I have a Logitech cordless ex110 keyboard that I would like to find an online manual for....I have no idea what the 'F' keys do and every once in a while I hit something (?) that converts my /,...

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: .

I hope this helps.

I can't use my @ symbol on my Lap top how can I fix this problem I tried shift and 2 at the same time and it's giving me this symbol " instead

Your keyboard's input language is likely set for English - Canadian French and you may notice also a problem with keying the question mark ? and getting the é character instead. If you look carefully, you'll see on the 2 key, the @ has the " next to it and the ? key has é next to it. The language bar is the easiest way to get to the window to change the keyboard's input language. However, if you don't have the language bar showing, then you will have to do the following....
For Windows XP
1. at the bottom left corner of the desktop, click on start
2. on the start window, click on Control Panel
3. on the Control Panel window, double click on Regional and Language Options
4. on the Regional and Language Options window, click on the Languages tab
5. on the Text services and input languages part of the Languages tab, click Details
6. to bring up the Settings tab and in the Default input language part, click on v for language list
7. on the drop down language list, high-light and click on English (United States) - US
8. on the bottom of the Settings tab in the Preferences part, click on Language Bar
9. on Language Bar Settings pop-up window, click to set the appropriate check boxes
10. click on OK on each of the three windows to apply settings and exit.
For Windows 7
1. at the bottom left corner of the desktop, click on the round start button with the windows logo
2. on the start window, click on Control Panel
3. on the Adjust your computer's settings window, click on Region and Language
4. on the Region and Language window, click the Keyboards and Languages tab
5. on the Keyboards and Languages tab, click Change Keyboards button

Hello ... I was typing away and everything was fine, but then all of a sudden when I tried to get the question mark it is a French character instead. How do I get the key back to being a question mark?

Your keyboard's region layout for your computer may have changed somehow. Here's how to change it:

1. Click on Start Menu
2. Type in the bar that says "Search programs and files": Region and Language
3. Click on Keyboards and Languages tab, then click on Change Keyboards
4. In the Default input language tab, select your layout (probably English United States - US)

If it is not listed, click on Add and scroll down to your desired language and layout.

Best of luck!!

How to make french accents marks on a laptop that doesn't have a number pad

You need to tell windows it has a french keyboard:

In the control panel, go to regional and language options.
Go to the keyboards and languages tab, click change keyboards. On the window that pops up, click on the general tab. You probably have just the us keyboard installed. Click add, then choose either english-canada or french-france, then click to add the french keyboard. Click preview to see where the accent keys will be (so you can find them). Now, select the french keyboard and click 'move up' so the french keyboard is above the us english one.


Hope this helps. Post a comment if you get stuck.

When typing question marks & puctuation...French comes up

In Control Panel, double click "Regional and Language Options". Click the Languages Tab and then the Details button. Make sure that English is selected as the Default Input Language. If French is listed as an available keyboard layout and you don't need it there, you can remove it to make sure it doesn't switch itself again.
I hope this helps. Good Luck.

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!

You can change the keyboard to suit the one that is fitted - I can give you detailed instructions but first kindly advise me what keyboard you have [what symbol is above the 3 on it's key]. What is the operating system?

Please rate this advice as fixya and I will give you full instructions how to set keyboard type and do away with the unnecessary utility on the taskbar.
