    Keyboard keeps changing from my default!


    I installed windows 10 and set English (UK) as my main display languaje.

    However, as I live in Spain, my keyboard is spanish.

    I even use Spanish locale so my dates and currencies are displayed the way they are in spain.

    Because I use Eng language, I am forced to have installed Eng keyboard, there's no way (that I know of) to get rid of it.

    The result?: Sometimes my keyboard changes from Spanish to English for no apparent reason, and I find myself having to select the correct keyboard over and over again.

    I can't find the reason why this happens but the issue has been there forever. It's irritating as hell because you never know when is it going to change.

    It drives me nuts, it does not make sense to change keyboards like that: I can get a person using both english and chinese input methods, but who shifts hardware keyboard to a different locale one on the go?

    Is there any way to force windows to use only one single keyboard?

    This keeps happening since the first Windows 10 version.

    :)
     

  2. Change How Folders Open By Default (My laptop keeps using CMD)

    Hi,

    Sorry for the delayed response. I suggest you to set File Explorer as the Default program and check if that helps. To do this, refer the steps given below.

    • Open Control Panel.
    • Search for Default Programs.
    • Go to Default Programs.
    • Look for File Explorer towards the left pane and select it.
    • Set this as default program and apply changes.
    • Check if the issue persists.

    Hope this helps.
