    Red symbols on laptop keyboard

    ....Just brought home a Toshiba Satellite laptop and am unable to use Red
    symbols on keyboard.
    This particular button contains five symbols blue < (lesser than), blue ,
    (comma), red , (comma), red apostrophe, and red - (dash).
    I am unable to use or activate the red symbols.
    I just want to use the @%^*#!! apostrophe - Help! Geek Squad was unable to
    answer...ditto for the guys at Best Buy where I purchased it. Tutorial also
    appears to not address the issue.
    Thanks

    Simultaneously press the Fn key and your desired key.
