Question ' and @ on a UK keyboard doesn't work unless held for 2 seconds


Mar 12, 2019
I'm on Windows 10 and got a UK keyboard and when I want to type ' or @ I need to press it for a good second for it to show up, but when it does show up it spams '''''''''''' or @@@@@@@ so I always have to backspace it every time which is annoying and also it takes too long for it to appear on screen.

It's definitely not a keyboard issue since I've tested it with a physical US layout keyboard as well on the UK Windows keyboard setting and it's the same issue. But when I switch from UK to US then those buttons work perfectly

Sticky keys were off as default if anyone and I've done a Windows reset as well.
