    want to switch to IBM German keyboard, but dead keys doesn't work


    Hello,
    I want to switch to IBM German keyboard because the Caps Lock properties are more comfortable.

    I tried it, but dead keys doesn't work for and so on.

    Have you an idea how to fix it?

    Erh,

    I hestitate to respond because I don't understand what you mean by
    - because the Caps Lock properties are more comfortable [perhaps you are just referring to the layout of a particular keyboard you have rather than any Windows function?]
    - dead keys doesn't work

    I often type in German & French. I keep this file handy and normally just copy what I want from it or, if I am typing in MS Office Word or Outlook, I sometimes use the shortcuts mentioned.
    - Because I normally have Outlook open, I keep the guide in a pair of Outlook 'Notes' for convenience [German Note, French Note].
    - Where I have written, for example, Ctrl: then U/u what I mean is press the Ctrl key & and the : key at the same time then press either the u key or the U key

    Code:
    --- German ---
    These shortcuts work in Word & in Outlook Calendar, Emails, Contacts [description field only]
      Ctrl: then A/a
      Ctrl: then O/o
      Ctrl: then U/u
         Ctrl& then s
    
    --- French ---
         
     
         
        
       
    
         
    
    These shortcuts work in Word & in Outlook Calendar, Emails, Contacts [description field only]
      Ctrl' {on the @ key} then A/a
      Ctrl` {on the top-left triple key} then A/a
      Ctrl, then C/c

    Erhy,

    OK. Actually that has been the case with every keyboard layout I have known.
