Default Nexus 7 Keyboard

I have lost the @ sign on my Nexus 7 keyboard, it was replaced with a microphone symbol and I can't seem to find it anywhere. Any suggestions on how to get it back please.

Hey dave! Welcome to AF!!

I moved your thread here so others with your device can help out
Did your keyboard change after some sort of update?

Hi Mike, it belongs to my wife, who says it was there a couple of days ago but is unsure whether or not there was an update inbetween.
She is still finding her way around with it, being a bit of a technophobe, I'm not much help.

Well...you could either find another keyboard app to replace the stock one or is there a letter, that when long pressed, pulls up the option for the "@" sign?

Hi Dave,

Hold down the microphone button, some other options should pop up.

Also, depending on the field you are in, different symbols appear. The @ key and .com key show up when you are in an email address field and some others. I use "Kii" keyboard, it's very configurable, but the android one does the job.

Oh so embarrasing, tcat007 is correct. I only noticed the @ was missing whilst I was typing in the address bar all the time I was searching for it. Thanks for all your help I'm a little wiser now.
