Wording of the letter should be formal

Start 'Dear sirs', or 'Dear Mr ???'
End 'Yours faithfully'

If you write 'Dear Mary' <first name>
you end 'Yours sincerely'

Write proper English in the middle, and spellcheck.

If you need any other help, I am British and educated to degree standard in written English. Reply by way of COMMENT below my post.

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

I could complete upto 'select English India'. But in the key board check up box the option 'Indian English Keyboard' is not there

An "Indian English Keyboard" may not be sufficiently different
from an American or British English one for it to show up as an
option. As I understand it, only the pronunciation of spoken Indian
English is different.

After instalIing Office 2007 in my new PC, the Outlook Express is showing to have only French Dictionary. Kindly advise how can I import English Dictionary in the Outlook or use Word's English Dictionary...

All you would need to do is download a spellcheck software and install it. By installing this software it will change all the default dictionary languages to english, at which point it will allow you to start using spellcheck in english.

1.Download this file
2.Once you have downloaded the software, double-click on the file and continue with the setup 3.Once that is complete, restart your computer.
4.Now test it out and you should have your spellcheck back up and running

I am flying to carolina from nh and when i get there how do i get gps to know where i am?

The satnav should automatically know where you are when it picks up the satellites. Before going ensure that you have the text language set to American English as if it's in British English you won't be able to enter a state in the address. To change the text language;
  1. On the 'Main Menu' press the 'Settings' icon.
  2. Select the 'Locale' icon.
  3. Change the 'Text Language' to 'American English'.
  4. The unit will now allow 'States' to be entered.

Reset did not work. Still cannot enter state. When I hit spell state the gps responds no matches found. When I hit back - the alphabet appears but as soon as i hit a letter the GPS responds no matches...

The problem may be because the text language is British English. To be able to enter a state it must be in American English. To change to American English follow the instructions below;
  1. On the 'Main Menu' press the 'Settings' icon.
  2. Select the 'Locale' icon.
  3. Change the 'Text Language' to 'American English'.
  4. The unit will now allow 'States' to be entered.
