    Keyboard layout keep changing to American QWERTY


    My keyboard has a German layout. That's how it should be. Windows however keeps changing, since I reset my PC, the layout to American QWERTY instead of the standard German QWERTZ layout. I set Windows up knowing that I want to use the German layout. It's the only layout registered on this PC. I know I've been using the English language pack but that shouldn't affect the keyboard since I used it before my reset too and I had no problems there.
    I also tried left-alt + left-shift but that changes nothing (probably because I only have one keyboard layout)

    Any ideas on how I may fix this?

    :)

  2. Keyboard layout change

    Hi Jan,

    The Czech keyboard that is included in Windows Phone 8/8.1 is QWERTZ layout, not QWERTY. This is a common request and I suggest that you add your phone to the

    User Voice item for this request
    . Microsoft uses the User Voice site to solicit suggestions and feature requests for their products.

  3. Keyboard Layout not changing

    Hi

    I have created a profile for my son (child account) and am having issues with getting the keyboard set to Engish-UK.

    When I log into his account on Win 10

    • I get a number of Visual C++ errors but can't see the program causing it
    • Subsequently the keyboard layout is stuck on American
    • I try to change to UK by removing the American language pack and setting overrides in the Advanced settings and control panel. However, the American pack continues to stay and all the changes get reverted back to original
    • For the case of simplicity I have made him an Administrator on my machine though originally he was a Standard User
    When I or my wife login to this machine there is no issue with keyboard layouts and we do not show the American language pack as existing on this machine. The other thing to add is that his Windows login user id is NOT a Microsoft email address but something
    else (Google Custom Domain).

    Appreciate if anyone has any ideas on this?

    Cheers

    Keyboard layout change

    I would like to buy Nokia Lumia 730. Today I was inspect this phone at local store and a have one question.

    Is it possible to change keyboard layout at Windows phone 8.1?

    I am IT specialist and on desktop I use EN keyboard and Czech keyboard with layout QWERTY. Standard Czech layout is QWERTZ (changed Z and Y).

    Nokia has Czech layout QWERTZ. Can I change it to Czech QWERTY? Windows 8.1 should do it, but on Windows Phone 8.1 I did not find this option.
