How can I change the keyboard type

Q: How can I change the keyboard type

I have bought a new computer with Windows 7 Premium Home 64-bit OS pre-installed. I made the mistake of specifying my keyboard type as US during the initial setup. I need to change it to Japanese type. I followed the steps mentioned in the help documentation to select the desired keyboard type after clicking the Change Keyboard button on the Keyboard Settings window. But it did not work. I am unable to enter Japanese text through my keyboard. Kindly help!

Preferred Solution: How can I change the keyboard type

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: How can I change the keyboard type

Just bought an AIO Qosmio px30t-a-14r / windows 8.1

At power-up, during first setup, I had to choose language and keyboard setting.

I choose language: englisch-uk.
For the keyboard I had the choice of 3 types:
- belgian comma
- belgian dot (or point?)
- belgian french
I did choose belgian comma.

However, further down the setup process I could test key response of the keyboard with this setup.
This was the wrong setting.

How do I change it to 'belgian dot' or 'belgian french'.
Should be one of these 2 but I do not know how to change it.

Has anybode a suggestion?

thanks

A:Qosmio PX30T-A-14r: How to change keyboard language type

This is not very tricky:
Press the Windows key + C to open your Charms.. Then select the Settings charm, and then click Change PC settings. Click Time and language, then select Region and language. On the right, select your language and the click Options. Click Add a keyboard and then select the keyboard you want from the list.
This will add your selection to the Keyboards list.
You can remove a keyboard by clicking on it then click Remove.
Furthermore you can also add multiple keyboard layouts and switch between them when needed.

You can switch between your keyboard layouts clicking on the current language and keyboard in the lower right, and then select a keyboard layout. Or you can use the 2nd method: On your desktop you will see your current language in the lower right corner beside the clock. Click on your current language and choose a keyboard layout.

Hi guys, Something really strange started happening two days ago. Out of the blue the following keys stopped working: GHBackspaceWindows Key@' The laptop is a couple of years old and a bit dusty, so I took it to the local shop to get the keyboard replaced and cleaned. Seemed to be working fine when I left the shop. Then, a little while ago the space key and P stopped. Five minutes later they started working again but ctrl stopped and N is temperamental. I haven't spilt anything on it or knocked it. Any ideas what's going on?

My keyboard does not let me input a key more than once. for example, if i am typing the word letter. it does not let me type in the 2nd t. the only way i could add the 2 letter is if i use an entirely diferent buton. but this is not only specific to leters. even the backspace key and space bar, i canot type seamlesly. you can se in this and the last sentance that every word that neds two of the same keys, it doesn't work. I have to use the curser afterwards to ad in the leter i ned. even the space bar and backspace key does not work twice in a row.

is this a hardware isue or is it somekind of software problem?

it's so anoying. i can't even type www. without takeing like 20 seconds. help please!

thanks!
 

A:keyboard does not let me type same key twice

Borrow another keyboard and try. That is the simplest way of narrowing it down.

Check your setting under Accessibility Options (or whatever XP calls it - I use Vista).

There are settings there to ignore repeated keystrokes.

I was helping a neighbour reinstall windows xp pro on his older computer which had become unusable because of viruses. While trying to type in the activation code, I found that the z key would not produce any response, so I replaced it with another keyboard and the same things happened, in fact I tried 4 keyboards in all (3 were ps2 and 1 was USB) and they all had the same problem when trying to type the letter z. Any ideas?
 

A:Keyboard will not type z

Hey I really have no hear such problem before. It a really very serious problem. I think the activation code which you are going to enter is incorrect. Not only 'z' key is working what about another keys. I think it will be your installing or CD from which you are installing problem. You have to try it from another CD.

If so what model keyboard should I purchase and would the laptop follow the HP pavilion 15 series disassembly steps?

Hi, It is much better and cheaper to buy this option now because backlit keyboard alone won't work, you need a motherboard which have ports for you to connect those lights. Buy this option now may cost you say $50, replace it later may cost you ten times or more and in many cases not-workable. Regards.

[Windows 8.1 x64]

Hi

How do I change just the *name* of a file type - i.e. without changing the default program?

For example in Windows Explorer my Excel files are called "Microsoft Excel Worksheet". And my Word files are called "Microsoft Word Document".
However is I make the "Type" column in Windows Explorer narrow, then for both types of file all I can see is "Microsoft..."
[This is *profoundly* unhelpful - what arrogant vanity by Microsoft! Do they ever actually run usability trials on this stuff?]

So although I still want .XLSX files to open with Excel I want to change the name / description that appears in the Type column to just "Excel Worksheet" (or possibly "Excel Worksheet (Microsoft)" or similar)

I have saved 200 family photos on a CD-RW, but I am unable to e-mail them using either Outlook Express or IrfanView. Apparently the reason is because they are all designated as Type: Microsoft Picture It! Document. I find that I am only able to send them using Picture It!, but I prefer using Outlook Express when sending pictures.

I presume there's an easy way to change these files to another type which would allow me to send them using Outlook Express and IrfanView. I would greatly appreciate help with this matter.

Maybe just zip them up and then attach it to your email. But if they are the Microsoft Picture It! .MIX format the person you email it to will need Microsoft Picture It! to open them.

I am not sure I'm posting this in the right place. Part of my uncertainty comes from the failure of my searches to produce anything resembling an answer to my question. This is not a question about Windows 7 but rather a question about how this web site operates.

My user profile contains a setting that says I should get daily notifications for threads to which I have subscribed. For some reason, I have this one thread for which I have instant notification set. The FAQ says I should look at my list of subscriptions and I will be able to change the subscription type from that screen. But I don't see any place for changing an instant notification to a daily notification for a single thread.

I bought Vista x64 because of the free upgrade to Win7. After I updated I found that my two admin accounts were no longer admin, but standard. To make a too of a long story shorter, I was able to create a new admin account using net user adminitrator, but when I tried to make the other two accounts admins, the change button was grayed out.

After much Googling and a lot of help, the problem still existed. The assumption was to repair the system but but since it was an update dvd and not a full version DVD the only option was to update again and, of course, that didn't work either.

My question, finally, is Is there a registry entry that I can change/add that will allow me to fix this issue?

The keyboard on my Dell 1501, will not the letters I,O,P when I press them. My laptop is older, just three years, and has had moderate use, mainly my husband looking for information. It has the Vista program, I know, but it has worked basically fine for the little use it gets. Nothing has been spilled on it, could they be worn out/

Is there anyway to take the keyboard cover off without damaging it and look to see if there is some type of debris blocking the connection?

Hi Guys,

I have a wireless keyboard with touchpad. The touchpad works fine but the keys don't type.

I have tested the keyboard on another computer and it works fine, I also tested another keyboard on this PC and it also didn't work.

I have updated drivers but the problem still persists.

Yesterday, I removed some malware (Iminent?) and I'm guessing this is the only thing which could have caused this problem.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated

Thanks,
Si

Hey all, I was hoping someone on this board would be able to help me out.

I'm looking for a PC keyboard(PS/2 or USB) that would be like a laptop keyboard, where the keys are very easily pressed and sensitive. If anyone here has one of those or knows of a company that manufactures that type of keyboard please toss me a link or in the right direction.

Thanks all.

Solution

I found the solution. After much deliberation it was simply in the Accessibility Options. For some reason the Filter Keys check box got checked. I have no idea how or why this happened but for anyone that cares, this is the fix.

The newer wireless ones are lasting more than a year.
This is a product you should see and test.
The silent one can be a pain, if they don't fit your comfort zone

Hi all
I finally figured out how to get spanish accents on my keyboard AltGR + letter. I can now write é á í etc fine!
 
However, I can't seem to write the ñ character, even when using the Alt + 165  as suggested by all the google results.
I've even tried the UK extended keyboard.
 
Also, more pressingly perhaps, is that I can't write the # symbol. I use Alt + 3 (where the # is on the key above the number 3) but it gives me the british pound sign: £
 
How can I write these two characters without having do download some program or copying and pasting them from the internet! Thank you in advance
 
 

A:US keyboard installed but can't type # or

I don't have an answer for most of your topic. But you say this is a US keyboard and "Also, more pressingly perhaps, is that I can't write the # symbol. I use Alt + 3 (where the # is on the key above the number 3)".Would not the # symbol on a US keyboard be Shift + number three key? Not Alt + number three key?

This is a strange problem - my keyboard will not type on certain programs and as far as I can deduce it is only installed programs such as Empire Earth The Sims and Pharaoh I am trying to install Sims and it will not let me put in the letters of the serial numbers only the numbers show Keyboard - will type letters not only I Keyboard will not type - only letters can only conclude that it isn t a problem with the programs because they are from different Keyboard will not type - only letters brands and some are installed some are in the process of being installed Key points -Only the letters do not function or show up numbers are fine Bksp also works -IE notepad Word Publisher etc all work It seems to be the programs that aren t Windows-based created that don t work Things I ve tried -Uninstalling driver for the keyboard Intellitype Pro and rebooting Keyboard worked fine but no solution -New keyboard just plugged it in to my USB port and it s working fine This one is Microsoft Natural USB Keyboard Except for it not typing letters on programs -Tried different USB ports Didn t solve anything I have to say I m at a complete loss as to what the problem is other than some bizarre configuration that Windows has spat at me nbsp

Hello sometimes when I type keys on the keyboard applications seem to appear. This happens quite a lot, I keep clicking control button and it eventually gets back to normal. Does anyone know what I can do to stop this happening.

A:keyboard- when I type sometimes applications appear.

This happens when, while you are typing a doc or like in a post like in here?

Try to see which keys bring up which Programs, maybe you have a hot-key set up for those. Do you have any special Software installed for Keyboard and Mouse?

Hello everyone!

A week ago I decided create a homegroup. I wanted to change network type to Home on one PC with Windows 8.1.

The issue is, when I open Network and Sharing Center and click to Work Network, it doesn't click and lettering is black there.

I tried to change network type to Public first and from this point change it to Home, by disabling Network Discovery and Common Access for files, so Network Type became Public. However, I still cannot change it's type also from Public, as lettering is black.
So I turned Network Discovery and Common Access for files back and network type automatically changed back to Work.

The question is can I switch network type to Home for that PC?

My audio files have all been loaded to itunes on my PC and I was able to update the audiobooks to the audiobook media type without a problem. All music & audiobooks are stored on an external drive. When I created the itunes library on my Macbook pro, I can change the media type in itunes for music files, but cant change the media type for the audiobooks. I do NOT have iTunes Match or Genius on.

When I look in the Finder window, the audiobook files show as CUSTOM ACCESS, but I can't find anywhere to see what this access is.

All music and audiobook files are on a Netgear readynas nv+2 network drive.

How do i get these files updated for itunes to see them as audiobooks?

I was playing around on my computer with regedit.exe, I found file type .exe and clicked it. There were two files (looks like a piece of paper torn in half with red letters "ab" on it), I right clicked the first, went to modify, and changed the value from "exefile" to "C:\Users\Stewy\Pictures\green.ico" just to see what would happen. Then, I logged off and back on, and all my .exe files looked like the default file icon (just a piece of paper), and when I clicked them, nothing happened. I only got on the internet through a shortcut to a website I had previously made. When I right-click the .exe files, and go to properties, then the details tab, it says "Type: C:\Users\Stewy\Pictures\green.ico", how can I change it back to" exefile" if I can't open regedit.exe?

Thank you,

On my new Windows 8 machine, every time I put an audio CD into the disk drive, the Power DVD program starts. THis is MOST ANNOYING! I want audio CDs to launch Windows Media Player so that I can rip them to the hard drive. If I go to Control Panel -> Default Programs -> Associate a File Type with a Program, there is NO LISTING in there for .cda files, which is what compact disc audio files are. Does anyone know how to resolve this problem?

I installed an evaluation copy 3rd party of an HTML iFilter. The eval period has expired and I can't justify the cost of getting a full license, so I uninstalled it.

How can I get back to having the standard HTML iFilter indexing HTML files, at the moment I've set it to plain text - but that's not working for me. I know the standard HTML iFilter is doing its job, because if I rename a .HTML file to .HTT then it gets indexed and shows up in Search as I would anticipate it would.

Thanks PJD

Even though Firefox is already registered with file types such as: .html, .htm, .ftp, etc, it won't let me uncheck them as well as for other programs.

I don't want to change the Firefox associations, though.

I've also tried

Default programs > Associate a file type or protocol with a program

To no avail either.

FileTypesMan didn't help much of either.

It appears third party software and the usual method, aka Default programs, can no longer change some file type associations so easily now.

Satellite M30X is pretty old notebook model so I think you should not have big problems to obtain new keyboard. I had similar problem on my old Satellite M70 and I bought new keyboard on eBay.

At this time keyboards were pretty similar and one keyboard could be used on few notebook models. eBay is good place to find keyboards and different hardware parts for old notebook models.
Unfortunately I cannot help you with this keyboard check so if you find specification that says it is compatible with M30X you can buy it.

Don't spend a lot of money for it. as I wrote before on eBay you can find keyboards for reasonable price.

When I type the letter wont appear unless I hold the key down for at least 3 seconds.I must have touched something that turned on this feature. What is it?

A:Keyboard won't type unless i hold the key down for a couple

Go into your Control Panel, Ease of Access, Ease of Access Center, Set up Filter Keys. Check and make sure that "Turn on Filter Keys" is unchecked.You can also uncheck the option under Keyboard shortcut to Turn on Filter Keys when Right SHIFT is pressed for 8 seconds.

Presently,i'm using a system known as "Virtual Keyboard Logger." Just tell me how safe is this security measurement. Can a 'Coronel Type' of keyboard logger steal my encripted emails?How?
I'm just computer literate.Not a 'techi.'

Hi all. I'm confused. How do you do ALT codes without the numeric keypad? I mean the Fn key is there, but then what? I have since found that you can insert them via the on screen touch keyboard, but surely you can still do this on the keyboard right? What I want to type is which is usually Fn + ALT + 130. I contacted HP support who had no idea what-so-ever. I've done a search of the site and couldn't find anything either. Anyone got any answers? Thanks, Pony

A:Want to type é but Keyboard has no Numeric Keypad

Hello Pony, I don't have an answer to make the keyboard create a numpad but I read about adding Scripts to turn certain keys into the numpad. I have not used those.I do use a work around that will hopefully help a little. Turn on the On Screen Keyboard.Type in the Search bar Run and select it.Type the letters OSK and hit Enter.When the keyboard opens, click on Options.  When the dialog box opens, tick the box for Turn on Numeric Keypad.Hit OK.  Select the Numlock key on the on screen keyboard to show the numpad.One the physical keyboard, hold the Alt key down and click on 0233 of the On Screen Numpad.( I just use the Alt key shortcuts rather than Fn+Alt. Its just easier)   Hope that helps.

Is there an easy way for me to type in French, including accents on a USA keyboard, other than memorizing the alt codes?

A:Type French easily on USA keyboard?

You could make yourself a character store (e.g. on a notepad) from the character map that you find in All Programs > Accessories > Ease of Access. Then you copy the characters from there and paste it into the text. That is not very convenient either, but gets the job done for the occasional email or so. The notpad shortcut you can pin to the taskbar for easy access.

But if you need it frequently, I would get a French keyboard and make the appropriate settings (which you can easily switch back and forth). E.g. I am right now typing from a German keyboard - in Florida.
