layout.
