This may vary depending on your version of Windows but it should be basically the same: go into control panel, bring up "region and language" then the third tab, "keyboards and languages". The the first button on that screen, "change keyboards". This screen has a drop-down menu with a list of languages such as English - United States (or presumably whichever one you're looking for).

Note I set my control panel view to "small icons". In category view it's under clock/language/region. Hope I was able to help!

Hi lal1220,

I had the exact same problem with my keyboard (KU-0883). What you want to do is first go into your "Control Panel". From there under "Hardware and Sound", go to "View Devices and Printers". Right Click on your USB Keyboard and go to "Region and Language". Under the "Keyboard and Languages" tab click on "Change Keyboard". From the "General" Tab click on "Add". Scroll down to "English (Canada)" and expand it by hitting +. Uncheck "Canadian French" and "Canadian Multilingual Standard". Then press "OK". After which you press "Apply" and "OK". Give your computer a quick reboot and your good to go.

I am trying to find a way to make accents in the French laguage and cannot find a way to do this on my acer aspire 5920. Can you help


Difficult on a laptop. This is because the numeric keys are part of the main keyboard. There is a USB numeric pad available but no guarantees .

Normally on conventional keyboard ñ would be a combination of ALT0241 but on the laptop this will noyt work. Some special characters can be achieved by ALT FN JII ( hitting the i up to 8 times a separate character is made. also jiim etc try a few for yourself ( mainly r side of keyboard characters.

Now to solve your problem the only way I can see is to download the extended keyboard program hat is free select the characters copy and paste

How to change the language setting to English?


Computers running Windows®, you have the option of typing alternative character sets. This can be selected by clicking on START>SETTINGS> CONTROL PANEL. Then click on the picture of the world globe. This enables users to toggle between Arabic or Hebrew and English. This requires you to learn the keyboard layout for these languages

First, select the desired language.(the default in the U.S. is U.S. English If your computer was sold in a French spealing country, the keyboard might be different. If this is the case, the only solution could be a new keyboard

Blue characters on the keyboard when I type


It is a combination of key known as "Function" (Fn, for short). You have to press it and hold while pressing other keys showing the blue letters on it. The most common use is to make a virtual Numerical Keypad on laptops, so you can perform calculations. To be back to normal mode, you need to press FN+F8 (or the key with the Calculator icon).

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!

that means that the keyboard has been set to a different language. On my screen at the bottom right hand is a little keyboard icon and when i click on it it lets me scroll through US English, Canadian French and Canadian Multilingual Standard. If the keyboard is set to the Canadian French option (or whatever other option that is available on your keyboard in red characters) the number two button changes function.
