    Missing Keyboard Option in Time & Language? Help?

    So i'm trying to change my keyboard layout (trying to remove a hotkey that i use in game but pulls me out) but everytime i go in Time & Language there is no Keyboard option.

    Like it goes:


    Date & Time

    Region & Language


    With no "Keyboard" option available. What is wrong and how do i fix it or at least get to the keyboard settings?

    language options for keyboards


    There are several language options for your keyboard that you can choose from. Since it has disappeared on your end, you can add a keyboard layout then change it your preferred language. Here's how:

    • Click on the Start Menu. It's the Windows icon in the bottom left corner.

    • Go to Settings.

    • Select Time & language > Region & language.

    • Click on the language you wish to add a keyboard layout to.

    • Choose Options > Add a keyboard.

    • Click on the keyboard you want to add.

    Once added, you can now change it to your preferred language:

    • Press and hold the Windows key

    • Press spacebar.

    • Pressing spacebar multiple times will toggle through the list of keyboard layouts you have; the layout you currently have selected will always be highlighted.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Language/Keyboard default

    Hi Sandra,

    You can try these steps to set up your preferred defaults:

    • Go to Settings and click Time & Language.
    • Click Region & Language.
    • Click on your default system language then, click Options.
    • Click Add a keyboard then choose your preferred keyboard language.
    • Remove the other keyboard language by choosing it then click Remove.

    Tell us if this works.
