Love in Christ

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.
Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.
Ephesians 6:12, 13

I still want to know why changing the keyboard layout in Windows won't get you what you need.

Hello Steve:

I like having the single and double quote on the same key. On a UK
keyboard, the @ sign and double quote are swapped round.

If the ENTER key is vertical, the \key is moved to the top row, to the
left of the BACK SPACE key. If the ENTER key is horrizontal, the \ key
is above the ENTER key

On a UK keyboard, the \ key, is generally to the left of the letter
zed, thus making the left shift key, the same size as an alpha numeric
key. I am used to having a wide left shift key.

As I said previously, given time, I could and would get used to the
changes but, I just prefer the US keyboard layout.

Are the keys really different, not just software-defined differently?
Can you not tell Windows it's a US keyboard layout,and the devil with
what the key caps say? Interesting.

Thank you Steve for the suggestion.

I've been buying from them for the last 4 years. In fact, they are
located not far from where I was born. They are near Portstmouth, I
was born in Gosport.

My only problem in buying a Laptop from them, is that I want to have
a US keyboard layout, and they cannot provide that.

I do not particularly like the UK keyboard layout. Of course, if I
had no choice, I would get used to using one.
