German keyboard layout problem

It has a german keyboard but instead of the qwertz layout it has a qwerty layout. I tried all keyboard and language input combinations but did not find a correct combination in Win 7. The best one is german with german. Now how can I swap/map the z and y?

The uses for mapping your keyboard are numerous, but remapping your keyboard's keys is not for the squeamish.
There are numerous software applications to map and remap a keyboard's keys.
The best part is that the software is free and easily downloadable via the Internet.
So, go ahead and swap those unused keys on your keyboard to suit your computing experience, and make your keyboard more effective without fear of damaging your computer

Place your mouse pointer over a key on the visual keyboard. Notice that the key is numbered.
To see what function the key is currently assigned to, allow your mouse pointer to hover over the key.
A pop-up displays what the key is attributed to.
Left-click the mouse pointer on a key you wish to change.
Click on Choose New Remapping from the drop-down menu.
Select Remap Key from the Control area on the interface.
You may also opt to disable or enable the key, and reset the default for this key.

Left-click Apply. Look at the list box at the top-left of the interface, labeled "Remapped keys currently in effect."
Ensure that the keyor keys you selected are listed in this list box.

Fix a mistake by resetting the defaults.
Click on the top button adjacent to the list box you just visited.
Pressing this button will remove all the changes to your keyboard mapping.
SharpKeys is a Registry hack that is used to make certain keys on a keyboard act like other keys.

When trying to type a capital K is is not typing that but a weird symbol. This just started happening.


The key combination you're referring to probably switched your keyboard layout.
For examply, I use Dvorak to type, but to switch over to regualar QWERTY, my family presses Alt+Shift.
Note, that's because I have it set up that way. Your combination might be different.
Try this:
Control Panel --> Search "languages" --> Click "Change keyboards or other input methods" --> Click the button that says "Change keyboards"
If you see anything other than plan "US" or "English" under "Installed Services", remove it.

I received a ku-0833 keyboard but no manual. What do the function key symbles mean? Also, where can I get the keyboard user's manual?


The US International English keyboard layout is recommended for those who are comfortable with the qwerty keyboard and need a variety of accent marks or symbols. It uses an intuitive method which works with most (perhaps all) Windows applications such as MS Office and web page software, while keeping the familiar qwerty layout. The installation details are below.

To use, press one of the five punctuation keys `? ~? ^ ?' ? "? , then the letter to be modified.?
' + a = ?,? " + u = ?,? ' + c = ? ? ? etc

Or use the right alt (or AltChar) key? + another key:?
right alt? + / = ¿??? + 1 = ¡???? + c = ©???? + e? = ???? +5 = €. ? This image shows many more.
iekeyboard.gif

Note that this system maintains the "qwerty" layout. However, the modifier keys `? ~? ^ ?' ? "? must sometimes be followed by pressing the space bar when they are actually intended. The system accepts common words, such as it's, without the space bar.

Layout Installation: Win XP:
Click Start, Settings, Control Panel, Regional and Language Options. Click the Language(s) tab. Click Details, then Add. Choose an Input language and a Keyboard Layout/IME. Use Apply to finish the process; the Windows installation CD may be needed. The keyboard or multilanguage sections in Start - Help may provide details. Screen images of the installation are here. For Win 2000 click this Carnegie Mellon site.

Windows Vista: Click Start, Control Panel, Clock, Language and Region, Change Keyboards. In the new window, click on the Change Keyboards button. This opens a new window called "Text Services and Input Languages". Click on the Add button. Scroll & check the English (United States) - United States-International keyboard. Click OK. Finally, in the upper part of the "Text Services and Input Languages" window, open the drop-down menu called Default Input Language and choose English (United States) - United States-International as your default for all input fields.

alt+shift? rotates through several language keyboards. Checking the Enable Indicator On Taskbar puts the default language on the taskbar. Or click the taskbar language icon to switch to another language. In Win XP, click the Preferences section for these steps.

hope this helps
