Hi there

in the control panel (start/settings/control panel), you will find the icon for international and languish settings, here you change it.

    When less than a quarter feel the need to vote for the effort some of us at FixYou offer, I think to myself, ”is it worth it”.

    They get help, and do not care to thank you; “thank you” do not cost a dime, so why????

How do i get the at sign for emails?


It depends on the keyboard. If your physical keyboard does not match the language set by the operating system, the wrong information will appear when you type certain keys.
For US English keyboards, @ is shift+2.
For UK keyboards, @ is shift+' (the key which is two steps to the right of the "L" key.)
For French "AZERTY" keyboards, @ is the right-Alt key and 0 (zero)
Ensure that your operating system is set to know which kind of keyboard you are using, who what you see matches the keys on the keyboard. For example, in Windows 7, this is Control Panel -> Region and Languages.

I had the exact same problem with my keyboard (KU-0883). What you want to do is first go into your "Control Panel". From there under "Hardware and Sound", go to "View Devices and Printers". Right Click on your USB Keyboard and go to "Region and Language". Under the "Keyboard and Languages" tab click on "Change Keyboard". From the "General" Tab click on "Add". Scroll down to "English (Canada)" and expand it by hitting +. Uncheck "Canadian French" and "Canadian Multilingual Standard". Then press "OK". After which you press "Apply" and "OK". Give your computer a quick reboot and your good to go.

Changing from french to english characters. For some reason my keyboard is creating french characters on my screen. I must have hit a combination of keys to do this.


This may vary depending on your version of Windows but it should be basically the same: go into control panel, bring up "region and language" then the third tab, "keyboards and languages". The the first button on that screen, "change keyboards". This screen has a drop-down menu with a list of languages such as English - United States (or presumably whichever one you're looking for).

Note I set my control panel view to "small icons". In category view it's under clock/language/region. Hope I was able to help!

Something happened and now my computer is putting french accents where I don't want them. My question mark for example turns into a big E with an accent.


For Windows XP: Check the Regional and Language Options panel in your Control Panels (Languages tab, then Details) to make sure that your keyboard is set for English:Keyboard:US. If it isn't, change it to that.

I have a logitech keyboard (model S10) and some how I switched it on to it's french keyboard setting. How do I cahnce it back to the english keyboard setting. Thanks!


delete the French from the keyboard setup section in windows, to cycle between them there should be a little box on the task bar if it is not locked this will, if clicked, offer selection of languages you have installed to use on the computer.En will be English and Fr is French etc etc.
