Hi

I used to find it so easy to switch keyboards prior to XP! (Autoexec.bat -
Keyb uk!)

A friend has a laptop and the keyboard seems to be set to American, ie @ is
typing as ".

I have found no reference to changing keyboards in XP - Any ideas anyone?

All the best

Richard

Don't mean to be unkind, but your question is frequently asked, and has
nothing whatsoever to do with printing and/or faxing.
http://groups.google.com and search for "keyboard language". You can also
use the Help and Support Centre to do the same.

Hi

Have you tried to go to "regional settings" in the control panel, then
changing all details to "English UK" - this should do it
