Keyboard layout setup (windows 7)

Recommended Posts

Whenever i press grave (~) or quote characters (" & ') there is an input pause/lag (to call it that) like it is waiting for some other key, and it is going on my nerves that i will explode and smash it with mace from anger. I tried googling but cannot find concrete answer how to setup keyboard layout to be "normal", like when i press some key it should print immediately not making stupid pause, so i posted here in hope someone will help me with this problem.

Today i was typing some code in VS 2010, and after some time i don't know which combination of keys i pressed (i was accidently activated some language shortcut maybie) and now whenever i press '#' it prints pound symbol. Now i have to copy that character from other files so that i can use it.

 

I have exacly like this keyboard layout and i want it to print the exactly the same characters that are drawn on keys as i press it. Is it possible? Please help.

 

Thank you for your time.

Looks like you switched your keyboard layout to English UK if you get £ instead of #. You can change that in the control panel. (I haven't got Win7, I have XP, and it is hidden away in Regional and Language Options -> Languages -> Text services and input languages -> Details... not in the Keyboard options, lulz)

 

Dunno about your quotes and your grave problem.

Also make sure to disable the shortcut to switch layouts just in case... If I recall correctly it's really easy to type by accident (I think it was alt+shift?). I guess you'll stick to only that layout, but I'm posting this just in case somebody still wants several layouts for whatever reason (and I think this applies to IME too).
