How to turn the blue function setting off

On my keys I have extra blue colored characters on them, some of them are french i know, and this has happened before but now I'm not sure how to fix it. Whenever I want to type a question mark, or any other key that involves a "shift" with with in msn messenger, it comes up the blue character instead. Like, a ? comes up as a capital E with an accent on the top. Not sure how to correct this, i know its as easy as pressing a button, but i've tried every one! I was just typing, and all of a sudden i can't use "?". Very annoying :S

    i have the same problem, and it`s not the num lock key. the only way i can fix it is by logging off and then logging back on...but that`s annoying if you have a lot of things open, or are in the middle of something important. help please

Did you install the Logitech Set Point software? If you did, you can edit the Function key assignments by opening that program. There are other ways to change your keyboard settings, pressing Left Alt and Shift can do this with Windows 7 by default. To check this in Windows 7, click Start > Control Panel. Under Clock, Language, and Region select Change Keyboard or other Input method. Once that window opens, click on the Keyboards and Languages tab and click Change Keyboards. Then select the Advanced Key Settings tab. There is a section marked Hot Keys for Input Language.

The manual and other documentation for the Logitech ex110 is available here: http://www.logitech.com/en-us/433/154?selectedcrid=433&selectedcid=154&WT.z_sp=Product&osid=&bit= .

I hope this helps.

How do I turn off French characters


Hello.
try pressing the left CTRL + SHIFT keys at the same time to switch it back over (You might need to press them a couple times).
From regional settings (regional and language settings) keyboards/change keyboards, you can remove all the keyboard you don't use and leave only the one you need.

Good luck

Instead of getting the @ symbol when I press shift +2 i get "


you need to hold down ctrl and function on the left side of your keyboard, and then hit the shift key on the right side of your keyboard. Then let go of right shift while still holding down the control and function keys, and then hit right shift again.

these blue keys are french keys. if you change your keyboard settings to english US or UK, it will get rid of the blue functions, but for some reason, they tend to turn themslves back on again after time. Most likely due to automatic updates followed by an auto restart. Also, I find that the issue only arises if I am in my hotmail account.....no issue in Word docs.

Asus X58Cseries with Windows Vista Basic has $ sign on 4 key but no pound sign. Any way of getting it? If not, I can live with it but would like to know either way.Cheers, Linda.


I'm an Asus X58C user in the UK and my keyboard is the same. I've not found an easy solution. The only way I can insert a £ character is this. Place your coursor where you want the character. Turn Numbers Lock on using the blue Fn and NumLk keys. Hold down the Alt key and then using the blue numbers keys type 0163. Release the Alt key and the £ character will appear. Turn Numbers Lock off using the blue Fn and NumLk keys again. Its laborious but it works, its how I typed it here. I also found out that if you hold down Ctrl and Alt and then press the 4 key, you type the euro character €. Hope this helps

That means that you turned on the numlock on the laptop keyboard, On an acer if im not mistaken you have to press one of the function keys to deactivate it. Look for the icon with NUM on it and press it. if that does not work you may have to press FN then that icon.

Logitech cordless desktop mx 3200 laser keyboard - french characters


Its not the keyboard fault but your operating system. I'm going to assume you live in Canada and when you had setup the computer for the first time you had selected Canada has country you live in instead of the United States (default) If you notice on your desktop or taskbar there will be a keyboard logo. Click it and select US 101 keyboard (United states). You get the french symbols because microsoft thinks because you live in Canada you must be french canadian.... stupid eh! They have it selected to mulitlingual Canadian. Select the US English as default and you shouldn't get those french symbols when you really want the shift or question mark key.

I live in Canada and I see looks of people who ask me the same question all the time.

Hope this helps!

Keyboard


that means that the keyboard has been set to a different language. On my screen at the bottom right hand is a little keyboard icon and when i click on it it lets me scroll through US English, Canadian French and Canadian Multilingual Standard. If the keyboard is set to the Canadian French option (or whatever other option that is available on your keyboard in red characters) the number two button changes function.
