i have a japanese laptop (IBM thinkpad i 1456) and changed the operating system over to english and now the keyboard layout does not correspond with the japanese keyboard layout.
it still uses qwerty but some function key have changed.
i don't want to write or read in japanese but just use the keys which are displayed on the my keyboard.
for example, shift 2 is used to get the @ symbol on english keyboards layout but on my japanese keyboard the @ symbol is where the [ symbol is.
i have tried gooing to control panel /keyboard/language tab but japanese is not in the language drop-down menu.
is there a way around this?
can someone please help me?
