  1. keyboard functions changed after most recent Windows Update


    Prior to the June 27th Windows update, my function keys worked with their primary function being the "big" image on them: from left to right dimmer, brighter, play/pause, mute, vol down, vol up, backlight keys, PrtScn, Home, End, PgUp, PgDn. Then IF I pushed the "Fn" key they would act as the function keys: F1, F2, F3, F4, F5, F6, F7, F8, F9, F10, F11, F12.


    SINCE the June 27th update, it has been the opposite with the primary function of those keys being the "F" function F1-F12, and then if I hold "Ctrl" they act as the image printed on them.


    THIS IS FRUSTRATING! have used my new Microsoft Surface Book 2 13.5" i7 for 3 or 4 month and have loved just hitting "home" to go to the start of a line, or "end" to go to the end, unlike my old Surface Pro 3, where I had to hit the "Fn" key first to get any of those actions. I got really used to the direct use of those keys for those uses.


    Is there something I can do to reverse this?


    thanks in advance for anything you can do to bring this "normal" back to the "normal" I liked.

    :)

    Windows 8.1 update changed the language, can't change back

    Maybe, these will help... it seems it is a common enough problem.

    Language packs are no longer available after you upgrade to Windows 8.1

    And, sort of the same here --> Add a language or keyboard

    Quote from above MS web page:

    Spoiler Download and install language packs
    You'll need to download the language pack if you want to make a language your Windows display language (that's the language you see most often in Windows and apps).
    • Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, tap Settings, and then tap Change PC settings.
      (If you're using a mouse, point to the lower-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer up, click Settings, and then click Change PC settings.)
    • Tap or click Time and language, and then tap or click Region and language.
    • Tap or click a language that says Language pack available underneath, and then tap or click Options.
    • Tap or click Download. The download process might take a while, depending on your PC and the size of the language pack.
      If you want to make this your display language, see the next section "Change your Windows display language".
    Change your Windows display language
    To change your Windows display language (that's the language you see most often in Windows and apps), first add a language, download and install the language pack, and then follow these steps.
    • Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, tap Settings, and then tap Change PC settings.
      (If you're using a mouse, point to the lower-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer up, click Settings, and then click Change PC settings.)
    • Tap or click Time and language, and then tap or click Region and language.
    • Tap or click the language that you want to set as your display language.
    • Tap or click Set as primary to move the language to the top of the list. If the language can become your Windows display language, you'll see Will be display language after next sign-in appear under the language.
    • Sign out and then sign back in to finish.
    And here is some more info --> Add Language Packs to Windows
