  1. Can't change keyboard language


    I can't fit it all in the title, let me explain what I'm looking for exactly:

    My language pack is fully installed, windows is updated. I'm not trying to Add a language, I'm trying to Add a Keyboard language. The languages I'm looking for are not listed there, but they are listed in Add a language section.

    The languages I want to add to my keyboard so that I can swap between them are: Georgian, Russian. I have English (US) set as main and I have already added Swedish (SV).

    I looked this up on google but it wasn't clear enough, some people had a specific issue that they solved, some had some other issues that weren't related to me. Basically, I need help with this cause I can't figure it out myself.

    Windows 8.1 update changed the language, can't change back

    Maybe, these will help... it seems it is a common enough problem.

    Language packs are no longer available after you upgrade to Windows 8.1

    And, sort of the same here --> Add a language or keyboard

    Quote from above MS web page:

    Spoiler Download and install language packs
    You'll need to download the language pack if you want to make a language your Windows display language (that's the language you see most often in Windows and apps).
    • Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, tap Settings, and then tap Change PC settings.
      (If you're using a mouse, point to the lower-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer up, click Settings, and then click Change PC settings.)
    • Tap or click Time and language, and then tap or click Region and language.
    • Tap or click a language that says Language pack available underneath, and then tap or click Options.
    • Tap or click Download. The download process might take a while, depending on your PC and the size of the language pack.
      If you want to make this your display language, see the next section "Change your Windows display language".
    Change your Windows display language
    To change your Windows display language (that's the language you see most often in Windows and apps), first add a language, download and install the language pack, and then follow these steps.
    • Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, tap Settings, and then tap Change PC settings.
      (If you're using a mouse, point to the lower-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer up, click Settings, and then click Change PC settings.)
    • Tap or click Time and language, and then tap or click Region and language.
    • Tap or click the language that you want to set as your display language.
    • Tap or click Set as primary to move the language to the top of the list. If the language can become your Windows display language, you'll see Will be display language after next sign-in appear under the language.
    • Sign out and then sign back in to finish.
    And here is some more info --> Add Language Packs to Windows

    Windows 10 keyboard language keeps changing

    Great! I found it by searching Input method as you suggested (full path is Settings -> Typing -> Advanced keyboard settings).
    - I've set "Override for default input language" to "French (Canada)" instead of "Use language list".
    - "Let me use a different input method for each app" was already unchecked
    - I've disabled the key sequence to switch between input languages in (Language bar options -> Advanced key settings)

    I hope it did the trick, I'll mark this as solved if the keyboard does not change back by tomorrow.

    Thank you!

    Keyboard language keeps changing

    Hello Charlie,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    1. Since when are you facing this issue?
    2. Have you installed Spanish Keyboard in your desktop?


    You can follow the steps to fix the issue.



    Method 1:



    Removing other keyboard layouts.



    1. Go to Settings > Time & Language >
      Region & Language.
    2. Click on Spanish
      and Click on Remove.
    3. Now add the Spanish language again from
      Region & Language under
      Settings.


    Also, if you are using an older build of Windows 10, you can refer to the suggestions by

    Monica Cam
    dated 10th October 2016.



    Method 2:



    Changing the language preference to English only.



    1. Go to Settings > Devices >
      Typing.
    2. Under More keyboard settings click on
      Advanced keyboard settings.
    3. Now under Override for default input method select
      English.
    4. Restart the computer.


    Hope it helps.
