I started to use a Mac mini with Turkish keyboard. However, macOS High Sierra has only Turkish Q and Turkish Q Legacy keyboard options. If I remember correctly almost one year ago I was using a MacBook in a virtual machine and when I chose to Turkish QWERTY PC option, every key was working as I expected. This option was removed now I think. And some keys and combination of keys don't work or represent totally different charters or symbols.

I tried to change my location but it didn't help me at all.

How can I fix this annoying issue?

  • Turkish Q keyboard is still in options. – Ruskes Sep 22 '18 at 5:52
  • Did you try both of the options? – user255044 Sep 22 '18 at 5:53
  • Yes I tried both of the options. Turkish Q is %90 percent is match, however some charcters like < > is in wrong place also some charcters like " is not shown at all. – blocker Sep 22 '18 at 5:54
  • support.apple.com/en-ca/HT201794 in this link, Turkey - (TQ) the keyword with numeric keypad is the exactly same as my keyboard. – blocker Sep 22 '18 at 5:55

Here is a copy I made of my Turkish QWERTY PC layout from El Capitan in case that helps.

If <> is on the topmost leftmost key instead of next to the left shift, you may have a Keyboard Type Problem, where your machine thinks the keyboard is ANSI instead of ISO. The link suggests some possible fixes.

  • Thank you but your copy is the exact same the Turkish Q keyboard layout in my system. Nothing changed. – blocker Sep 23 '18 at 4:31
  • @blocker so you probably have the other problem I mentioned, wrong keyboard type, right? – Tom Gewecke Sep 23 '18 at 10:10
  • Yes definitely. Actually, I rented a mac mini on macincloud.com but their service is terrible. They tend not to help with this issue. I am not allowed to change keyboard type. I don't know why they don't change my keyboard type from ANSI to ISO. Anyway, here is the lesson for today: Don't use macincloud.com. They are not changing even small features in their system. – blocker Sep 24 '18 at 5:27
  • @blocker so you are talking about a mini you are using by remote access from a pc? You really need to state that in your question, it is a totally different situation – Tom Gewecke Sep 24 '18 at 10:55
  • It is totally the same situation. I talked with Apple and they say that "you need to change your keyboard type to ISO". But macincloud.com doesn't allow me to do that because of their great(!) and very very limited service. – blocker Sep 24 '18 at 16:20
