    Cannot remove Keyboard layout indefinitely


    Hi,

    I have 2 language packs installed Hebrew (only keyboard layout needed) and US-English (for all the other thing i.e UI ,keyboard ,speech, handwriting etc...)

    For some reason Windows insists on installing me a 3rd keyboard layout called "United States - International"
    Which causes me problems in switching between keyboard layouts.
    Whats bizarre here that this keyboard layout is not installed the explicitly (see the picture only "US-QWERTY" is there)

    I did a workaround by re-installing it (ENG-INTL) ,removing it and bang I was left only with 2 keyboard layouts (ENG,עבר) which is exactly what I want and need.

    The problem though is that after a restart these settings are returning to their previous state.

    Is there a way to prevent that i.e to stay with only 2 QWERTY keyboard layouts English and Hebrew ?

    Hi,

    It is possible that you need to configure your keyboard layout that is why you still see it in the list even you already remove it. To address your issue, we suggest that you follow the steps on this

    thread
    provided by DikkeryDok last October 27, 2017 to remove the specific keyboard layout you are referring to.

    how to remove keyboard layout on Windows 10?

    Hi Eric,



    We regret the inconvenience caused.



    The above issue might occur due to the following reasons:

    • Country & Region settings not enabling you to delete the keyboard language set on the PC.
    • Not choosing appropriate default keyboard layout.


    Before we assist you further, I would like to ask you a few questions:

    • Did you try removing the keyboard layouts from Settings page?
    • If yes, does the issue persists even after removing the keyboard layout?


    By removing the Keyboard layout from system Settings page, the language will be removed from the PC. However, if needed, you can download the same from system
    Settings page and check if the changes made are effective.



    You can remove the keyboard layout either from system Settings page or
    Control panel. Follow either of the steps below to remove the keyboard layout and check if the issue is resolved.



    Step 1: System Settings window.



    • Press Windows logo + I keys on the keyboard to open
      Settings
      page.
    • Click on Time & language from the options and select
      Region & language
      from the left side panel of the window.
    • Click on the keyboard language you want to remove under Languages and click on
      Remove.
    • Close the window and check if the changes are effective.


    Step 2: Control panel.



    • Press Windows logo + X keys on the keyboard and click on
      Control panel from the context menu.
    • Click on View by option located at the top right corner of the window and select
      Large icons from the dropdown bar.
    • From the panel, click on Language.
    • Under Change your language preferences click on the keyboard layout to remove and click on the
      Remove button which will now be available to use.
    • Close the window and check if the changes are effective.


    Write to us with the status of the issue on the keyboard layout language removed from the PC for further assistance. Your reply is most important for us to ensure we assist you accordingly.



    Thank you.

    Cannot remove Keyboard Layout

    I downloaded a keyboard layout to be able to type runic characters using my keyboard because I am a nerd. Now I want to remove the layout because I'm not using it but when I go to language preferences,
    click English, options, "Runic-Common Germanic Futhark (BabelStone), and remove, the name goes away on the keyboard list but when I go to change my keyboard it still is on the list. How can I get rid of it for good? This is on windows 10
