How to load and modify my personalized W7 keyboard layout?

Q: How to load and modify my personalized W7 keyboard layout?

Hello,

Recently I moved to a new pc, with Windows 7, same as my previous device, but now 64 bit.
In the old pc I used a personalized keyboard layout, created with Keyboard Layout Creator 1.4.
I installed that creator again on my pc.
But whatever I do I can NOT:
? Reload my saved .klc file with the personalized 'old' keyboard
? Load any existing keyboard from the list.
At least: The program screen says that my layout IS loaded and active, but I do not see anything...

What do I do wrong?
What can I do better?

Thanks, greetings,
Wim/Indonesia

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.)

Hi Wim,

Is your old klc file is 32 bit??, installing it in compatability mode might work

Hi all,

when i boot my comp, my personalized settings do not load. I get a desktop as if i have just installed xp [welcome tour, welcome to ie8 etc]. When i restart, the problem is remedied.

is this a user profile corruption or something else.

Thanks in advance for any replies.
 

A:My Personalized Settins do not load on 1st boot

You can try Error Checking or sfc /scannow to see if that would help.

1. Error Checking-
Start - my computer - right click local disk (C) - properties - Tools Tab -
Error checking section - Check now - check mark both boxes - Start -
This requires a restart to begin.

2. Start - Run - type - sfc /scannow - OK
Don't forget the space between c and /
You may need the Recovery CD if any thing is found wrong.
Don't insert unless asked for.

Hi, I have a Lenovo Flex 2 14 which came with a British keyboard but I noticed you can take off the keyboard and swap it out for another one - you can find backlit versions, or a version with a different layout. I got a keyboard for it with Japanese hiragana on it, but the laptop doesn't seem to recognise any of the extra keys this keyboard comes with which have key codes not used by other languages. These keys include: | -? \ ??????the ????, ???? and ???? toggleI would have assumed this was to do with the fact that these are keys from a 106/109 key layout as opposed to the standard 102 key, so I replaced the keyboard driver with Microsoft's 106/109 key keyboard driver, but that hasn't had any effect - it still can't see these keys being pressed. The ??/?? ?? key works because it uses the same key code as the tilde on other keyboards, but that's all. My hypothesis for why this might not be possible to fix is that the ribbon connection between the keyboard and the motherboard could only support 102-key layouts in Europe, and therefore the only way to be able to use these extra input conversion keys without a different motherboard altogether would be to use an external USB keyboard. I may have just made up what I said about the motherboard though, so does anyone know if there's a driver I can use to solve this problem and be able to use the extra keys? I can't just use a key mapper like KeyTweak ...

So I purchased a Lenovo X1 Yoga in Japan and I absolutely hate Japanese keyboard layouts (anyone that has used one after using a US keyboard knows what I mean - a space bar that is smaller than the enter key, poor placement of certain keys, specifically ", ', and @. There is just no logic behind any of it and honestly, there is no need. One can easily type in Japanese, just fine, with a standard US English layout keyboard. Sorry, I guess I didn't need to state that, but perhaps it will help with SEO to ensure someone finds this page when searching for those keywords.  Anyway, I finally found the information I needed to swap this keyboard out (and throw it in the trash), even though Lenovo support in Japan basically told me it's not possible. It does seem like a huge undertaking though (as you basically have to dismantle the entire laptop to get the keyboard out). But it does seem as though the English keyboards are compatible with all X1 Yoga laptops (even my Japanese X1 Yoga). The Lenovo customer service staff told me to get FRU PN: 00JT864 (00JT864 N KBD,US,LB,screw,CHY,Backlit), which is the US English replacement keyboard. It's also specified on the PDF document  on this page (https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/PD103738 ) for the 20FR and 20FQ. Scroll half way down and you will see it.  However, I am having trouble finding the keyboard from a seller in Asia, with the same FRU #. When searching for 00JT864, the only source I can...

I have a Dell M1330 Laptop that has served me quite well for several years. I just replaced the keyboard the other day and everything is working fine, except that the new keyboard has a slightly different layout than the old keyboard did. For example, with the new keyboard all the F1, F2, F3, etc.. keys have function secondaries on them like multimedia, brightness, antennae toggle, and so on. My old keyboard didnt have most of these and so when I attempt to use them on the new keyboard they simply do not work. In fact when I use function keys as if I still had my old keyboard installed the functions work, which means it is the software interpretation of the keys that I need to change. Does anybody know how I can fix this so that the keys of the new keyboard and functions match what the keys actually say?

Another thing to add is that some of the new function keys on the new laptop such as antennae toggle were not on my last keyboard at all because they are softkeys on the case of my computer, and I am not sure a function like that would be able to be added to the keyboard mapping at all, but I'm not sure.

Also, I would prefer to not install third party software to accomplish this, even if it means I need to delve into the registry manually. Can anybody help??

if you right click on the desktop, and choose properties, you should find the menu where you set your screensaver, wallpaper, and other things.

in that tab, there is an option to choose the action that your computer takes when you hit that button.

Hi,

So this is really frustrating me.

I usually use the "United States - International" keyboard layout, since I like being able to do accents and use the Alt-GR key. However recently it has been causing problems and I'm not sure why.

One of the biggest examples is the ' key, usually if I press it and then a space it types either ' or ", depending on if I press shift or not. Well, in Firefox, I have to keep pressing the key about 4 times before it finally types two 's and I have to erase one. Pressing space does nothing. And if I press shift+6, it types "^^", as in, the character twice.

I could not figure out what was causing this, so I switched the layout back to US, and it works fine. But I simply cannot use US-International without it doing weird stuff. I tried "sfc /scannow", it found some problems and fixed them, but it's STILL doing the same thing.

Additionally, it appears something else weird is going on as when I try to use ALT codes, they don't do what they're supposed to... like most of them make a heart (♥) instead of what they SHOULD be doing.

I even tried making a custom keyboard layout, opening the normal US International on a completely different computer, then saving it and installing it on here, and it STILL does what I described above.

Has anyone else had a problem like this? I'd really like to get it fixed as without a working keyboard it's kinda hard to do my everyday business...

On my Lenovo notebook V110-15IAP N3350 the keyboard is for some reason not according to standard, which causes a great problem when using proper fingersetting. The shift key to the right is not correctly positioned and where it should located is instead the "arrow up" key. The consequence is that whenever I need to type a capital letter with the left hand (the left half of the keyboard) simultaneously using the little finger of the right hand, instead of striking the shift key the "arrow up" key is activated causing the cursor to relocate to the line above and type a lowcase letter there. Is there any rational explanation to why the keyboard has been obstructed and what can be done about it (without using an extra keyboard). Can the "arrow up" key be locked or removed somehow so that it is not activated. Preferrably though shift the two keys in question....

At the moment, I have the keyboard icon in my taskbar. If I click it, three options are displayed : French (Canada), Traditional French (Canada), and Show Language bar. By default, Traditional French is selected, which is what annoys me. If I right-click it, and click on Settings..., I get the "Services de texte et de langues" dialog. It says that my default input language is French (Canada). It is the only option in the select box, e.g. French Traditional is not there. Also, in the "Installed services" box in the lower left, again, only French (Canada) in installed (language, and keyboard layout).

Sometimes, when I boot the PC, the keyboard icon is NOT in the taskbar, and I do have the French Canada layout loaded. I'm wondering if that has anything to do with what member of my family logs in first... Most of the time though, the icon is there, and French Traditional is loaded by default.

My goal : to ALWAYS have ONE AND ONLY ONE keyboard layout: French (Canada).

Since it's not even shown in the "Services de texte et de langues" dialog, I have to idea how to remove the French Traditional one ?!?

Thanks.

If you want to remove an additional language input:

In the start menu type Change Keyboards.

Hi,

I am using a XP pro sp3 and yesterday I just installed a Japanese Office 2007. The Office 2007 runs with out any problem.

The only problem I having is that my Computer doesn't recognize my Japanese keyboard. It is using a English keyboard layout on my Japanese keyboard.

I did change the setting at "Regional and Language" to recognize Japanese keyboards. But it is as if my XP only has the standard keyboard in it and no other.

Do I have to reinstall the XP again?
Is there a other way to make my PC recognize a Japanese Keyboard?

Thank You

A:Keyboard layout problem

hmm... Its just a guess, but I would wonder if you would need to install some kind of Japanese language pack ? I remember turning all these languages off (that's all I really know about them), but I'm wondering if one of the functions of the language packs would be to enable the keyboard to be used for other languages ?
