Post subject:  Typing in French / keyboard help?

On my laptop I have the preinstalled Windows 98 and I would like to be able to type in French characters on the Dancer forum, ( my french is so marginal that i don't need any more help at looking bad ). Unfortunately the preloaded Windows software does not have the international/US keyboard loaded on it and they didn't send me the full Windows 98 CD . Does anyone know where I can download that keyboard set? This is a tempory problem because it's upgrade time , but it is driving me bananas.

Well, Matthew, before you get all excited - I can't help you, because I am very technically challenged.

However, you looked kind of lonely here in this thread all by youself, so I thought I would drop in and say 'hi.'

Depending on how your computer was originally set up, this will probably work:

Click "Start" and then "Help".

Click on "Index".

Type "lang".

Double-click on the word "keyboard".

Click on "To add a keyboard language or layout".

Follow the directions.

you know, french is perfectly understandable without those special characters... You don't need to give yourself all this trouble! ;)

Merci Marie et Paquita. Cherchez-vous mes questions à le Danser forum. Paquita, je voudrais vous écrire en ce qui concerne Paris et POB.
