  1. DEFAULT Keyboard with several languages installed


    I have installed several languages. I usually use ENGLSH, but when I turn on the computer it comes up with FRENCH as the default input language, and I have to change it even to sign in. How do I change the DEFAULT keyboard to English? (When I ask the automated assistant I only get the answer of how to switch keyboards, NOT how to change the DEFAULT keyboard).


    Thanks for any help.

    :)

  2. Language/Keyboard default

    Hi Sandra,

    You can try these steps to set up your preferred defaults:

    • Go to Settings and click Time & Language.
    • Click Region & Language.
    • Click on your default system language then, click Options.
    • Click Add a keyboard then choose your preferred keyboard language.
    • Remove the other keyboard language by choosing it then click Remove.

    Tell us if this works.

    Hello,

    You can configure your keyboard language by adding it on the default language set on the system. For instructions, follow these steps:

    • Open Settings.
    • Open Time & language.
    • Select Region & language.
    • Click on the default language, and click Options.
    • Select Add a keyboard, and select the language that you want to add.

    We'll wait for the outcome.

    Unable to set keyboard language as default differently from Windows 10 language

    I'm able to do that, but the problem is: I need the default language for the keyboard to be set to brazilian portuguese but everytime I log in, windows is enforcing the keyboard language to be the same as the used for display.

    I know I can press windows+space to switch languages, but I did not have to do it in the past, something changed with the latest patches.
