Bluetooth Keyboard Settings

I purchased  a Bluetooth keyboard and case for my Samsung Tab S7 from ebay but now find that some  of the characters when typed are not correct using the shift key symbols.
I've  set the 'physical keyboard ' in settings to UK QWERTY, but it doesn't made any difference.
What I find mysterious is that I also have a Samsung Galaxy M31 phone and find that the keyboard works fine on it with settings the same on both units. Could it be that there is further settings that I'm not aware of?
When I try to type @, " appears, when I type ", the @ appears.

Thanks

What you have is a US layout keyboard but the Tablet thinks it should be UK. I also bought keyboard off ebay and have same issue with my Tab A.

I managed to resolve this issue by setting the physical keyboard setting to US English and now works as UK English??? I don't really understand it but it does work.

Go into Settings, Language and Input. Add English (United States) as a language. Then choose Physical Keyboard and open Samsung Keyboard (English UK). Here you can choose the language that you want the Bluetooth keyboard to use. I chose English US, qwerty style.

Once you have gone through this any time you use the Bluetooth keybord it will type the character as shown on the keyboard.

Alternatively you can compare the US keyboard with a normal UK computer keyboard and remember what the differences are!
