I don't know why it just doesn't come set up that way. It doesn't appear to affect anything else. And that was always a peeve of mine not being able to spell them correctly. You can also hold down shift + alt and type a number code, but you can only use the keypad that way and my laptop doesn't have a keypad.
Interesting things you find out about these computers...
Still not working for me!

I want to know how to get my cent sign back. I have never used a caret sign on a keyboard. Whoever changed it should be held up to extreme ridicule or something. I used the cent sign all the time. $.99 just doesn't say it for me, nor does 99 cent. At least on typewriters, you could put a slash through a c if it wasn't at shift 6.

Back to cooking. Alix's Parmesan Chicken is almost done. Of course there had to be something to change. I really didn't want to, but there was some bacon fat in the pan and chicken drippings from the breast I baked for chicken salad, so I used those instead of butter, but all else is as written. Oops, there goes the timer.

Okay, try this. While holding down your alt key, type on the number pad 0162 and then release the alt key. A ¢ sign should appear.

This ONLY works on the number pad.

¢ yep. I still want the option of changing out the caret, but haven't been able to find if there is a way. It really irks me that someone would make a change like that. The only time I have ever used a caret is when writing long hand to add something. Never when typing.

Sadly, the chicken didn't come out so good. I don't know why. It may just be me or the particular thigh I was eating. I made long grain & wild rice which should have been delicious with it, but it tasted chalky. I haven't been having good luck with bread crumbs lately so I will just have to get some corn flakes. My last several attempts using bread crumbs were not up to par.

I've found they carry wild rice at Walmart, and although it's expensive, mixed with plain rice I should be able to come up with a good recipe. This time I used Rice A Roni brand. Yuk. I remember Uncle Ben's as being good, but I'd rather make my own. Starting a thread for that now.
