My wife bought me a HP 15 Notebook PC in Luxembourg for my birthday with a "French" k/board. I have done the necessary changes to the keys but cannot find how to do the following:
access the @ key (for my emails) or the $ sign used in an accounts package as part of a password.

Press the windows key + X and click on Control Panel

Click Add and select French
Then click on the other keyboards in the list US will be there) and click remove so Only French is there.
Click ok and close the windows and it will now be set correctly.
I can also do these steps for you, and have made a request via Additional Services. This is optional, and if you choose to do this, I can, with your permission, remote into your computer while you watch and do all these steps (and deal with any problems that arise during them) for you. Or if you do not choose to take this service, we can continue here. This is no problem at all. Just let me know please.
