Windows 10: Randomly switching to unwanted keyboard layout

Discus and support Randomly switching to unwanted keyboard layout in Windows 10 Support to solve the problem; When I type in French I use the Canadian Multilingual Standard layout. This is what I have configured in my settings and it is what worked fine for me... Discussion in 'Windows 10 Support' started by ricecrispies, Jun 1, 2018.

  1. Randomly switching to unwanted keyboard layout


    When I type in French I use the Canadian Multilingual Standard layout. This is what I have configured in my settings and it is what worked fine for me for years until a week or two ago (which suggests the April update may have had something to do with it).

    Now when I switch to French I find that I am often in another layout which I believe to be the Canadian French layout, although I am not completely sure. It is similar to the Canadian multilingual with the most notable difference being that the è and the / are swapped round. I have never chosen the Canadian French keyboard in my preferences and it isn't listed there now. Canadian Multilingual is what is listed.

    What's even more annoying is that the layout seems to switch randomly between Canadian Multilingual and Canadian French while I am typing, so I am never really sure what is going to happen when I try to type an è.

    How can I get my keyboard to consistently be Canadian Multilingual when I am typing in French?

    Randomly switching to unwanted keyboard layout


    You could see if you can use the override default input option, assuming this is available (I think it isn't if you only have one keyboard installed- which would be logical). This worked in a similar case where the user had an unwanted keyboard layout in use.

    (Note- appearance may differ if you are on build 1803)

    Randomly switching to unwanted keyboard layout

    switching keyboard layouts between devices

    I recently bought a surface book on a holiday to USA and it has a US keyboard layout. When I set this device to use the US keyboard layout it switched all of the other devices on my account to suit. How can I set the surface book to a US keyboard Layout
    but keep my desktop, laptop and tablet on the UK keyboard layout (which is the keyboard layout they all use) but still all attached to the my Microsoft account?

    Step by step instructions would be appreciated for an idiot.

    Thanks
