UK extended keyboard (backquote acting as a dead key for grave accent)

Image from store UK extended
Description from store This extension provides a UK extended keyboard layout in Chrome OS. How to enable: after installing the extension, head over to chrome://settings/languages then add English (UK), and check the "UK extended" option. If the option does not show up, sign out once and retry the procedure. Switch keyboard layouts with Alt+Shift until you hit the UK extended keyboard (symbol: EN*). By installing this item, you agree to the Google Terms of Service and Privacy Policy at https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/. Known issue: if this stopped working after updating to M36 please see crbug.com/397143 for a workaround (Chrome OS 37+ should not be affected) V1.1: fixed the "not working as advertised issue" (the internal name of the key changed in Chrome OS)

  • (2022-09-20) Mark Wightman: Anyone know how to type a macron with this extension? Is there a full guide to it anywhere?
  • (2021-04-15) System64MC: It doesn't seem to work, it adds correctly but when I add it, it doesn't show up in the keyboards list.
  • (2020-07-27) good
  • (2020-07-21) Giovanni Casalini: it works
  • (2020-07-02) R F Kearns: It also does circumflex, umlaut, tilde and a bunch more. None of which is documented. Why do we have to depend on Wikipedia (QWERTY, United Kingdom, Chrome OS) for such essential information?
  • (2019-03-07) It was ok
  • (2019-01-11) Ferdinando Grande: Funziona perfettamente! Sui Chromebook è l'unico modo esistente per poter scrivere facilmente in italiano quando si ha a disposizione una tastiera UK e non si vuole cambiare layout con quello italiano per non creare confusione, o impazzire con le password...
  • (2018-07-10) Ning Cao: good
  • (2017-09-27) Mohamed Janahi: its good to try it
  • (2017-02-08) monty marks: can't get rid of it
  • (2016-01-25) Nicolò: i don´t see the option in the layout list
  • (2015-01-09) Jim Avery: This extension does indeed allow you to use backquote to type characters with a grave accent, however I need to type an ñ (I'm learning Spanish) and to do that I still have to switch to the US International keyboard. Can we not, please, have a UK international keyboard that gives us the same flexibility as the US one?
  • (2014-07-29) Claudia De Sanctis Y: First time alright. After two days doesn't work anymore. Chromebook is the same, nothing changed. Please fix it 'cause italian people really need it!
  • (2014-07-15) Antonia Cassoli: It works but its supposed to start as default, instead of switch on at every access!
  • (2014-06-23) Funziona, ma sarebbe meglio si potesse impostare come layout predefinito e non essere obbligati a fare uno swich ad ogni login. Unico vero problema sta nel fatto che possa essere usata solo dall'utente SuperUser, un utente User non può accedervi... sistemate e darò 5 stelle.
  • (2014-06-23) Paolo Chiodini: Ok, funziona.
  • (2014-06-18) Kenji Baheux: V1.1 fixed the backquote key not working as advertised issue. Sincere apologies for the inconvenience.
  • (2014-03-06) Sérgio Gomes: This extension is not currently working with either the beta or developer channels of ChromeOS.
  • (2014-03-04) Edward Jones: The UK extended keyboard function of typing grave accents doesn't work with this keyboard. It isn't any different from the standard UK keyboard on chrome.
