Hi!
I have set my keyboard layout to a "qwerty" mode in my account but at the login screen, it is in azerty mode (Francais france: the default for this version of windows). Is there a way to set it to a qwerty layout (in that case, french canada) effective at the login screen?
(config file to set or else)

Thx!

Do you have the Fr logo sitting in the taskbar ? If yes, go into properties, it corresponds to Regional Settings in control panel, there what keyboard layout do you have ? Fr, Fr-canadian ? From there, add the right keyboard and del the Fr (which is mine actually ;) )
But I think this is an option you set during install...
Hope this helps you... ;)

As far as I know you would have to change this in the registry under

HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Keyboard Layout\Preload

Change the value for 1 to the same value you have at

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Keyboard Layout\Preload

Should be 00000c0c for French (Canada) but better look what you've got there.

It works! thanks!


Howling Wolf, the problem was before I could login, so the taskbar wasn't there yet, thanks anyway!

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
