Use Right ALT+shift. Or if this doesn't work, right click on the Start bar- Toolbars- Language bar. And change it manually

How do I change from French keyboard?


Start / Settings / Control Panel / Regional and language options, check you have the language you want in there, then remove the additional (French) language.

This assumes you're running Windows XP. Vista or Windows 7 will be similar.

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!
