How to Change the Keyboard settings to English in XP
NB: Although Vista is much the same, some of the tabs are labelled slightly different.
Control Panel and select Regional & Language Options
On the "Regional Options
" tab, use the drop-down menu to select "English (United Kingdom)"
Next go to the "Languages
" tab and click "Details
" then again from the drop-down menu ensure "English (United Kingdom)
" is set as the default language.
All and any other keyboard settings in the box below can be safely removed.
Don't forget to hit "Apply" and also be prepared to re-start your PC if asked.
Should you ever want to re-select another keyboard setting, then do exactly the same as you have just done.
