    :) Hi there,

    I live in the UK, and I'm currently on holiday in the US. Everything is so much much cheaper over here, so I wanted to buy some stuff.

    I have seen a good deal on a wireless keyboard and mouse. Will this work on my computer at home?
    I realise some of the keys will be different, as American keyboards have a different lay-out..... but will it actually work with my UK PC?


    Also will PC games and software I buy over here work on my UK PC?
    What about USB memory sticks and such?

    thanks.

    How do I change my PC to recognise I'm using an American Keyboard, not a UK one?
    Its still typing the UK symbols.

    In the Control Panel - go to Regional Settings, and select the 'Language' tab. Here you can specify which keyboard layout/language you wish to use.
