is the @ above the 2?
woah... thats random
the other week I had the hard drive wiped on one of my laptops, well after reinstalling windows and other stuff, I am left with no sound drivers, so no audio...that I can live with. But, what is annoying the life out of me, is that I now have an American keyboard!Everything is in the wrong place and just plane stupid, is this a post or a rant? I like to think both. Can I just repeat, American keyboard layout is just stupid...stupid.
Mine looks normal George! LOL I have never seen another kind before!
WOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!! Tons of keyboards I wondered how you all were able to put accent marks over letters ours wont do that!
I recently learned that though the Swiss use the German QWERTZ keyboard, their lay out is slightly different from that of the Germans. The Germans have no key for an E with two dots, and no dead key for those two dots either; the Swiss have - probably because they have also French and Italian as their national languages. Some Belgians that reside in Germany and use German computers switchd the reional settings on the control pannel to Swiss because of that.
It used to be possible to get accented characters up and stuff (on Microsoft) by pressing alt and then three numbers on the numeric keypad. I haven't done that for ages...╚^That was ALT 456 (randomly chosen to see if it still works). Still works then. Don't ask me what codes produce what characters though!
Can you not simply go to the Regional and Languge section in the Settings and change your keyboard
...I type them in Word, using "Insert/Symbol...", and copy and paste them where I need them.
