Create your Own Keyboard Layout

Well I lived in Australia for 1 1/2 year and I got used to the English keyboard. Especially if you start programming you can see the advantage of the English keyboard over the German Keyboard Layout. Because with the German keyboard you need to press the shift button a lot to get to this special characters which are used in program languages all the time.
Anyway we use in German ÄÖÜ sometimes but you can not get it easily with the English keyboard layout. With the help of the Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator I could create my own Layout and it works like this. When you need to type an ÄÖÜ character you just simply press ALT+GR + the button where the character on German Keyboard is. It takes some time to get used it but it is much faster than press alt+shift each time to switch the language layout. So it is exact the same Keyboard layout as the international English one except of my special characters and I also removed the dead keys.
