Writing about web page http://www.theworldofstuff.com/dvorak/

I tried setting up my keyboard to act as Dvorak today after reading about why they're better than QWERTY (although this is disputed on other web sites).

I added US Dvorak, but since it doesn't have the £ sign and one of the keys is duplicated (standard US keyboards have 101 keys, UK have 102) I decided to edit it a bit to put the £ sign back in and change the duplicate key (# and ~) back to it's default (instead of \ and |).

The problem is after switching back and forth for a while Windows decided it doesn't really like switching! Sometimes the keymap used by Windows and other programs is different! I can press Win+R (QWERTY) then type and it comes out as Dvorak layout text! And other times is just refuses to change and then the language bar keyboard icon disappears!

I couldn't find any reason for this so I've uninstalled it for now. Having wasted the last three hours playing with this I'm now going back to the CS122 essay!
