My keyboard will not change from French Canadian to US.

Q: My keyboard will not change from French Canadian to US.

I can not change my keyboard from French Canadian to US. I tried the usual things; pressing CTRL+ALT and using the keyboard icon on the taskbar, and even though it says it is on the US keyboard, it is still French Canadian. Then I removed my other keyboard options from the control panel so it says I only have the US keyboard available, but it is still French Canadian. I have no idea where the apostrophe is on this keyboard, and it is driving me crazy.

Preferred Solution: My keyboard will not change from French Canadian to US.

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/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: My keyboard will not change from French Canadian to US.

Uh, how about moving to Canada, and learning to speak French?

Try to run a System Restore to a time prior to when the problem started happening.

Issue since moving from IE9 to IE11 in the office

I've changed the Language Preference on IE11 to add both of them, English by default
Microsoft Office is already set to use both language

Although using Internet Explorer, we are having an issue where it only seem to spell check one language, giving errors when typing words in the other language.

Read on the internet some people that added both language in the keyboard layout, but that's not an interesting solution because first the French keyboard layout does all the English keys and second people tend to accidentaly switch language while typing
using shortcut or whatever

Any help regarding this issue would be appreciated

Help please! I just installed Service Pack 2 and lost the configuration on my French Canadian keyboard. I opened the Control Panel, then Regional properties, gave French Canadian as the input language by default with the addition of British English as a second possibility. When I wanted to change the keyboard setting to look like my FC keyboard I was given the choice of French Canadian Legacy or French Canadian Multilingual keyboards. The keyboard I really want allows for an accented capital E automatically. I am not quite sure which it is nor do I know of any site that shows it specifically. On the keyboard layout I am looking for the @ symbol is attained by 2 plus altcar. There are also more dead keys than on the standard French keyboard which is what I get.
I cannot seem to be able to reconfigure to have the FC keyboard.

My sytem is Windows XP.

Hello everyone, I recently formated my X1 Carbon (2015) and since then I have a problem with the keyboard. I have a french canadian keyboard and it used to work just fine, but now some keys on it don't produce the desired characters. The language chosen for the keyboard is French (Canada), it's not the the multilingual canada keyboard. Therefore I don't know where else the problem can come from ? Did this happen to any of you ? I tried to search on the forum but couldn't find anything like that. I guess this kind of problem can happen with an english keyboard.For example, on my keyboard, the "slash" is above the "3", and it used to write a slash when I pressed Maj+3, but now instead I get "#" when I do that. I tried to delete every other keyboard than CA FR installed but the problem stays the same. I hope someone can help me with this, it's been a month now and it can be really annoying sometimes. I often write in german too and I still havent found a way to write the "umlaut" (two dots above a letter) with this weirdly configurated keyboard. Thank you very much

I've been trying to change my Irish ip address to a Canadian one so I can watch some hockey which is geographically restricted. What I've done is go into Tools, Options, Connections, Settings and manually entered a proxy server. I tried a few servers and they didn't work. Then after I entered one I could browse and thought I had solved the problem but my IP address remained the same. So I went to Start, Run, cmd and entered ipconfig/release and then tried but then it said "the proxy server is refusing connections". Can anyone help? Does it make a difference that I'm in an apartment complex that might have an admin address or would trying a different server work?

A:Can't change IP address to Canadian one

I have here a Microsoft Internet Keyboard (French version) that supports french layout. I set the keyboard to:

French(Canada) - French
--Canadian French
--Canadian Multilingual Standard

Regardless of the setup I use, not all the keys on the keyboard output properly. If I use the ^ with vowels the put the accent above, however when doing the characters on the ~ and 1-9 keys I don't get the appropriate characters.

I've tried installing the MS Intellitype Pro software to no avail. It worked before the computer was formatted and XP put back on it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

TY Colzie

P.s I searched the forums and could not find a thread with a similar theme hence this thread admin.

A:keyboard in French

Hi colzie

Rather than going straight to the keyboard applet in Control Panel, try just the "Regional and Language Options" applet:

Start/Control Panel/Regional and Language Options/Languages tab/Details/Settings ... "Add" -- and choose the French options you prefer for "Input Language" (there are six different French versions to choose from), and choose French also for your "Keyboard layout/IME".

See if that does it
Best of luck

My father received a new computer while travelling for his job in Russia. And as lovely as that gift is, the whole thing works in Russian. Which means even the alphabet is different and we can't read a thing on it. After trying to understand how it works, I found how to change the language but it doesn't entirely change it. The only thing that changes is the language of the start-up menu. The rest is still in Russian and the alphabet is still in Russian.
And I really am not used to the new Windows 8 appearance so I can't even try to guess because everything is different from my computer.
So far, I've found out two things I should probably mention. First is that I can't just download the language pack because it's apparently already on the computer so the download button isn't available. Second, since it's in Russian, I can't update to the new Windows 8.1 version and all the explanations for this problem on the Microsoft website are only available for that version.
If anyone can help, please do ! I'd really appreciate it.
I hope my explanation was clear enough and if not, do feel free to ask me any question

A:Change language from Russian to French

The very first thing you or your father needs to do, is do a Military wipe on the hard drive, and install a known good issue of Windows on the machine.  Now of course it could still have a hardware based keylogger built into the machine, due to it did come from Russia, and unless your father has a reputable shop check the machine out, to make sure, I personally would not touch it for a buck, if it came from Russia.
Really you need to just tell your father to not use that machine, sell it and get one from a dealer or computer manufacturer that you can trust.

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.

Hi everyone, I just received my Y40 and found out that it came with a French keyboard. Could anyone verify that this is an anomaly or does everyone get French keyboards. It makes no sense at all to automatically sell french keyboards to Canada when most people do not speak french. I understand they need to offer the optionality, but they shouldn't automatically assume that people want french keyboards.  This is very frustrating as the Lenovo website shows the US version of the keyboard. I'm talking to support and trying to figure out what can be done. If anyone has any success stories that they can share on rectifying the situation, please do share to help all of us fellow Canadians out. Thank you for all of your help!

Once I restart Word, it goes back to English. There must be a sequence of keys I'm hitting that switches it to French. Or...?

Hello everyone,

Recently I bought a new computer to my wife, and it has French Windows 7 x64 bit preinstalled on it. As she speaks French/Russian I added a Russian layout in Windows (please note that originally Windows 7 came as French edition).

Now, when she visits Le Monde.fr : Actualit?s ? la Une web site the special characters are not properly shown in IE8. For example, in words, the letter ? becomes й etc.

If she runs Google Chrome browser, everything is working just fine. However, she dislikes Chrome, so I am forced to solve the problem with IE8.

If I choose in IE8 a Western Europe locale I can see proper characters in words, but! I don't want to choose locale each time there is a bug with IE8!

How can I solve the issue?

Please help. Merci.

I tried writing a shell script to iterate over the exes, open them and immediately kill the 3 resulting virus processes but eventually the virus installs itself on the system after which point the exes don't get decrypted when opened.   Since initially, the VM was free from the virus, it seems that whatever key information is required to decrypt the exe, it is embedded in the exe itself.  So hopefully, it should be possible to decrypt the files without having to pay the ransom to get the key but so far I haven...

A customer of mine recently got infected with a ransomware virus. I personally didn't get a chance to capture the pop-up image/info when the computer boots (a colleague of mine removed it too quickly) but I'll try to provide some details...

It has many references to 'committing software piracy' and 'illegal downloads of software'. The ransom is for the bitcoin equivalent of 250 CAD (Canadian Dollars) and can be submitted through a link provided, the Royal Bank of Canada or to 'your local courthouse'. It also states that all the files have been locked/encrypted on the PC. They also say if we pay the ransom the files will be unlocked in 2-5 days or something. It's very Canadian centric (probably from detecting our IP)

I have seen CryptoLocker and even the newest Cryptowall 2.0 and luckily have had clients willing enough to pay out the ransom but I can't find a single piece of info on this virus.

Basically the virus has encrypted all picture files, pdfs, documents (much like Cryptolocker does) and they all now have a .exe extension added to them (ex: something.pdf.exe). If I simply try and remove the appended extension the file will not open. The virus is also creating a mapped drive of every share it can find on the network and using every single drive letter on the PC.

Any malware scanner I use (such as ESET or malwarebytes) will detect every single file that was encrypted/renamed and quarantine them. I'm not sure if there is any decryption method for this virus or if... Read more
