The default language for Active@ Boot Disk is English. You may add an alternate language keyboard functional layout to give a file a descriptive name or when recording notes about changes made to the system.
A typical English keyboard layout (called QWERTY) may be suitable for many Latin-based languages. With the French keyboard layout (AZERTY) the key associations produce a different result on the screen.
You must be familiar with the different key associations to use a different language keyboard layout.
To add a keyboard layout:
- From the Active@ Boot Disk shell, click Start > Utilities > Add Keyboard Layout. The Add Keyboard Layout dialog box appears.
- Choose the radio button for the alternate keyboard layout that you want to use.
- Click Set. A short form for the current keyboard layout appears in the system tray area.
The alternate keyboard layout has been set.
To toggle between the default keyboard layout and
the alternate keyboard layout, press
Left ALT+SHIFT on the keyboard.
