  1. Hyper-V wrong keyboard layout on 2nd connect

    I'm running an Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS Virtual Machine in Hyper-V and I connect to it using an enhanced session.
    The VM is created using the Hyper-V quick-create and everything is working as intended.

    When I connect to the VM session for the first time my keyboard layout is Danish and I can use special characters (e.g. æøå). However, every time I disconnect from the running session and reconnect again, my keyboard layout is no longer working - it is using English keyboard layout even though the Ubuntu keyboard layout is set to Danish.
    The only way I can get my Danish keyboard layout working again is by restarting the VM.

    Any help much appreciated Hyper-V wrong keyboard layout on 2nd connect :)

  2. Hyper V deativication

    Hi Geoffrey,

    Hyper-V lets you run an operating system or computer system as a virtual machine on Windows. Before proceeding in disabling
    Hyper-V, please create a backup of your files for security purposes.

    To disable Hyper-V, please follow the steps below:

    • On the Cortana search box, type Turn Windows Features on or off and press
    • Look for the Hyper-V folder.
    • Uncheck the tick-box next to the main Hyper-V folder and click
    • Restart your PC.

    Should you have further questions, please let us know.

  3. Wrong keyboard layout in login page after update to 1607


    Since the issue reoccurred after updating to anniversary update, I suggest you to reconfigure the QWERTY keyboard layout and check if the same issue persists. This is to check if the issue is with Windows 10 1607 update.

    I suggest you to follow the steps below to configure the keyboard layout:

    • Open Settings and click on Time and Language.
    • Click on Region and Language.
    • Add the Country and click on add a language and select the language of your choice.
    • This will take time to download the pack.
    • Once this is done, Press Windows key + Space and press Space key to choose the keyboard layout.
    Hope it helps. Revert to us with the results, will be glad to assist you.

    Thank you.

    Where is the Hyper V Manager, How to I start it ?

    I am trying to setup an XP virtual Machine on Windows 10 Pro.

    I followed the steps in Neil Peterson article of 5/9/2016.

    System Requirements - done - ok

    Install Hyper-V - done - ok

    Create a Virtual Switch - skip

    Create a Virtual Machine

    Create a Virtual Machine with Hyper-V Manager

    These steps walk through how to manually create a virtual machine and deploy an operating system to this virtual machine.

    • In Hyper-V Manager, click Action > New >
      Virtual Machine
      to bring up the New

    Uhhhhhhhhh - this step obviously implies one knows

    1) Where the Hyper-V Manager is

    2) How to start the Hyper-V Manager

    Isn't that odd ?
