  1. Remove keyboard layout setting.


    I have my PC set on English UK, because for fixing stuff it's always more useful to have all the settings in English, easier to troubleshoot. My keyboard is the German layout, though. I have also installed the IME Japanese keyboard so I can write in kana.
    Now, my issue is, that when I hit ALT+SHIFT to cycle between keyboard layouts, it switches from GER to J to EN, and then back to GER. The EN keyboard option is of absolutely no use for me, as my keyboard is German. I cannot find a way to remove that keyboard option, though. I can remove the German and Japanese options alright, but not the English one. I tried changing my preferred keyboard to German, but I still cannot remove the English one.

    The only option I see is changing my system language to German, but I do not want to do that. Is there a way to remove that English keyboard layout from my options so I can cycle between GER and J keyboards hassle free?

    I tried going into the language and keyboard layout settings, but I cannot find the UK keyboard option anywhere to remove it, as it is apparently installed as default.

    :)

  3. how to remove keyboard layout on Windows 10?

    Hi Eric,



    We regret the inconvenience caused.



    The above issue might occur due to the following reasons:

    • Country & Region settings not enabling you to delete the keyboard language set on the PC.
    • Not choosing appropriate default keyboard layout.


    Before we assist you further, I would like to ask you a few questions:

    • Did you try removing the keyboard layouts from Settings page?
    • If yes, does the issue persists even after removing the keyboard layout?


    By removing the Keyboard layout from system Settings page, the language will be removed from the PC. However, if needed, you can download the same from system
    Settings page and check if the changes made are effective.



    You can remove the keyboard layout either from system Settings page or
    Control panel. Follow either of the steps below to remove the keyboard layout and check if the issue is resolved.



    Step 1: System Settings window.



    • Press Windows logo + I keys on the keyboard to open
      Settings
      page.
    • Click on Time & language from the options and select
      Region & language
      from the left side panel of the window.
    • Click on the keyboard language you want to remove under Languages and click on
      Remove.
    • Close the window and check if the changes are effective.


    Step 2: Control panel.



    • Press Windows logo + X keys on the keyboard and click on
      Control panel from the context menu.
    • Click on View by option located at the top right corner of the window and select
      Large icons from the dropdown bar.
    • From the panel, click on Language.
    • Under Change your language preferences click on the keyboard layout to remove and click on the
      Remove button which will now be available to use.
    • Close the window and check if the changes are effective.


    Write to us with the status of the issue on the keyboard layout language removed from the PC for further assistance. Your reply is most important for us to ensure we assist you accordingly.



    Thank you.

    Remove keyboard layout setting.

    Unable to remove a 'default' language/keyboard layout

    Dear dalchina,
    thank you for the reply, but I am probably missing something.
    As you can see from the attached picture, language settings DOES NOT list the keyboard layout I want to remove (ENG INTL). So, how can I remove a layout that is not listed in the Language settings?
