Keyboard layout

  bridge+ 10:57 03 Jul 2006

My XP's keyboard layout is American ; I have tried to change to an UK layout but without success. The key board Icon in Control Panel is of very little help, I would have thought that the country layout was easy to change - it was with Win 98 ! Any suggestions most gratefully received - many thanks.

You need to go to Regional Settings and I think reboot afterwards - there are several tabs to complete.

It's Regional and Language Settings you require, as Taff™ points out.

The keyboard merely responds to the configuration made in Regional and Language settings and its Control Panel section is to alter repeat rates etc.

Remember to click apply and then ok at the screen otherwise it will default to what it was before.
