Keyboard keeps reverting to US settings instead of UK
Posted on 2005-04-11
This is getting really frustrating. Just working away on my main xpsp2 desktop PC, in the UK, and wanting UK keyboard settings.
It keeps getting set back to US settings , so " comes out as @ etc. Sometimes it does it every few minutes.
I'm not really using any strange software. Outlook, MS development tools, IE6, Sql tools etc. Its the same through RDP (both PCs on UK settings by default) or on the "console". When using rdp the laptop only has UK settings available, but the "server" xp machine still keeps switching to US settings
I have tried removing US settings completely but it always says they're in use and will be removed at next reboot, of course, they never are.
Gets worse still when I use webex, but definitely bad even when webex never started since reboot.
