Hey all,
I recentley got myself a fresh new HDD and installed a brand new version of MS XP Pro, I was quickly instaling it and stupidly forgot to change the nationality of my keyboard to UK and am stuck with a mixed up, english keyboard that corresponds with the US keyboard interface. As I write alot on my computer I really need to know, if it is possible, how to change it back to being a UK Keyboard.
Hope somebody can help. Thanks.

Hi Jay1982 and welcome to Bleeping Computer!

I use XP Home edition but the procedure should be the same.

Click on "Start > Control Panel > Date, Time, Language, and Regional Options > Regional and Language Options."

Then in the drop down box choose "English - United Kingdom".

Don't forget to click on "OK"

One can also make other changes here to further customize settings.

The only easy day was yesterday.
