Windows 7: Where can I find Keyboard code page?

Where can I find Keyboard code page?

I have installed QB45 and some QuickBasic programs in DOSbox on my Windows 7 32bit computer. But the keyboard code page that is loaded is 437, which I think is American. I need one for Windows English. I think I need UK 166 or UK 168 although I don't know which of the two. I also need a source for the code page file. Any help would be appreciated.

I think you may be confusing DOS keyboard layout with codepages.

The codepage is the character set, I don't think there was a codepage 166 or 168? Those are keyboard layout "IDs". for two different UK keyboards.

See: MS-DOS keyb command help

To change the keyboard layout you would use:

keyb uk

That is if what you are looking for is to have your UK keyboard working properly. If you are missing some characters then you can also set the codepage at the same time with

keyb uk,850

or maybe try 858 if you want the euro symbol.

Though help from a DOSBox forum might be able to be more specific.
