You have keyboard language set to English (United Kingdom), which gives " with SHIFT+2 and with SHIFT+3. If you need an English keyboard layout that gives @ with SHIFT+2 and # with SHIFT+3, you need to change the layout to English (United States).

Here you can see the difference. First UK English:
