keyboard layout?

  rabbitrabbit 14:20 05 Mar 2005

i just re-installed XP. all the things i had changed i need to change again, but have forgotten how to!! :-

on my keyboard the keys " and @ are the wrong way around. bit of a pain when typing in e-mail addresses. perhaps this is an american configuration?

oh, and i keep getting "windows messenger" pop-ups. i recall turning this off back in the past. but again, i have forgotten.

Control Panel, Regional and Language settinds. Set everything to English (UK).

Setting it just to english doesn't help as i have tried it before.

What you have to do is go Control pannel,Date,time,language and regional options,then click 'regional and language' then do as Vog says changing everything to English now click 'languages' then click details,then 'add..' choose all the english options if any.and then click the English keyboard you've just added then click ok

That should do it!
