Last Modified: 2013-12-28
When i'am login in to my computer, login and password must be typt in, in qwerty (my keyboard is azerty). As soon my computer is logt in, the layout of my keyboard is azerty.
Is it possible to set the keyboard layout at startup also in azerty and not in qwerty, so that i can type my username and password on a keyboard with a azerty layout?

Open the registry and go to the key :
HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Keyboard Layout\Preload
Set the 1 string value to 0000080C
0000080C is belgian keyboard
what is your language ?
FR is 0000040C

You may use the same value as in the key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\International\Locale


No my language is Dutch, not French. But I hope that your answer wil do the trick?
