    German keyboard layout in Japanese Microsoft-IME


    Learning Japanese at the moment I want to learn to type in Japanese too. Although, I am very accustomed to the 'y'- and 'z'-key position to be like in the german layout, i.e. switched comparing it with the US layout. Whenever I want to write a character of the z- or y-series they get mixed up.Is there a way to just switch these two keys or rather change the whole layout in the IME-layout to the german one while maintaining the ability to change between scripts using the SHIFT/ALT/CTRL+CAPS LOCK key combinations?I do not want to "just deal with it" and just use the switched up y and z. This mig

    :)

    Japanese IME with German QWERTZ-Layout

    I am using Windows 10.

    Being german, my keyboard has the german QWERTZ layout.

    I want to write in Japanese, so I am using Microsoft-IME.

    I can set the Hardware Keyboard to english or japanese layout, but there is no other layout available.

    I don't see the reason why microsoft excluded every other existing layout.

    I tried using third-party IME, but those use the same configuration as Microsoft-IME.

    How can I set the hardware keyboard layout to standard german QWERTZ (or any other layout)?

    I can set the layout for other languages freely, why not for japanese?

    Japanese IME with German QWERTZ-Layout

    Thanks for the reply,

    I did add the input language japanese(日本語), as well as german(Deutsch (Deutschland)), english and french.

    In the options screen for japanese, I only have the option to:

    • download handwriting
    • further settings for speech recognition
    • change layout of hardware keyboard (only japanese and english keyboard available)
    • remove/add new keyboard (Microsoft-IME or third party IME)
    • configure Microsoft-IME
    Thus I assume the language package has already been intalled.

    In Region & language in the language list, there is also written that the language pack is installed for japanese.

    I am looking forward to your help.
