strange keyboard layout

I inadvertently bought an English/Greek keyboard. That is, most of the keys are in English, with Greek letters underneath, which don't actually work.

The one vital key, that I would like to alter shows
:
\
but prints
~
#
It's the vital backslash that I need for internet,
(Using a different keyboard for this, of course!)
Anyone help, please

I think your system is set to American (US) go to:- start / settings/ control panel/ Regional & Language / keyboard and check the settings

Its not just Language, I bought one also from Computer Fair. And Key are in different places no £ key or ~ and the @ key is about second from the left second row down. £4 wasted

I found this in a different forum it will not help with your problem but may come in handy in the future.

wizking - sorry it's set to English.

Buteman - viewed the site you recommended, but not quite there, either.

I'll keep looking

There is no key marked ~

Key labelled # prints as £

There are some free software progs that alter the keys eg KeyTweak and Keyboard Remapper. They alter registry settings so you need to be careful. I haven't used them so cannot give a recommendation.

Can you say where the key marked

is located top row second from right - next to "go back left arrow key)

That sounds a very odd position for that keytop.

Maybe the keytops have been swapped over - or maybe it's totally non-standard.

Have a look here and see if you can find the layout that you have perhaps?
