My Windows keyboard layout with symbols
- Download my FSymbols keyboard package.
- Install it with "setup.exe".
- Right-click language panel and choose "Settings", or get to the same Language Preferances app via Windows' Control Panel.
- Inside "settings" move the newly-added keyboard up.
How to use
Just like you press [Shift] key to input "A" instead of "a", you can now use [AltGr] (right [Alt] key, or left [Alt] + [Ctrl] if you wish so) and [AltGr]+[Shift] to type more text characters and symbols. Here you can view what symbols will get typed. These images are also available inside the package.
Optional: Default layout
You can make your new layout default. If you'll do so, you won't have to switch layouts (Left Alt + Shift) every time you want to write symbols.
- Get into the the same settings dialog.
- Choose Advanced key settings.
In Default input language, choose your new custom layout.
- Apply changes.
- Optional: In Installed services choose your old keyboard layout.
Optional: Remove it.
Now, that you have set it as default you can type symbols from your keyboard in the most easy way. Enjoy it. ;)
