Reminds me of trying to set up little Misses laptop ..
How the hell was I to know there is different Keyboard thingos, Qwerty perky and what ever ..
Seems I clicked the wrong English language or something and some of the keys wouldnt work as they should.

I just might resort to that if I can't retrain my brain.
Sounds like a good prank to pull on someone.....

I have both my laptops running UK keyboard layouts; however, only one of them has a UK keyboard, and the wireless or desk keyboards are all Australian ones... I still don't know where a couple of keys are... it does make it a bit more difficult when you can't get a \ when you need it...

Do sometimes get a typo here and there as the Enter key is a different shape on the UK keyboard (which is what I'm using now), but the trade off to having $, £ and € all easy to get at is worthwhile - but the top one is watching an Aussie enter an email address and getting " instead of @

Send it back, not fit for purpose, doesn't meet qwerty keyboard design criteria.
Probably should. If I say it's a OH&S issue..... Causing me mental distress....I need a day off..
Oh no, I'm turning into a Millennial...... (apologies to any millennials reading this as any that are on this forum are probably quite normal)

Cross them out and write what you want on the key.
Never thought of that did ya??
No I didn't think of that...it just might work

Sometimes there's an option in the BIOS to swap the keys, so Fn becomes CTRL and vice versa

Just another bit of eye candy. This one is the real deal and at the time the only one in Australia and unless there's anymore that have been brought here since its sale, there's now none.
Sometimes I just love my job!

First world problem rant.
Just got a shiny new computer for work to replace the coal fired slug I've endured for 3yrs.
They have swapped the left hand CTRL and Fn keys around!  Opposite to every other computer I've used for years.
 The CTRL is always the outside key........ What twisted minds could do this to mess with my head...……?
