    Swiss German 'QWERTZ' keyboard - Y and Z keys need to swap


    Hi all,

    I'm currently teaching English and Computer skills for an NGO in Myanmar (formerly known as Burma).

    I'm using a donated Toshiba Portege R830 laptop that appears to have been originated from Switzerland.

    When I arrived here the keyboard was programmed completely wrong, however I have managed to resolve this by changing the Keyboard language to Swiss German (QWERTZ) - this has successfully alligned all of the keys to the correct value. Except

    Y and Z are reversed and I cannot find any way of swapping them! I've read a few forums online, including on this website and it appears that most Swiss German keyboards are QWERTZ, however this one I'm using is a QWERTY.

    Does anyone know what language/keyboard setting I need to find?

    Thanks so much.

    Hi there
    add the keyboard to the input language

    You can use any keyboard layout you like with any language combination.

    For example

    Icelandic windows with UK keyboard etc
