So my windows 7 beta period ran out. Time to get back to what I usually do. :)
So after I install the OS, and all the sundry programs and applications I need, and get back to my Facebook, I realise something’s seriously amiss. Whenever I try to type my favourite emoticon, I couldn’t really send all of it at once. A but if trial and error made me realise that I had to press a spacebar, or any other key after the ^ to make it appear. So going the way I usually type, my emoticons got sent as “ ^_ ” Problematic, right?
After a *lot* of looking around, I figure it out.
Go to Region and language >> Keyboard and Language
Select “US” as your only keyboard
Now, go into Advanced Key Settings.
There, disable the key sequence to switch between languages.
It should be done. Enjoy entering the character ^ without pressing space or any other key all the time.
