Re: Keys on keyboard

Try changing the language from English(US) to English(UK)
The Yanks have not only a different language - but also a different keyboard layout to us Brits :-)

When I press apostrophe quotes they don't appear. But when I press the button a second time, then I get double ( "" ) and have to backspace to get single quotations ( " ) How do I fix this?

Download the Microsoft settings utility for this keyboard and check through the options settings, especially for "smart quotes." The smart quote, if enabled, may not show up at either end of the quoted phrase until you press the apostrophe/quote key the second time; then both will show in their proper places, and one of the quote marks will be inverted (a nice style touch, if you want it).

How can i override the green keys; for ex. the question mark key and apostrophe

Try left alt and shift key together. If that does not work go to control panel then region and language settlings then keyboard options. One of the tabs in there should tell you what keys you have to enter to switch languages.

Messed up keys

try hitting the left alt and the left shift button together, then try it out by pressing shift question mark. I had the exact same problem and i think you can alternate between french and english keys by hitting these two buttons together.
