US Layout


Yep, mentioned up top. You can use software to move keys and what not. But for £14.99 it doesn't bother me personally. Each to their own, of course
I have this keyb, it is good quality espesh at this price but the two things that made me put it back in its box was down to the US layout. Those being the wrong shaped Enter key and the backslash/pipe key that should be between the Z and left shift is missing. Deal breakers for me. Not voted either way.

we have had plenty of US laptops and even the kids know where the keys are on them which correspond to the UK settings on the laptop, there are occasions though where you have to think where the special character keys are but most people dont even look at the keyboard anyway.

I bought this last week. Every time I hit the S key, it types a Z.

Presumably you can just set the keyboard as UK in your operating system and ignore the symbols on the key caps? (so despite being a US layout it'll behave like a UK keyboard)

I recall if you do that then there are certain keys you can’t access like backslash, # or £, I could be wrong but that’s why I’ve always avoided US format unless the price is spectacularly good.

all keys are there just have to find them and if you keep your keyboard in the operating system as UK you dont even need to do that.

Where is backslash on a US format keyboard in UK layout? Without resorting to alt+92 or anything like that.
Excellent deal. Thanks OP.

Personal experience with Aukey blue switches are that they are louder than Cherry MX blues if anyone cares about that.

Same place it’s on the UK hopefully next to the shift key. The key stay the same as a UK keyboard just they show the wrong key on the actual keyboard itself.

On a US keyboard, the left shift key is wider and backslash isn't there.

Out of curiosity - do you know what the US backslash key does if the keyboard is set to UK? I'm guessing nothing?
Good deal,

I am a bit picky on keyboard layouts - the only thing that puts me pff this is the half size enter key - however hard I try I cannot get used to it.Bargain though if you can cope with that.

It does the same thing. It is just that the US keyboard has that key in the top right instead of the bottom left. You could actually buy keyboard stickers from eBay or similar. I did that once with an old Arabic keyboard, changing it to UK using stickers which actually looked pretty good and lasted well!

Here are the actual differences:

To be honest when we had ours I just did without it the @ symbol worked though.

Well that’s the problem - someone said set the US format to UK in Windows and if you do that you have compromises, you won’t have backslash because of the wiring. If you set the US keyboard to US format, you can’t get £ or # I think because there is physically one less key on the keyboard so you need to use a combination to enter that missing key (whatever it is). That half height enter is also annoying.

That’s why I just get a UK keyboard now, even EU format is ok as it has enough keys. I guess US format is fine for gaming though, maybe that’s the important bit.

You still get all keys. If you set a US keyboard to uk it means that some keys are physically swapped in terms of position but they're all still there!

You don't get all keys, a US layout is only 104 keys - one less.

plewis00 is correct. I use a US keyboard with a UK keymap setting, but fortunately it has extra macro keys which I have one bound to backslash, otherwise it would be a right pain with that one less key.
