Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

You may be able to simply switch it in the software.

That won't change the key-caps look, when you look at the keyboard, though.

Would you be meaning, to replace the keyboard so the key-caps look right for the US-and-Canadian layout?

Correct - I need US layoutJust wondering if you had an idea how much I should pay for this?

As for changing the keyboard to a US Layout - do you also want the keyboard to have the right legend on the physical key caps? or is that no object?
