French computer keyboards are quite special, and are not made like most others. If you want to switch from one to the other or fix a wrong move, here’s how.
This tutorial is for two very different types of people. The first is the individual wishing to change the allocation of his keyboard keys to adapt to another language and make typing easier. The other type is the group of unlucky people who accidentally changed the keys and who bite their fingers without managing to put everything back as before. No matter where you are, JVTech explains how to switch from QWERTY to AZERTY and vice versa easily.
Add a new language on your Windows computer
The key assignment is related to a change in the general language of the keyboard (and not of the computer as a whole). So, if you want to change the language of your keys, you have to add a new one in the settings. Of course, if you made a mistake and your hits have changed, a second language has already been added.
In both cases, go to the Settings app from your Windows computer, then:
To go faster, type “language” directly in the search bar settings placed in the center. Once done, click on the first choice among those that appear, called “Change language and keyboard settings”. You arrive in the “Language” category. At the bottom of the page is the “Preferred languages” section which interests us. If you are tired of doing a wrong manipulation, you just have to remove other language(s) and keep only French. If you want to add QWERTY or other, you can add the language that suits you.
Switch between AZERTY and QWERTY
If you have added a second language or if you don’t want to remove one, here’s how to easily switch between two languages and no longer be blocked. In reality, there are several ways to do this.
The first is located to the right of the Windows taskbar, at the bottom right of the screen. The first three letters of the keyboard language are displayed, here FRA. By clicking on it, the different programmed languages appear. All you have to do is click on the language you want, and voila, the keys change. The other method, even simpler than the first, is to use a keyboard shortcut to change the keyboard language on the fly. The shortcut is as follows: Windows key + Space bar. When you make this combination, you see the different languages available appear. Press Space successively to switch from one language to another.
There you go, we hope this has helped you, and that you will have a better day thanks to this tip. And see you soon for new Windows tips.
