Whenever I type alt + 148 to get German o Umlaut, Internet goes back by one page, which means that if I\'m writing an e-mail, everything is lost. Is there a way to avoid this, and to easily create our beloved ö? (I don\'t use Outlook but a website.)


Greetings from snowy Italy!

Basta cambiare layout di tastiera Jan 9, 2003

Per impostare una lingua diversa dall\'italiano, devi aggiungerne una in Risorse del computer>Pannello di controllo>tastiera>lingua>aggiungi.

Poi con i due tasti di selezione che avrai impostato, puoi passare da una lingua all\'altra.

Per scrivere la √∂ devi premere il tasto √≤, la √§ il tasto √†, la √ľ il tasto √©, la √ü il tasto \'.



Ciao



Francesca

Activate Num Lock Jan 9, 2003

Martin,

I believe that what\'s happening to you is caused by not having activated the Num Lock key.



When you type ALT+148 you are in fact typing ALT+{end}{arrow left}{arrow up}. The result is that when you press the number 4 {arrow left} your browser goes to the previous page.



Check again and you will see!



Keep the Num Lock pressed when typing numbers and your problem will be solved.

Switch to german keyboard Jan 9, 2003

I assume you are using Windows XP with the possobility of switching the keyboard language, as you need this to type german ie. in Word. So when you type something in a website simply switch your keyboard to german. This should help both for IE and Netscape.



It works even for polish characters, so it will work for german too.



Regards

Jerzy

danke schööön! Jan 9, 2003

mille grazie Gianfranco! hai ragione! infatti su tutti i computers che usavo (ne abbiamo 20 in ufficio e 40 a scuola) il numlock era già attivato, ma questo qua è nuovo zecca!

grazie anche per i consigli con la tastiera, ma non fa per me perché scrivo in parecchie lingue.

buona sera da Udine dove sta nevicando come matto!

Martin
