Just starting with Mathematica and this is a weird problem that probably has an easy solution: When I type certain keys on the keyboard, the screen shows something totally different. For example, hitting the left square bracket gives an @ symbol. [=@ ) Hitting a shift-9 to get a left paren gives a capital letter. H, I think. The keyboard works normally in other programs liike Word, etc. Is this a simple configuration issue? thanks, N
