Language Bar Will Not Display Button Number 2 Keyboard Layout Button


The language bar will not display button number 2 "keyboard layout button" as shown in help as the language bar (overview). I add 2 more language to english (en). I can switch languages from the language bar button #1 "input language button. I think button #2 "keyboard layout button" should let me select corresponding keyboard layout view on the screen. I can see kb layout previews when i add them but not on the the language bar as indicated in the help menu.

Changing Action Of Media Center Button Of Keyboard

Changing the action of my "start windows media center" button of my keyboard - without drivers! I am using windows 7 on my htpc (home theater pc, if someone isn't familiar with the terminology :)) and i love it so far! However, there is one thing which i'm not in love width - and that's the windows media center.

My keyboard (deltaco tb-220) has a special button from which i can start the wmc, but i'd rather use xbmc (xbox media center). The problem is that there aren't any software from which i can change the function of the special keys!

So, my question is: does anyone know a way to change the "default" media center from wmc to something else? For example with htpc remote controls or keyboards like mine and similar? Perhaps through editing something in the registry?

5 Button Mouse Acts As 2 Button Mouse

I have been using the microsoft wireless laser 8000 mouse (4 buttons & scroll wheel) without any issues under windows xp and windows server 2008 r2. Unfortunately, i am not able to get the extra functions (left, right buttons and scroll wheel) to react at all. I have the latest intellipoint 7. 0 64-bit installed. I have uninstall and reinstalled the software, uninstalled the software and did a "clean" boot to install the software, without success. How can i fix this problem?

Annoying Keyboard Layout

Me as a student have to write a lot of papers but because i write in multiple languages i need to use diacritical marks. So i changed my keyboard layout to english - us international, annoyingly when i want to type my apostrophe it will automatically double itself and ignores the dead keys, and the same thing happens to the quotation mark. I tried to change the keyboard layout to dutch - us international but it only works till i shut down my laptop, so after i turn on my laptop it happens again but now with the dutch - us international layout. So now the only solution i have is becoming a routine, switching keyboard layouts.

Japanese Keyboard Layout

I just installed windows 7 professional english version on my computer which has a japanese keyboard. During the installation, i set the keyboard layout as 'japanese', but now it works like a us keyboard. I checked:-

[Control panel] -> [change keyboards or other input methods] -> [tab: keyboards and languages] -> [change keyboards. ] And found the japanese keyboard layout, but it was the us layout. Also, i read the page http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/927824 but it didn't work on windows 7. How can i fix this?

Keyboard Layout In Win 7

I understand that if i want to change all the display/os settings to a second language i need to use windows 7 ultimate (or enterprise). That's not quite what i want to do. My system is in english and that is what i want to keep it. However, i am studying chinese, and occasionally need to change my keyboard layout/language to output chinese characters for homework assignments (either in ms word or in web browsing).

Do i need the ultimate edition to do that as well or can i do that with windows 7 home premium. Other than this, home premium has all the "bells and whistles" i need.

Radio Button

My wireless internet stopped working on my laptop with windows 7, dell inspiron 1545. I reset my router and 2 computers connect with the internet just fine. When i try to connect the laptop, i'm asked to reset the radio button. The listing for dell is to hit the fn + f2 button. But nothing happens after waiting, redoing, restarting. I don't see an icon in the tray for radio or anything like it. I right clicked the "connect to" button to find available wireless, but nothing shows up. Any ideas what to do next?

Language Bar Changes Itself

The language bar randomly changes the language from us english to chinese for no particular reason, it also changes the keyboard input from us to multilingual canada, (which isn't that bad, you just lose out on most of your punctuation) has anyone else encountered this problem, i can change it back, it's just annoying when your typing and then you look at the screen and somewhere halfway through it you see that the language changed without any intention.

I can change it back but every couple days on the 3 computers i have purchased win7 for are having this issue, so i know it's not a hardware issue.

Japanese Ime Keyboard Layout

When using the microsoft ime for japanese input the ime defaults to japanese keyboard layout even though i am using a uk keyboard. For e.g. The @ and " are the wrong way round. I know other keyboards can be chosen under the japanese language however choosing anything but the microsoft ime results in not being able to input japanese.

So. The ime must be used. How can the layout be changed under the microsoft ime? This issue existed in vista and xp. In fact the last time i remember being able to use a uk keyboard on a japanese ime was on windows 98!

No Log In Or Submit Button

When i want to log in to my email there isn't any log in button. I have to search all over to find where it is by clicking the mouse all over. The same happens on some games, or when i want to order something or doing surveys. It will say click submit and there isn't any button to click. In other words, those buttons or whatever you call them, have disappeared.

Reserve How Fn Button Works?

I have an hp g62-134ca. On my old computer (running vista) i used to use f2 to edit cells in excel instead of having to double-click. It saved me a lot of time. On my new computer (g62-134ca), the fn button works in reserved. In other words, if i press f2, the monitor brightness is decreased (f3 makes the monitor brighter). To edit an excel cell, i need to press the fn + f2 combo (or double-click with my mouse). I'm wondering if there's a way that i could reverse how the fn button works so that if i press f2, i edit an excel cell, and if i press fn + f2 i decrease the monitor brightness. Thank you for any tips!

Shutdown Button Sometimes Deactivated

I have a problem with windows 7 professional 64 bit. Sometimes the shutdown button is deactivated, i can see the button but can't click on it. Only with ctrl+alt+del it's possible to shutdown, log off etc. The error appears randomly so sometimes it works, and i can shutdown, log off etc. With clicking the button. It isn't a user-right based error because i have the problem with admin rights and also with normal user rights. I don't have a policy running where the shutdown button is deactivated. I installed the os with help of the waik tools, sysprep and a unattend.xml file but i don't set anything like this in the unattend file. Does somebody have any idea what it could be?

Use Macro During Hold Mouse Button

For in a game i want to put a macro under de left mouse button, which is activated only when the mouse button is pushed and deactivates as soon i let go of the mouse button. I'm using a trackball explorer with intellipoint 7. 1 in win7 x64. At the moment i only can deactivate the macro when i push the mouse button again. Is there a way to deactivate the macro just by releasing the mouse button?

Also i have to disable uac completely to use programmable buttons via intellipoint in the game. The game has to run in administrator mode. I don't like the fact using macro's in games with the uac disabled. Is there another way to get macro recognized in games which run in admin mode?

Search And The Up One Level (folder) Button

So i have searched for something and found the folder i am looking for. I want to delete this folder (not just its contents) and maybe some other things in it's parent folder. Anyhow, i click into this folder from the search and then try to go up. First instinct, up button. Well that's not there, that's just old habit. Look to the whole breadcrumb bit. Only takes me back to my search.

Why would i want to go back to my search if i found what i am looking for. Lright, well maybe i am missing something. *Right click* look for up a level or something. Nada. The only way i can find out where i am is by clicking on a file and going to it's properties. Sorry, but this is just plain poor designing. I'll admit that maybe i am missing something still, please someone help me.

Start Button Doesn't Work

I have a toshiba laptop. I recently upgraded to windows 7, using all the compatibility programs from both microsoft and toshiba. I got the green light, and the message that windows had installed properly. Now, however, my start button only works intermittently. I reboot and reboot until it gives up and lets me access my programs. This is not something that happens because i haven't let the computer boot up properly. It sometimes stops working after i have been using the computer for hours.

Manage Default Printers Button Missing

I want to use window 7's ability to set different default printers for at home and at work, but the "manage default printers" button is missing from my screen. I had windows professional installed, but thought i read somewhere that it was only available with ultimate, then later i read that it was only available with premium. Do i need to do something when i connect to my home or office connection or turn something on for this feature to work?

Sidewinder X3 Mouse Wheel Button Problem

I had my sidewinder x3 mouse for a few months now and it was working perfectly until yesterday the mouse wheel started to act up, heres what it does: the button it self still clicks perfectly but for the mouse to actually read i pressed it i need to apply more pressure. It specially does this after i scrolled down but not as much after i scrolled up. I already brought back 2 other x3's at the store, one had the same problem and the other one jammed at a certain point when scrolling. Now the store wont take it back since my warranty is over. I use this mouse for first person shooters like call of duty modern warfare 2 so its very impotent for me that my hardware performs flawlessly. Is there anything i can do to fix this?

Disable Button In Device Manager Greyed Out

I am trying to disable a device in device manager of windows 7 64-bit pro. But the button is greyed out and in the drop down list (if i right click on the device) the option to disable is also not available. Is there a way to get that option back?

This is for the touchpad of my sony laptop. I want to use a little software i found that can automatically enable/disable the touchpad depending on the presence of an external mouse. But this software wants to disable the touchpad. But it can't because the option is missing from device manager.

Minimize, Maximize And Close Button Disappears

For some reason the minimize, maximize and close buttons disappear on top of my windows. This is so for all applications. The buttons are not visible, but they still work. For instance, if i click in the top right corner of the application, the application will close.
 
I don't know what causing this. Sometimes it happens just after i started my pc. Sometimes it doesn't occur for over an hour. I've tried to detect the reason, but i wasn't able.
 
I've surfed the internet trying to find a solution, but couldn't find anything that works (they speak of nvidia drivers often, but there isn't a nvidia driver in my laptop. ) Does anyone have a solution for this problem?

Ie8 Crashes When Send Button Is Pressed In Owa

I'm running windows 7 home prem. And connecting to my office via outlook web access. At first i couldn't type in the box as the red x appeared in the top left corner. I then downloaded the s/mime code from the exchange server which fixed the red x but now when i hit send ie comes back and says internet explorer has stopped working.

There is no other description of the problem. I have disabled dep, then re-enables, no change. I have reset my ie8 settings, no change. Also on another note, i cannot remove the s/mime using add/remove programs.

Ok Button Doesn't Work When Hitting Enter

When navigating within various dialogue boxes of a menu, i'm unable to use the enter key to have it move to next box or screen. In other operating versions of windows, i was able to use the enter key rather than using the mouse and manually clicking on the ok button. For the most part it does work in windows 7, but when getting into the "inners" of the os, it doesn't not work. Is there a setting or something i can use to have the enter key functional on any ok buttons?
