    I wuz up late writing an essay in word, and I sumhow managed to change my keybord and the meaning of all most all the keys that are not letters or numbers! :confused:

    now when I try to use the question mark I get this È

    or if I try to quote I get this È....

    The real problem is that this is effecting the keys not only in word,
    but all other programs and the internet....:eek:

    If N E 1 has any idea how I might fix this, I would be eternally gratefull :D

    Muchuh Thanx

    Go to system prefs -> international -> formats : and make sure that you're in the region you want it to be in.. then go to -> input menu : and make sure that you only have the one language checked. Or if you have more than one language input that you change it back to the one you want...

    Thank u for the wonderful tips,

    I changed the region in formats to Canada...
    and now have only Canadian CSA checked in the languages, but it is still unfortunatly leaving me with the characters changed....
    they look like characters used in french...
    ie: ÈÙùèçÇ....

    is there anyway to restore the keys to their original meaning, so it shows up as it appears on the keyboard (insert question mark

    Uber thanx for the help! ;) :D ;) :D

    Unless you are typing en Francais, then turn your keyboard to US, not Canadian
