On the main screen, select the wrench.
Then, select the Gears, which is the upper left box. This is "Settings". Hit the arrow down to go to the second screen.
"Language" is the second choice, select it and you'll be able to toggle to the language of choice.

you probably have "English (United Kingdom)" installed instead of "English (United States)" or vice versa.

How do I change the country on my Garmin nuvi 255W?


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Stuff happens. Try this:

This may be a result of a previous software version on a device or possibly some one changing the settings. If a device does power on with a foreign language that you can not understand it can be corrected by going through the settings to change the text language.
To change the text language:
  1. Touch Wrench icon on the screen with the Magnifying Glass and Map icon
  2. Touch the Gears icon
  3. Touch the down arrow
  4. Touch the second option from the top1
  5. Touch the middle blue box on right
  6. Touch the up arrow until American English appears2
  7. Touch American English
  8. Touch OK
  9. Touch Back
The device should be in selected text language.
Note 1 - In some cases, if there are Custom POIs loaded to the device then it may be the first option at the top.
Note 2 - If American English is not the language needed, please selected the desired language

Why cant i type the @ sign on my samsung n310


It sounds like your keyboard is set to the United Kingdom and not The United States. Go to the control panel > regional settings and languages > go through each tab and setting and change to United States, including the last tab on right that lists location, it must be United States and the keyboard. Just go through it and make sure everything is changed. Hit apply and reboot when done.

How to make question mark and at keys


If you are hitting Shift and the number 2 and getting a quotation mark instead of the @ sign....then your keyboard is not set up for the United States. Go to control panel > regional and language settings > go through all tabs and buttons and make sure they all say either (United States) or English - (United States). Always hit apply after each setting reboot when finished with all. Make sure the location and english (united States) keyboard is added.

Panasonic toughbook cf-w7--cannot get the symbols above the numbers to work with the shift key --other things appear -like '' instead of the àt symbol above the 2 key


It sounds like your computer is set up for the United Kingdom and not The United States....lol enough to drive ya crazy isn't it. Not to fear, this is how you change it.

Go to start > Settings > Control Panel > Regional and Language Options > Now here we will take our time and go through all the tabs because there are different settings that have to be changed and when we are done, re-boot the system and you are all set. First tab to click on is "Regional Options" go to the bottom and change your location to "United States". Hit apply after each change, dont re-boot until we are done with all the changes. Now in the upper window, change the standards and formats to (english) United States. Now click on the language tab, on the settings tab, change the input to language to English-United States. In the installed services window below that make sure that english-United States is added and you can delete the United Kingdon if it is there. click apply and ok and you're done with that tab. Now move over to the advanced tab and select English (United States) and hit apply...do not worry about the window under that...code page conversion, just reboot and enjoy an American Keyboard. Good Luck, ParrotHead PC Repair
