It's totally unclear what you want: buy such a keyboard, sell it, find a driver, study the details of the lay-out, ...

Anyway, without knowing or mentioning the exact model of the laptop for which the keyboard is intended, it's impossible to buy or sell it. So it's even unclear why you link to a picture from a seller.

Thank you for your answer,

Actually the laptop is a thinkpad T450S and it comes with a german azerty keyboard, picture posted to show the layout of this kind of keyboard not for buying nore selling Happy

The probleme is that on windows 8.1 there is no such layout, im using for the moment a french azerty layout whitch im partially smililar to the german azerty one but iam looking for the appropriate layout.

Picture of my of language control panel you can see french and german language. In the sub menu of the german language all what you can find is the german qwerty layout.

If anybody should have it, it's Lenovo, since they made that laptop. As far as I know, it's the only one of its kind. What does Lenovo customer service in Germany say about it? This is their contact page: http://www.lenovo.com/contact/de/de/ .

If no luck, consider using a KEY REMAPPER (google that) to tell Windows about this special keyboard.
