Keyboard layout
The default keyboard layout in Zorin OS 10 is English US. If you want to switch it or add another layout, you need to select the Text Entry element in the System Settings panel.

The process of adding layout is very simple. The list of active layouts is in the left part of the window. You can add, remove or change the order of them. The right part of the window allows you to change the keyboard hotkey. You simply click the relevant field and then press the desired hotkey, for example Ctrl-Shift.

You can delete the Caps Lock key too. It is under the Options button in Keyboard layout configuration window. There are also a lot of other single-key options there, just like back in Ubuntu 10.04 days.

There is an icon on the panel from the very start that shows the current layout. Right or left click on that icon calls up a menu with few elements, like switch the layout, show character map or go to the text entry settings. Unfortunately, none of them actually works with the right-click. They work with the left click although.

As I've touched the keyboard, let me touch touchpad here too. It works fine, but... By default, Zorin OS 10 uses two-finger scrolling. If you prefer an "classic" way of one-finger scrolling at the edge of the touchpad, you need to change that setting in the Mouse and Touchpad section of Settings panel.

so when it is NOT playing what exactly is it VCL actually doing?
two: the best way to see errors is if you have one, open a terminal then type, vlc in the command line then hit enter, you'll see any errors and all messages in the terminal. post any errors and warnings you see.

If VLC opens up then use its menu to open your movie than see what it does. Post the results of that too.
