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

I have a Y580 model 2099, which is the Japanese version. My space bar is losing its bounce on the side where I use it most, and I can't seem to find a mechanical way to fix it.  Lenovo Japan says there's no replacements for this keyboard. A google search shows an item available in the US, for $130 plus $60 overseas shipping. There are US/UK versions of the keyboard available, and also matching products on AliExpress. What would happen if I installed a US keyboard in place of the Japanese one? Pics of both for reference are below. Japanese:https://imgur.com/gallery/1hk4p UK:http://g01.a.alicdn.com/kf/HTB1nX4VKFXXXXX8XFXXq6xXFXXX7/New-UK-font-b-Keyboard-b-font-For-font-b-Le...

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

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.

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

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!

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.

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...?

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.

I am introducing myself too. We live in France but we all speak English (I teach it). I searched the forum before posting this.

I bought my daughter a Lenovo laptop W7 Edition Familiale Premium (Home Premium). But she first-booted it in French before she realized that she could not change later to English. Ooops and merde.

Now I want to run Windows Anytime Upgrade to buy an Ultimate upgrade, but those wacky French seem to have changed its name such that W7 does see it.

I try to follow MS on-line instructions: "Open Windows Anytime Upgrade by clicking the Start button . In the search box, type anytime upgrade, and then, in the list of results, click Windows Anytime Upgrade."

But Start does not find it, probably because it's been renamed to something French.

Any francophones out there who can help us?

A:What is Windows Anytime Upgrade called on a French language Lenovo?

Hi RenoHuskerDu, welcome to the Seven Forums.

As all internal Windows commands are the same in any language, you should be able to run Anytime Upgrade from Command Prompt or Run dialog.

Try this:Open Run dialog by pressing Win + R
Type following to the Run dialog:


Press Enter
This should open Anytime Upgrade dialog, in French I'm afraid but I am sure you will manage it. It has two options, you should select the first one if you want to buy the key online, and the second one if you already have a key:In the mean time I will install a French Windows 7 on a virtual machine to check exactly what and where you need to click and type in case this does not work for you.

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...

Hi! I've got Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 Silver (https://www.alza.cz/EN/lenovo-ideapad-yoga-13-silver-d375124.htm), and while I am quite content with the device, my keyboard stopped working. I was wondering whether any of you might know and suggest an online reseller (official or otherwise), where I could get hold of a replacement keyboard. Now, I suppose backlit keyboard versions of newer Yoga laptops will not work I guess, will they? From what I have read Yoga 13 Silver does not have the slot required for backlit, but aside that, will the keyboard function and will it fit (dimension-wise)? If so, what is the voltage and current required? Would soldering a small battery to the backlit cable be a good idea (I accept the fact that I wouldn't be able to regulate it)? Thank you in advance!ck

After talking to the support at the store where I bought it, they said to send it in for repair. I did and now Medion who handle the repairs for Lenovo want me to pay for a new keyboard and labor.I have photographic evidence of the state of the computer before I send it in. Not a scratch on it. Does Lenovo not have warranty on laptop keyboards?  Is there any written document with information on how long the estimated life span of a Lenovo keyboard is? What parts of the laptop are under warranty? Thanks.

A:Lenovo Y50-70 keyboard warranty

You can read through the warranty book but I dont think it will ever mention about specific parts warranty -
However, your keyboard should be covered by warranty unless ofcourse there is visible proof of mishandling of the laptop.
You can call Lenovo customer sevice and talk to a supervisor. This is not the official Lenovo forum and I believe you need to talk to a Lenovo rep.

Hey guys, I was doing the dishes with my laptop nearby and some water spilled on the keyboard, not too much though. The laptop was fine but maybe a few hours later some of the keys would make errors. For example when i press the 1 key the output is "`1" and i get the same output when i press the ` key. Many of my keys are doubled up like this such as five which outputs 54, and two which outputs f-two, and two. The computer is very tough to use in this state. I have been using it for quite a while since and just assumed its a hardware issue. Oddly, once in a while it will work for about ten minutes, then go back to being broken. Does anyone know how I can fix this?Thanks!

A:Lenovo Y50 keyboard issue

After water damage, it's best to let the computer sit for about 24-48 hours. Turning it on could cause more damage. If you can, try removing the keyboard and putting it in rice. If the keyboard still acts up after letting it sit, you'll need a keyboard replacement (which in this case means the upper case) Let me know if the keyboard still has issues after drying, and I'll find the correct part to replace fo ryou.

A:Lenovo G50 80 Keyboard Problem

It may take longer to have all the liquid evaporate from the keypad. Use a can of computer air to gently blow air under the keys, or set a fan to blow on the keyboard for a few hours then try again. If it still fails, you may need a replacement keyboard. They are usually less than $30 USD and easily swapped out. The Maintenance Manual for your notebook can be found on the support tab of this website. Enter your serial number, open the documents listing and then download your manual.Good luck.CB

This is my first post here so please be kind!

The keyboard of my Lenovo 3000 N200 laptop has developed a fault. It uses XP Pro

A few keys have started to map to the wrong letters

't' is displayed as 'tb'
'y' as 'yn'
'b' as 'tb' and
'n' as 'yn'

This is both in lower and upper case and affects all software including at the Dos prompt. All the other letters are OK


'Backspace' deletes 1 character but leaves the cursor in its original position
'Space' does nothing at all unless it is held down and then I get repeated spaces with no carriage return! This is also the same effect when holding down the Backspace.

Any ideas on what is wrong and how I can get back to the original correct mappings?

Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.
First make sure this is a hardware concern.
Run an Onscreen Keyboard, by Pressing (Windows key + R) then type in OSK then hit enter
Now on your onscreen Keyboard click on the keys that are not working see if they responding with the Onscreen keyboard.
If the keys responded using the Onscreen Keyboard, Then your Keyboard hardware is bad.
Update us how it goes.
