Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I was typing an e-mail, and suddenly I noticed that instead of getting a ? when I pressed Shift /, I got the accented Spanish or French E. The ? and / are green letters on my Sony Vaio keyboard, but the accented E is a pink letter on the ? key. I obviously pressed some keys inadvertently to change from green to pink, but I don't know how. Could you tell me how to change back to green, and how to change between green and pink? Sincerely, Israel

Chose Canadin French instead of Canadian English by accident


Hello,
Yes you are right: it is a one time option. You can however install other languages. You will switch from the Canadian French keyboard to the US or English Canadian keyboard by pressing Shift Alt. You will console yourself if I told you that I type mainly in French, but the physical keyboard is US and I cannot even use the Alt + Ascii code to put the accents where due, because the laptop does not have numeric pad.

Hope it helps.

When typing question marks & puctuation...French comes up


In Control Panel, double click "Regional and Language Options". Click the Languages Tab and then the Details button. Make sure that English is selected as the Default Input Language. If French is listed as an available keyboard layout and you don't need it there, you can remove it to make sure it doesn't switch itself again.
I hope this helps. Good Luck.

Cannot get apostrophes or question marks


I just figured this out. Hold down your left shift key, then press CTRL. It may take a couple of times for it to work, but it will eventually.

On my logitech keyboard Y-BH52 my back slash, comma, forward slash and bracket keys are typing in what looks to be french characters such as A's with accents on them...if you could provide any assistance...


hmmm it seems by mistake you have changed your key-board layout to french language.
  • Hold down Alt and press Shift. (Alt+Shift). Check the result by pressing thoes keys. If its back to original means you have installed both English/French both and can toggle pressing Alt+Shift.
  • Otherwise goto Start -> Control Panel -> Regional And Language Option.
  • Click on Language Tab, then Details button.
  • Now in settings tab you can see the languages installed on your system. You can remove un-wanted or/and select a default languages which you want.

Please post your feed-back
Thanks
