Windows 7: Japanese keyboard to English keyboard?

Windows 7 Panasonic CF F9 (used to have CF F8)
Japanese keyboard to English keyboard?

Hi I bought a panasonic laptop in Japan in early 2010 and it is excellent, never had an issue.

When I removed the OEM Windows 7 and placed my dual boot, the Windows 7 installer made the keyboard USA or UK, (I forget which) and literally 90% of the keys are correct.

All of the A-Z are correct and the main symbols are fine or I have figured out where they are.

Anyways I desperately need the backslash - opposite to / to work. I have followed this tutorial did everything but alas, no joy.

Normally I would just copy and paste the symbol over but I need the backslash when using cmd which is causing me headaches...

So, solution - either I at last fix my keyboard to read or be a UK or USA keyboard - OR - is there a way to copy and paste the backslash when using cmd?

I know that you can use ASCII ALT + Numeric keyboard, but I dont have a numeric keyboard, just the standard 1-0 on the top level -



I do have a numeric keyboard, sorry, and to get the backslash you have to activate Num Lock, press ALT then 9 then 2 then release ALT
