I lost my question mark ... How do I get this back


Hi, if you're getting an e with an accent on it when you try to type a question mark, you may have the French keyboard layout selected. To change it back to the English layout, follow these steps:
In Windows Vista/7: 1) Click the Start button and click Control Panel
2) Underneath Clock, Language and Region, click Change keyboards or other input methods
3) Click the Change Keyboards button
4) Under Default input language, make sure English is selected. In the Installed Services box, delete any languages you do not need by selecting them and clicking the Remove button. Make sure you don't delete US!

Instead of getting the @ symbol when I press shift +2 i get "


you need to hold down ctrl and function on the left side of your keyboard, and then hit the shift key on the right side of your keyboard. Then let go of right shift while still holding down the control and function keys, and then hit right shift again.

these blue keys are french keys. if you change your keyboard settings to english US or UK, it will get rid of the blue functions, but for some reason, they tend to turn themslves back on again after time. Most likely due to automatic updates followed by an auto restart. Also, I find that the issue only arises if I am in my hotmail account.....no issue in Word docs.

The keys are not synchronised properly. The @ key and the " are typing each others symbol. ie I have to press shift 2 to get the @ symbol and vice versa.

Keyboard `problem `strange `dash `appearing


Many programs extend the usefulness of the function keys by using key combinations. The most common combinations are Shift + a function key, Alt + a function key, and Crtl + a function key. These combinations can be very useful. For instance, in Microsoft Word, when any text is highlighted, pressing the Shift key plus the F3 key will change the case of the text from all caps, initial caps, to all lowercase. Shift + F7 will choose the Thesaurus command. These shortcuts allow you to access such functions with one keystroke rather than three or four mouse clicks.

Keyboard


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.

Keypad not functioning properly...


Check to see if your shift, control, alt, or other modifier keys are stuck on your keyboard. These can cause your keyboard to act erratically. Also, if this is a wireless keyboard, you may need to change the batteries, as this can also cause a keyboard to act erratically.

FN key


(FuNction key) A keyboard key that works like a shift key to activate the second function on a dual-purpose key, typically found on laptops to reduce keyboard size. It is different than the function keys F1, F2, etc. It is also a real nuisance when the PageUp and PageDn keys are placed on the Up and Down Arrow keys and have to be activated by pressing the Fn key.

Hope this helps you,
George
