J, Q, S, V and Z are not present in your post.Computer out of commission is my worst nightmare.Hurry back.
you can go to accessories-->system tools-->character map and copy and paste whatever you need from there :) I went through this nightmare with my laptop. I lasted a few months without an "a" a ":/;" and a few other keys before it finally stopped connecting to the internet and I gave up and picked out a new laptop!
Happy to announce that we have a new keyboard in place! I teach downtown on Wednesdays and I swung by a computer place and bought a new one. New rule, Rachel is not allowed to drink next to the computer. If I do, it must be Wednesday! Agree with you Jim, broken computer is a nightmare! But now I have a new nightmare, a Brazilian keyboard. It´s totally messing up my typing. Oh well.It was S btw. Well, S and backspace
Brazilian keyboard is awful. Other than the character map, you could also use the on screen keyboard (osk - start/run/type "osk" then OK).
I tried the on screen keyboard but it takes away the typing. I´m fastest at that but this damn keyboard messes up my punctuation! OH well, I´ll get used to it. Daniel copied and pasted the S for me when it first happened but I said screw it. I was going downtown anyway. Might as well buy a new one. First buy on my trip home will be an American one Ç)... see what I mean!
I see what you mean... ÇP
