MS Keyboard throws in the '@' symbol ONLY in PS (Windows 10)

I have a Microsoft Wireless Comfort Keyboard 1.0A that works flawlessly on my Windows 10 computer. I use office tools, browsers, notepads, IDE editors. No problem what so ever. The only gripe is Powershell. When typing the '@' symbol gets inserted in the text.

I'm showing this in the (silent) video I uploaded on YouTube (https://youtu.be/udIeyrAb3yU).

The problem manifest itself with multiple versions of PS.

What could be the root cause?

    PowerShell 5.1 is installed with Windows 10, but I don't see where you used that in any of your demonstrations. Have you tried that?

    Which version of PS7 are you running? If it's not 7.3 you should update PSReadline: about_psreadline before doing anything else.

    The video is based on 7.3 (opening shot shows the version).

    The issue was also present in other versions of PowerShell (the one that came with Windows 10, 7.1, 7.2).
