Hello Experts,

I am trying to change my keyboard to the Dvorak Simplified Keyboard layout.  I want to see if it is really as efficient as stated.  Anyways, I do not know how to change my keyboard keys from one letter to another.  For example, in my normal keyboard the letter 's' will be 'o' in the Dvorkak keyboard.

Also, if you have any suggestions about the Dvorak Simplified Keyboard, please let me know!

By the way, do you use the Dvorak keyboard layout?  If so, how has it affected you?
