  2. How to convert a German Windows, German keyboard to an English Windows with Danish keyboard

    Hi

    Welcome to Microsoft community.

    Yes, you can convert your PC from German to English and also change the keyboard layout to Danish. Here are the steps:

    1. Change the Display Language:
      • Go to Settings > Time & Language > Language.
      • Under "Preferred languages", click on "Add a language".
      • Search for "English (United States)" or whichever version of English you prefer, and add it.
      • Click on the English language option you just added and select "Set as default".
      • Windows might need to download a language pack to complete this change, which it will do automatically. You will need to restart your computer to apply these changes fully.
    2. Change the System Locale:
      • Go to Control Panel > Clock, Language, and Region > Region.
      • Go to the "Administrative" tab and click on "Change system locale".
      • Choose "English (United States)" or your preferred version of English and click "OK". You'll need to restart your computer to apply these changes.
    3. Change the Keyboard Layout:
      • Go to Settings > Time & Language > Language.
      • Under "Preferred languages", click on English and then "Options".
      • Under "Keyboards", click on "Add a keyboard".
      • Search for the Danish keyboard layout and add it.
      • You can remove the German keyboard layout by clicking on it and then "Remove".
    Regarding the physical keyboard, it's not necessary to buy a new one. The keyboard layout settings in Windows determine which characters are entered when you press keys on your keyboard, not the physical keyboard itself. However, if you find it confusing to use a Danish layout with a German physical keyboard (since the keys won't match the characters they produce), you might consider getting a Danish keyboard or keyboard stickers.

    Please let me know if you need any further assistance. Thank you.

    Best regards

  3. Change keyboard lanuage layout

    I had a similar problem, except that I have a Swiss German keyboard but work in English. At first, I could only get the correct keyboard layout by changing the primary system language to German, which was not my preference. Eventually I figured out this,
    better solution on Windows 10 (which maintains the system language as English but the keyboard layout as Swiss German).

    Go to Settings > Time and Language > Region and Language > Additional date, time and region settings

    In Clock, Language, and Region, go to Language > Change input methods

    Here you will see all the language packs you have selected for your computer (in my case, English, French and German). In each, click on Options

    Under Input Options, choose Add an input method, and select the appropriate keyboard layout from the list. Be sure to save. Remove all other keyboard layouts.

    Repeat for all other languages on your list.

    Hi,



    I understand your concern and will assist you to resolve the issue.


    • How many keyboard language have you installed?
    If you have installed more than 1 keyboard language in your system, then I suggest you to remove the keyboard language other than default language and check if it helps.
