German keyboard on Chromebox

3056 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  katana
I plan to use by Chromebox at an apartment in Germany with a German keyboard.
In the US, I use a Chrome on a laptop with an US keyboard.
I am not able to get the Chromebox to recognize the German keyboard. (I can select it in 'Settings', but it has no effect.)

I saw someone mentioning that Chrome may replicate the setting from my original (US) account. That would explain things, but it would be hard to believe.

Can someone enlighten me?

Best regards, Heinz

Go to chrome://settings/languages
A window will open, Below "languages" click "Add", add the German language, after that click "German Keyboard" on Input Methods.
You should be able now to switch between US and German keyboards using the "alt-shift" combination.
