For that simple question, here's the simple answer: I TOO DON'T KNOW. Ask the computer. :))
naah, just kiddin, now here's the answer and explanation. I will explain it to you veryyyy briefly...

"Keyboards use a variety of switch technologies. Capacitive switches are considered to be non-mechanical because they do not physically complete a circuit like most other keyboard technologies. Instead, current constantly flows through all parts of the key matrix. Each key is spring-loaded and has a tiny plate attached to the bottom of it. When you press a key, it moves this plate closer to the plate below it. As the two plates move closer together, the amount of current flowing through the matrix changes. The processor detects the change and interprets it as a key press for that location. Capacitive switch keyboards are expensive, but they have a longer life than any other keyboard. Also, they do not have problems with bounce since the two surfaces never come into actual contact."

haha.

seriously, its because you have set the Main Language or the keyboard language to UNITED KINGDOM @#$$@ language. Anyway, its also an english setting.
Let me fix it for you, just bring your computer here :P

Just go to control panel >> Clock, Languge, Region >> keyboards and languages >> Change Keyboards
and add the United States or Philippines or any english-speaking country. LOL. 
and delete/remove the UK settings
