    Question held down the alt key plus the enter key, what happened?

    Advertisement



    Hey everyone, I've had my pearl for a couple of months now and I love it. One question, I held down the alt key plus the enter key and some message came up about the "afrikaans" and then I clicked on the bottom option. What did I do and how do I undo it?

    Thanks

    I don't know, when I press those 2 buttons I get a English(U.K) option, English(U.S.) option, and Espanol option. I don't know what that is or how to fi it, someone should come along and know what it is. If you have anymore questions just ask! Welcome Pinstack, we hope you enjoy your time here!

    Did it change your language to afrikaans? If it did just press alt enter again and change back to English. Hope that helps

    Unfortunately the bottom option that I clicked on read "disable this shortcut" or something like that. I tried pressing alt+enter again but nothing comes up now.

    I think it has something to do with the language choice for everything. When you choose one of the languages it will probably changed the language to everything. I tried to get this menu but it won't pop up because i have deleted every language except english.

    So this might be what it is but I'm not sure.

    Hope this helps,

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ok, go to options then click on language. If you had changed any language preferences it will show up there. Just change it back to English or whatever you had before.

    back up your addressbook and reinstall the new os.... while you are doing that you might want to delete the different langauges you dont use. it'll save you some memory

    I also just discovered that if you want that alt+enter thing to work again, go to options, language, then at the bottom it will say "use input language shortcut. Make sure it says yes then below that it says "notify me" make sure that says yes as well. This will enable you to make the shortcut available again.when you use the alt+enter shortcut again, Make sure you don't release the alt button until you have the option selected that you want. Releasing the alt button will automatically choose whatever option you have highlighted and then close the shortcut.
