Keyboard format!

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I've went and done it again!

    Somehow or other, in the course of doing some work earlier, I managed to change the keyboard to another format/layout.

    This is driving me absolutely mental as function keys now do totally different things to what they usually do, and I've lost a few letters (I've got a Danish keyboard).

    Can anyone tell me how to get it back to normal so I can find hyphens, at symbols and the like again.

    Thanks in advance.

  2. I'm assuming you're using XP.

    open Control Panel
    click on "Regional and Language Options"
    click on the "Languages" tab
    click on the "Details" button
    change as required
     
  3. I am indeed using XP, but isn't there a keyboard shortcut?
     
  4. Have you a small icon near the clock marked "En"?

    If so, you may have clicked it and toggled the language. Easy to do without noticing.
     
  5. T_T, open "Keyboard" in the Control Panel and choose an alternative. You can also choose which key combination to toggle in order to effect the change (I use Control-Shift to toggle between Brit-Eng and German on my keyboard).

  6. Thanks for the help lads.

    It seems that pressing the left 'alt' key and shift causes the changeover on my computer.

    I must have hit the shift key when typing '@' (ctrl+alt+2).
