How do I toggle between keyboard layouts

Steps for setting up a keystroke macro behind F12 to toggle keyboard layouts, and using KYBDSYNC to automatically update My-T-Soft

My-T-Soft used as an example

( 1) You will need to extract Developer's Kit (Install Developer's Kit Icon in Program Group) to get to the KEYBOARD\KYBDSYNC.EXE and DEVKIT\SDSTRMTS.EXE

( 2) Use the KYBDSYNC (just run EXE directly from Windows Explorer) - this will tie My-T-Soft display to current keyboard layout selected in Windows. You can run this in the Windows StartUp group to make it always available if required.

( 3) Run Windows Control Panel and select the Keyboard icon. Click on Language Tab and verify the 2 language layouts desired are available. Your Windows CD may be required if you need to add a new layout.

( 4) Copy the DEVKIT\SDSTRMTS.EXE to the MYTSOFT folder (e.g. to C:\WINDOWS\MYTSOFT from C:\WINDOWS\MYTSOFT\DEVKIT)

( 5) Use F12 or one of the other function keys as the "trigger" to toggle keyboard layouts

( 6) Go to My-T-Soft Setup | Configuration | Key Options

( 7) Select F12, Disable Keystroke, Enable Key EXE

( 8) Browse and select SDSTRMTS.EXE

( 9) Add command line, e.g. "...\SDSTRMTS.EXE [Alt-Down][Shift-Down][Shift-Up][Alt-Up]"

(10) Now when F12 is clicked, the keyboard will toggle - with KeyboardSync running (KYBDSYNC.EXE), the display will toggle
