How to Install and Use Foreign Keyboards
A video from Moses (laoshu505000) about how to install the Cyrillic keyboard on a Windows 8 system. He's a polyglot so it is interesting to see how people with multiple languages installed on their system can toggle between the different options.
When I first started to learn to type in Russian, I created what Moses calls a "map" and saved those images on my Flick account. You can find the images I created of the Russian keyboard here: Russian Keyboard Layout Image for Printing.
