You are using Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager 14 Web Console with (Chrome, Firefox, or Internet Explorer) and want to search for a computer name that uses special characters. When you go to a client group and choose "Search clients" and in the Search Field, select Computer Name, in the Comparison Operator field, select = and in the Value field you type a computer name that uses special character(s), however when holding down the Shift key along with the corresponding special character key, it types a number or some other character instead.

Example: Holding down the Shift key and the %5 key, 5 is displayed instead of the percent sign %

When clicking out of the Value field and back in again, sometimes it will type the special character that you expected.
