Change from lower case upper case

If there are more than 2 symbols on a key and I use the "caps" key the text will show the one on the upper right instead of the one directly above as is usual. This happens from time to time and I generally close my computer and start again but it keeps happening and having to close everything in a project is frustrating. Is there a way to change it back ( and know what I might have done to make it happen) without closing and rebooting?? I thiunk it the the French setting but have checked the keyboard settings and they are Canadian /US

SOURCE: Screen keeps blanking out on my Dell Inspiron 1501 :(

Could be faulty inverter board or faulty LCD backlight.

To determine which one is faulty, you have to replace inverter board or LCD screen, but i think that you don't have another inverter board or screen to test, so i'm recommending you to buy new screen with inverter attached to it.

Pick any screen from here

And here is how to replace it.

SOURCE: 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.

Hello, When typing on my Mo Droid if I want my caps to stay on how do I get that to work.....I tried holding it down but maybe I am not doing it properly?


If you are typing using the touchscreen, the upper-case arrow, touched once, will upper-case the next letter you type and then back to lower case. It you touch the upper-case arrow twice in a row, you should see a green light come on directly over it. That keeps the caps lock on.
If you are using the slide-out keyboard, touch the upper case key once and you should see a triangle underneath the cursor on the screen. That will upper case the next letter you type. To get it to stay in upper case, hit the upper case button again and the triangle should change to a > symbol, point up, underneath the cursor. That should keep it in upper case mode. Don't hold the upper case button down, as that won't do anything. A third press returns it to normal (lower case).

HOW DO I TURN OFF PREDICTIVE TEXT


First, hit the 'Message' button in the upper-left -hand corner. Select 'New Message'. Select 'New Short Msg'. An empty screen for inserting text will now be displayed. At this point press the top middle button (the one with the line on it like this -). Now the 'Message Menu' should be displayed. Scroll down to 'Entry Setup' & select it. Press the 'Change' button in the upper-right-hand corner when 'Primary Setup' is highlighted. Scroll down to 'TAP English' and select it. Now you are done. ('I TAP English is the setting for predivtive'. 'TAP English is the setting for manual').

Turn off the predictive text for E250


it is the same key as to change case. If you press it repeatedly, it'll cycle through various options in the top right of the screen:
initial caps with predictive,
all caps predictive,
lower case predictive,
numbers,
initial caps without predictive,
all caps without predictive,
lower case without predictive.

When T9 is not displayed, predictive text is off.

Just to spice things up, Samsung's idiotic software designers made it so that depending on the situation you're inputting text, the order that things cycle through is different, so you can't just press it a certain number of times to turn it off, you have to pay attention to the icon in the top right.
