Having problems with your Acer PC Laptops ?

It has american keyboard configuration when i need english


Answers :

You can change the software keyboard layout from the Control Panel, "International Settings", then "Languages", "Details" and add a keyboard layout.

I believe US English to be already available in the system; otherwise, the OS will ask you insert the installation CD-ROM, so have it handy.

Afterwards, you'll have BOTH keyboard layouts available (a switch near the tray area will appear) unless you uninstall the US Keyboard layout.
Click start > control panel >regional settings then click on keyboard and languages and change the keyboard type to english (united kingdom) then on the us keyboard and click remove, it will say it cant remove it as its in use just click ok then restart the pc and you will then have a uk keyboard instead
