How do I switch from the green keys to my regular keys?

There are green symbols on my Acer laptop keyboard and sometimes it switches from using the regular symbols on the keys to those green keys. I do not know how that happens and how to change it back. Please help!!

Press the Symbol key on the keyboard. It works just like the Num LK key.

Acer Aspire 5050 - The wireless connection is turned off but there is no button to switch it on, can you tell me how to do it please? Thanks


Well There must be a switch on it. If You are pretty sure about this that its not there.
Than you can do one thing Look on the keyboard and observe the keys carefully you will find an icon on the keyboard look like an antena symbol look below:964e9d5.jpg
Or Somewhat change on this icon. The default key on most keyboards is F2 or sometimes you need to hold down the Fn Key and they press the F2 Key

Hey, I've just been having this problem. Try pressing CTRL + SHIFT + FN all at the same time. I found out that I had to press them once to turn on the green keys, and then press them twice more to turn it off. I hope that works for you.

Bilingual keyboard


There is a small green Fn button near the start button you will have to use this with shift to use the green keys if you are in multi lingual mode, if you only use the laptop for french you can also change the regional settings for the keyboard to Just French and then they will work just by using shift.

Hope this helps FixYa,
