Trying to do a restore of a system image using file history WIN 10. Every time I try this or a system reset, a screen appears which asks me to choose my keyboard layout. How do I select a choice?


in the settings or properties of the keyboard you will find a list of keyboard lay outs
one is british(english) which puts the letters in different positions to an American ( english ) keyboard
If I remember rightly , the list includes keyboards in different languages
select the one suitable for your language ( be careful between the british and american layouts ( both known as qwerty boards) as certain keys and key functions will be different
select what you want, apply and ok

    Add an input language

    You can edit documents in multiple languages by changing the language (the input language) in which you type. Input languages are included with Windows, but you need to add them to your list of languages before you can use them.

    1. Open Regional and Language Options by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.png, clicking Control Panel, clicking Clock, Language, and Region, and then clicking Regional and Language Options.

Change your keyboard layout

You can customize your keyboard for a specific language or format by changing the keyboard layout. The layout controls which characters appear on the screen when you press the keys on your keyboard. Some input languages have several keyboard layouts; others have only one. For example, you can change your keyboard layout from the English QWERTY format to the English Dvorak format. After you change the layout, the characters on your screen might not correspond to the characters on your keyboard keys.

Before you can change the keyboard layout, you must add the input language and keyboard layout that you want to use to Windows. For more information, see Add an input language.

I received a ku-0833 keyboard but no manual. What do the function key symbles mean? Also, where can I get the keyboard user's manual?


The US International English keyboard layout is recommended for those who are comfortable with the qwerty keyboard and need a variety of accent marks or symbols. It uses an intuitive method which works with most (perhaps all) Windows applications such as MS Office and web page software, while keeping the familiar qwerty layout. The installation details are below.

To use, press one of the five punctuation keys `? ~? ^ ?' ? "? , then the letter to be modified.?
' + a = ?,? " + u = ?,? ' + c = ? ? ? etc

Or use the right alt (or AltChar) key? + another key:?
right alt? + / = ¿??? + 1 = ¡???? + c = ©???? + e? = ???? +5 = €. ? This image shows many more.
iekeyboard.gif

Note that this system maintains the "qwerty" layout. However, the modifier keys `? ~? ^ ?' ? "? must sometimes be followed by pressing the space bar when they are actually intended. The system accepts common words, such as it's, without the space bar.

Layout Installation: Win XP:
Click Start, Settings, Control Panel, Regional and Language Options. Click the Language(s) tab. Click Details, then Add. Choose an Input language and a Keyboard Layout/IME. Use Apply to finish the process; the Windows installation CD may be needed. The keyboard or multilanguage sections in Start - Help may provide details. Screen images of the installation are here. For Win 2000 click this Carnegie Mellon site.

Windows Vista: Click Start, Control Panel, Clock, Language and Region, Change Keyboards. In the new window, click on the Change Keyboards button. This opens a new window called "Text Services and Input Languages". Click on the Add button. Scroll & check the English (United States) - United States-International keyboard. Click OK. Finally, in the upper part of the "Text Services and Input Languages" window, open the drop-down menu called Default Input Language and choose English (United States) - United States-International as your default for all input fields.

alt+shift? rotates through several language keyboards. Checking the Enable Indicator On Taskbar puts the default language on the taskbar. Or click the taskbar language icon to switch to another language. In Win XP, click the Preferences section for these steps.

hope this helps

I am the new user, Kindly support me with out charging users guides on how to use ms word easily with short cut keys


Open up Word, click on Help >> MS Office Word Help and a whole bunch of online solutions will appear on the right side. Have fun.

For example:

About shortcut keys
You can quickly accomplish tasks you perform frequently by using shortcut keys - one or more keys you press on the keyboard to complete a task.

For example, pressing CTRL+B changes the selected text to bold, just as clicking Bold on the Formatting toolbar (toolbar: A bar with buttons and options that you use to carry out commands. To display a toolbar, press ALT and then SHIFT+F10.) or selecting Bold in the Font dialog box (Format menu) changes the selected text to bold.

Printing a list of shortcut keys

If you frequently refer to the Help topics that list shortcut keys, you may find it helpful to keep a printed copy of those topics. In Help, locate the topic you want, and then click Print .

You can also run a macro (macro: An action or a set of actions that you can use to automate tasks. Macros are recorded in the Visual Basic for Applications programming language.) that creates a list of the current shortcut key assignments, and then print the list.

On the Tools menu, point to Macro, and then click Macros.
In the Macros in box, click Word commands.
In the Macro name box, click ListCommands.
Click Run.
In the List Commands dialog box, click Current menu and keyboard settings.
Click OK.
On the File menu, click Print.
Customizing shortcut keys

You can customize shortcut keys in Microsoft Word by assigning shortcut keys to commands that do not already have them or by removing shortcut keys you don't want. If you don't like the changes you make, you can return to the default shortcut key settings at any time.

Using shortcut keys with different keyboard layouts or Word as your e-mail editor

Shortcut keys mentioned in the Help topics, menus, and dialog boxes refer to the U.S. keyboard layout. Keys on other layouts may not correspond exactly to the keys on a U.S. keyboard. If the language of the keyboard layout you are using doesn't match the language you set for Microsoft Word or Word Help, you may have to make adjustments when using shortcut keys or change your keyboard layout.

If you are using Word as your e-mail editor, some of the shortcut keys listed may not be available or may produce different results.
