Make sure that your keyboard is set on 'US International' in localisation settings.

Got an HP Laptop. Need to change language of keyboard to English as when I press a symbol, it brings up an incorrect one.


In the bottom right hand corner of your screen (on the taskbar), you'll see either a symbol of a keyboard (Windows Vista or Windows 7), or two letters together (Windows XP). This symbol represents the language you're currently using for your keyboard. Click on that symbol with your mouse, and select which language you'd like to use (In this case english) to resolve this problem

I just purchased my HP 4500 printer and began to install it. I see an error (!) symbol and I believe German writing. I need to remove that symbol and change the language to English.


Selecting the display language
To change the display language on the printer control panel, do the
following:
1 Press and hold [SELECT] on the printer control panel while pressing
the standby button (power switch). Continue holding [SELECT] until
the control panel displays
SELECT LANGUAGE (in English), and then release the [SELECT] key.
2 When the control panel displays LANGUAGE=ENGLISH *, press
[VALUE] repeatedly until your language choice appears.
3 Press [SELECT] to save your language choice. An asterisk appears
next to the selected language. Then press [GO].
4 After the printer warms up, the control panel displays READY in the
selected language.
Note
If the control panel does not display the message in the language you
selected, press the printer standby button and repeat the instructions for
changing the display language.

This is because it is set to US english keyboard layout rather than UK English layout.

Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Keyboard

and change the language settings

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.

Hi guy, I brought a hp compaq 6720s


You need to check your keyboard setting layout , look for it in your control panel and change the layout to either uk or us, which ever applies to you.

The upper case figs ie @ and " have swopped positions how do i get them back to their right postions


The difference in the @ and " symbols occurs between US and UK keyboards, where UK keyboards have the " symbol on the "2" key and US keyboards have the @ symbol on the "2" key.

Regardless of what physical drawing you have on the keyboard, you can change the actions of the keys by setting up the appropriate US or UK keyboard layout in Windows.

First, determine whether you'd prefer a US or a UK layout. In the US layout, pressing SHIFT+2 will write @. In the UK layout, pressing it will write ".

Now, from the Start menu, select Settings and go to Control Panel. Once there, search for "Regional and Language Options". Under the "Languages" tab there is a button labeled "Details". Press it, and a new window opens with the keyboard layouts. Use the "Add" button to select the keyboard layout you want (English, US or UK, Qwerty - not Dvorak), then Remove your old keyboard layout. Press OK and exit all the screens, you're done.

Hope this helps.
