Keyboard problem-keyboard-problem.jpgHi Guys, I have been along that line before,

Now on Torchwood's suggestion I have been back today ( it is already on English UK ) but I have gone a bit further,

Does this screenshot make any sense to any of you ?

Sorry, the working language on this computer is Dutch , an other thing that drives me mad.

Keyboard problem-keyboard.jpgWell,one really good side effect happened, by trying everything they propose on the net, I managed by accident to change the working language on this windows 7 Professional laptop from Dutch to English !!!!!

So it IS possible !!!!!

Ok back to the problem.

When I type the back slash key it displays (#).

Here a screenshot of my keyboard ;

I will continue my research on the Net, if I find the solution I let you know.

PS can have to do with languages, numeric keys and much more, or just a stupid mistake in the past by me or a former owner, but I need to solve it, and .... I am not the only one with this problem

PSPS there is a very interesting page on Wikipedia when you just type ; Keyboard

Ok, problem solved, I looked on Wikipedia at the difference between En-Uk and EN USA input for keyboards and found out that I was using an American English keyboard with UK English software.

So I have changed my input language from UK English to UA English. Problem solved.
