French Keyboard Help

Q: French Keyboard Help

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
--French

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.

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

Thanks

Hi,

I have a laptop Asus R301L which means that I don't have a numeric keyboard and the keyboard is a German one. How can I type the French ? ? I can't use the ASCII code because I don't have a numeric keyboard and there is no shortcut on my keyboard. Any idea?

Many thanks.

Hi Guys

I am currently learning french and I would like to be able to type french accents on my keyboard.I know there is a way of setting up the keyboard in XP but I have forgotten as it was a long time ago since I last had to do this.UK keyboard as oppossed to US as I am in the UK.I found a site on the web that gave me these instructions....

start>control panel>keyboard>language settings this is where it falls down as my PC does not display language settings just pulse speed and cursor speed..can anyone point me in the right direction please

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

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.

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!

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.

Any ideas what this may be?

My office computer runs Vista and sometimes the keyboard language switches over to French. The strange thing is that the keyboard is only in French within Microsoft Word. In any other program (Chrome, Excel, Notepad...), it's still in good ol' English. Also, the selected language at the bottom in Word is still English, so it's still spell checking the right language. 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...?

It may be more difficult re-mapping all the special embedded keys of a laptop but Windows allows you to change your keyboard layout for standard keyboards and you could use an external USB keyboard.

And, yes, you can purchase key decals: Amazon.com: English US Non-Transparent Keyboard Sticker On Black Background: Office Products

This is an example any large computer or office supply store in your area should have something similar in your local language.

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.

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.

A:Windows 7 French edition: IE8 can't "see" french pages

You just need to set your language options in IE in your preferred order... and if you are going to use cyrillics at all you must have the far eastern language fonts too (as odd as that sounds... d'accord/harosho?)...

Control Panel > Internet Options > Language Button (it's in the first tab...) and set French, Russian, English in their ORDER of personal importance...

Is that true, is there a way around this problem - he is learning french slowly while out there, but would find it more natural in English.

go into the control panel and click on regional and language settings. on the first page you have standards and formats, click customize and pick what you want, then click advanced and make that the same as you picked in the first window.

A:my computer is in french

there should be some letters in bottom right on the task bar and just left of the notification area (were the time is displayed). The letters mean what language your PC is in, eg. Mine is in English so the letters are 'EN'. You can click on it and change the language.

alternatively, you can change language in the control panel. I presume the icons will be the same in any language.

start---control panel (picture of a square with a tick on it and a pencil)------regional and language options (picture of a globe). then you can select language you want.

Hi,

I would like to keep all settings on my PC in English (browsers, research engine...etc). This is easier and faster to find solutions to any hardware or software related problems, and helps me to improve English!
The problem is that the programs often turn automatically back to French after I set them in English!
For example, I can't keep Google home page in English! When I set it to English it quickly turns to French and research results appear mostly in French! I tried to change the language settings into English in all language settings but no change!
Worse, sometimes when I download an English version of a program I have it in French after installation!
I think this is due to automatic detection of country and OS installed. Is there any way fix this automatic detection or turn it off to avoid being targeted by local ads and languages?
I want to keep English as my default language for every thing on my PC but this seems impossible!
Does the changing of OS to English would be the right and good solution?

A:Everything turns to French, I am fed up!

To change the system locale:

Start> Control Panel> Clock, Language, and Region> Region and Language> Administrative tab> Language for non Unicode programs> Change System Locale> Select English and click OK> Click Restart Now

I'm running Windows XP on an Inspiron 530. When I go to use spellcheck on Outlook Express, it does it in French. My understanding is that Office detemines spellcheck language. It is in English! Any ideas?

In OE, go to Options, Spelling. At the bottom is a language bar - select the version of English you want there.

This happened a long time ago, I first got AVG and it screwed my computer so bad, now I fixed it and I have been stuck with a french start menu. Can someone please help?
 

A:My start menu is in French

This is a very odd issue. Never heard of it.

You might have to do a repair from your XP CD. Or, you could try a scf /scannow.
