Re: The First World Problem Thread

After 5 pages, none of the posts has reached the quality of a regular first world problem in the complaints corner. Making up first world problems just does not work.

Pah - that is nothing!

At work I have a German keyboard which I use as an English one. At home I have an American one - which is used as is - otherwise it will bring its kind of keyboardness to every other keyboard.

That means I have the @ in 3 different locations!

(And don't get me started on the work security - as this defaults to German - and so the @ moves)

What? I love the Swiss keyboard. All those right at your fingertips, and all the characters moved around so you have to hit alt gr to get a blessed @ symbol, and a $ right next to the carriage return is so handy.

For me, the Swiss keyboard is the best. The US keyboard would have been the best if it had the accents, , umlaut, , signs...

The French AZERTY keyboard is one of the worst: very unfriendly layout:

M next to L, reversed numbers / signs (you have to press shift to enter a number)...

Re: The First World Problem Thread

You may have a look at the United States-International Keyboard layout.



Quote:
Since the standard US keyboard layout in Microsoft Windows offers no way of inputting any sort of diacritic or accent, this makes it unsuitable for all but a handful of languages unless the US International layout is used. The US International layout changes the `, ~, ^, " (for ), and ' (for ) keys into dead keys for producing accented characters. The US International layout also uses the right alt (AltGr) as a modifier to enter special characters. Although there is no UK International layout on Windows, XP SP2 and above provide a UK Extended layout which, if activated, will allow the user to enter a wide variety of diacritics (such as grave accents) which are not accommodated by the standard UK layout.
Source Wikipedia.

PS: You do not have to physically own this keyboard to use it. It is just a setting in your operating system.
