Hi,
I have a latop whose keyboard leyout is uk one.But by mistake when I reinstalled windows xp i choose the us layout due to which I have problem typing my password in the startup.You know that( just for example) in uk keyboard leyout when you press shift+2 then " comes and in us keyboard when you press shift+2 @ comes.My domain login password policy is built in such a way that i must put @ in the password but due to this problem whenever I type password while I start window I mistakely press " and it won't allow me to logon.Since I have more experience on typing on uk leyout compared to us.So I request anyone to please provide me the method to change keyboard leyout from very brginning of startup of windows because I even installed keyboard leyout uk region and setting in control panel it support us leyout on computer startup but only start uk leyout after windows load.

Thank you

I think you didn't undrstand.let's for example my password in domain is abc@cdf.Due to installing in us keyboard leyout whenever I try to enter password at logon screen I press " instead of @ due to difference in keyboard leyout.Means upto startup windows is taking us keyboard leyout but after login I can work with uk keyboard leyout in word,excel etc.SO what I need is the methos to change the keyboard to uk completely not only after loading windows

anyway thanks for your reply

You need to make Global system chances. You have to be Administrator, not User to make changes to the entire system. This would make changes that would load up as Windows loads, not when the user signs on. You are editting User setting not Sytem wide settings.

You change it the same way as when you are logged in as a user, Start>Control Panal>keyboard. You have to be logged in as Administrator for the chsnge to take effect for the entire system.

there is no such option to change the keyboard leyout when I enter Start>Control Panel>keyboard. So please define the process in little detail so that I can understand.Thanks
