    Is there a way to 'convert' an Apple keyboard which is designated French so that I can use it to type English? The last time I looked (and I am not a French speaker) all the letters are shared between the two languages with the extras of a few accenuations etc. I inherited one of these and looking to see if I can use it although keyboards don't get much use with this particular machine which is mainly used as a home server.

    Is there a setting somewhere that I can simply change to convert this keyboard to English?

    go to settings -> language & text -> input sources tab and then scroll down and click on whatever version of english you want.

    I've checked "show input menu in menu bar" since I actually switch between a few languages, but if you're just sticking to english this won't be necessary.


    hope that helps!
