I haven't tried it on my computer, but the info comes from Microsoft website, so...

I went to Microsoft website in UK (it's probably available elsewhere). I selected Downloads and Trials. After, I clicked on the first image (Download Center). In the search bar, instead of All Download, I selected Drivers and indicated in the other bar, keyboard layout. It brings you to a window where you can download a file to modify the keyboard properties.

Keyboard key type" instead of


Hello, it's not a problem with your keyboard, it's a settings problem with Windows. You need to go into Control Panel settings, find the Keyboard section, and you'll probably find an Advanced tab. (Depends on your Windows version) Anyway, you need to change your Country type from whatever it's set to (probably US) to UK. From memory, you have to ADD the UK keyboard, and DELETE the US one.You'll then have to reboot to make changes. Hope this helps! nicam49

I agree with cra1901. An alternative way of changing the layout is: right clicking on your taskbar and select "language bar". When this is done, right click on the keyboard symbol and select "settings". Change the default language (to UK) and your keyboard should type correctly.

Keyboard problem


Hi,
A recent Microsoft update is probably responsible for this. It will have changed your keyboard settings from English UK to English US.

Here is how to set it right >>>>>>

Click on the start menu and click control panel. From the list in control panel click on Regional and Language Options.
Click on the Languages tab and then click on the Details button.
In that list you will both language settings (US and UK).
Click on English US and click on remove. (If English UK is not in the list click on "Add" and select English UK as the default keyboard settings).
The computer will tell you that the language cannot be removed until you log off or something similar of that nature.
Click Yes and then Apply and Apply and OK in the other window.

Then click on the start menu and log off your account.
Re-log on and the keyboard settings should be changed to UK.

If you require anymore help please feel free to post back.


Regards.

My keyboard letter types wrongly to type @ I have to press shift and 2


UK keyboards use a different key for @.
If you wish to change the keyboard layout, you can do this by right clicking on your taskbar and select "language bar". When this is done, right click on the keyboard symbol and select "settings". Change the default language (to UK) and your keyboard will type correctly.
