How do I use the French part of my E 15 keyboard

Q: How do I use the French part of my E 15 keyboard

I have a E5-532T which I bought in Canada. It shows some french and other things on the keys such as 1/4 1/2 3/4.These are all in green, but I have no idea just how to access them. The Function key is not it, and I was wondering, does anyone know how to us them?

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?

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.

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.

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!

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

Im creating a normal document in Microsoft Word and I need to have one section of information automatically copied and pasted to another section of the document... and like update when any info is changed. Basically its a notes section on each page of the document that I want copied to a summary section without deleting the original notes. Ive tried understanding forms and macros but Imnot even sure thats what I should be trying. Can anyone help?
