Keyboard Language Layouts

To familiarize yourself with a new keyboard, review it in Skeleton Key Editor before using it. Please see "Language Layouts" in the Keyboards section of Skeleton Key Help for more information about these keyboards and preparing Skeleton Key and Windows to use them. It is very important that while you view or edit a language keyboard in Skeleton Key Editor, Windows uses the same keyboard language layout that will be used when Skeleton Key uses the keyboard.
