    international keyboard


    After reading the MANY other posts about users having no luck using the Windows 10 version of the international keyboard and MANY of those posts not having been responded to, I found different places where we're told to Add a Keyboard and then hit the Windows key and space bar at the same time. But what's that supposed to do for me? It only pops up the typical menu options and I see nothing new. Please help. Like so many others, I just want to be able to type some documents, send emails, make FB posts, etc. in Spanish, and cannot figure out how to do it, though in the past with Windows 7, I had no problems.

    :)

  2. US International Keyboard for Windows 10

    Hello,

    There is a way to enable the US International Keyboard. You have to go to Settings > Time and Language > Region and Language. Under Languages, if you click English, there should be a button that says "options." If you click on that, it should show you a
    list of keyboards in English. If you click "Add a keyboard," a menu should appear with a list of keyboards. "United States - International" should be one of them.

    The keyboard works differently from before. If you are using the US International Keyboard for Windows 10, to get é, all you have to do is press ' + e, one after the other, and the character should appear. There is a list of how to get characters on this
    keyboard: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us...ates-international-keyboard-layout-in-windows,
    under "Creating International Characters." I know it says that Windows 10 is not listed as one of the softwares that run this keyboard, but it works on mine, and I have Windows 10.

    Hope this helps!

    Disabling laptop keyboard

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    As per the description. Let me help you in resolving the issue.

    I suggest you follow the steps below and check if that helps:

    • Press Windows + X and select
      Device Manager
      from the list.
    • Find Keyboards in the list of devices and click the arrow to expand it.
    • Right-click on the internal keyboard and click Disable. If there is no Disable option listed, click
      Uninstall.
    • Click File>Exit. Your laptop’s internal keyboard should now be disabled.
    Note: If you had to choose Uninstall instead of Disable in step 4, the keyboard will be automatically detected and re-installed if you ever have the Device Manager scan for new hardware for some reason. If that happens you’ll need to repeat this procedure
    in order to uninstall it again.

    Hope the information helps. Please let us know if the issue persist and we will be happy to assist you further.
