    Keyboard settings not working on user accounts


    This problem is driving me crazy. I am running a laptop with a French keyboard layout, with Windows set on British English. For my admin account this works fine - there is an English and French input method available in the language settings in Control Panel (and I can even switch to an English keyboard layout, if I want, with the language settings 'button' in the righthand side of the task bar).
    I would like to set up a user account for my son, which I have done, but it opens up with an English keyboard layout. I go into the language settings, but only the English keyboard is available as an input method. I add the French keyboard, but I cannot switch to this keyboard - there is no language button in the task bar and windows+space doesn't do anything. I've even tried deleting the English keyboard layout to leave just the French. The language settings now show only the French keyboard, but Windows still stubbornly insists on staying with the English layout! What do I have to do to get the User Account to work with the French keyboard?

    Any help would be gratefully welcome.

    :)

    At one of my user accounts the keyboard stop working after login at 4 different computers

    At one of my user accounts the keyboard stop working after login at 4 different computers.

    Other user accounts on the same computers works just fine.

    All accounts are grounded on Microsoft e-mail accounts.

    When I started my fourth computer I have not used for month and login on the failing user account the keybord first worked, but then I did have a message to log in my account, then the keyboard did stop.

    What setting do i need to change in the failing account?
