IMPORTANT: If you cannot use a '@' is because, while using the Remote Desktop, is probably because your computer has an American keyboard. So when using the Remote Desktop it turns into a UK one. In order to find the '@' in the UK keyboard press Shift and " (double quotation mark on your keyboard - second key from the right of the letter L)
