Keyboard problem


Hi,
A recent Microsoft update is probably responsible for this. It will have changed your keyboard settings from English UK to English US.

Here is how to set it right >>>>>>

Click on the start menu and click control panel. From the list in control panel click on Regional and Language Options.
Click on the Languages tab and then click on the Details button.
In that list you will both language settings (US and UK).
Click on English US and click on remove. (If English UK is not in the list click on "Add" and select English UK as the default keyboard settings).
The computer will tell you that the language cannot be removed until you log off or something similar of that nature.
Click Yes and then Apply and Apply and OK in the other window.

Then click on the start menu and log off your account.
Re-log on and the keyboard settings should be changed to UK.

If you require anymore help please feel free to post back.


Regards.

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,

Chris
