84. 00:04:52:06 / 00:04:59:12 - we need to do is actually create this
85. 00:04:55:93 / 00:05:03:09 - enable compatibility keyword which is a
86. 00:04:59:12 / 00:05:07:75 - D word again the same set up okay
87. 00:05:03:09 / 00:05:10:69 - new D word okay once you have the D word
88. 00:05:07:75 / 00:05:13:38 - then give it the name exactly as it's
89. 00:05:10:69 / 00:05:17:30 - over here and then set the value to
90. 00:05:13:38 / 00:05:19:27 - basically one okay keyboard layout
91. 00:05:17:30 / 00:05:21:19 - preference depending on which keyboard
92. 00:05:19:27 / 00:05:23:30 - you want to start up when you start your
93. 00:05:21:19 / 00:05:27:65 - computer you can have it starting up
94. 00:05:23:30 / 00:05:29:65 - with the normal one or the pen or that
95. 00:05:27:64 / 00:05:32:32 - okay and the different numbers starting
96. 00:05:29:65 / 00:05:35:71 - from zero you can go zero one two three
97. 00:05:32:32 / 00:05:37:93 - etc okay simplest way is obviously just
98. 00:05:35:71 / 00:05:41:95 - to click on it okay
99. 00:05:37:93 / 00:05:44:71 - click yes like yes and it installs it
100. 00:05:41:95 / 00:05:45:97 - okay if you have any worries about
101. 00:05:44:71 / 00:05:47:99 - what's actually in the file you can
102. 00:05:45:97 / 00:05:50:32 - always right-click on it and click Edit
103. 00:05:47:99 / 00:05:52:33 - and you'll see there I guess so that
104. 00:05:50:32 / 00:05:56:00 - there should be no changes between those
105. 00:05:52:33 / 00:05:59:50 - two files okay hopefully this helps um
