One of the simplest such action is to set up an English keyboard layout.
The keyboard is in its first embodiment, andIt was supposed to co-operation with computers. It is not difficult to guess that in the distant 1860 on the PC could not dream of even the most daring science fiction. However, at this time I lived editor of a Milwaukee, Christopher Sholes. It was he who introduced the first version of the keyboard as part of a typewriter. Further patent was sold to the company "Remington", hence the famous typewriters.
Few people know that the first letter rowkeyboard strictly corresponded alphabetically English, and no one thought about the layout QWERTYUIOP. Until it was found that on a typewriter keys too often sink due to close are the letters that have been used most extensively. As a result, Christopher had to consider such an option, in which the two letters would be extremely rare. So there was a layout that is familiar to PC users.

But it is better to return to the subject of the article. Over time, computers have spread around the world and appeared in Russia, and with it - Russian FYVAPROLDZHE layout, well-known to anyone who has a skill of touch typing.
There are many options, but they can be reduced to a few common settings for the layout.

It happens that the English language when working with a PC neededconstantly. Switching the above combination is easy to fill blisters on his fingers. Therefore it is possible to make English the Russian version of the operating system was the default. To do this, go to "Control Panel - Language and Regional Options - Language and keyboard - Change keyboard - and select" English (United States) "as the default language." It's simple! This example is valid for Windows 7 and XP, and for earlier systems.
And if you're handy with a mouse, just click in the lower right corner near the clock in the system tray icon and select RU as "English (United States)."
