If you have a keyboard that will shift between English and another language with a toggle switch (hitting a couple of keys at the same time), you have probably run into some frustrations and problems. I know I have.
Because Canada is a bilingual country, many of the computers sold here offer an English/French keyboard as a feature. In some parts of the country, it’s a French/English keyboard! ; ) This isn’t a big draw for me because I rarely type in French, so I would not flock over to get one, however, my keyboard still has French shortcuts (combining a couple of keys to toggle this on and off). I am not going to say how many times I have done this inadvertently and how time consuming it’s been to turn it off. Doing a search on HP’s site (home turf for my particular laptop) resulted in a huge file of zilch! : S I could find nothing on which shortcuts I was accidentally hitting to bring up the other lingo.
Today, this happened again and, upon searching, I found this gem. I hope it will save you gobs of hair that might be extracted in exacerbation if you accidentally toggle the other language on! : ) You can turn it off completely! Yay! Check out this site for further details. Et voila – et, revoir! : )
Wishing you a satisfyingly productive week!
