    Removing unwanted keyboard layout


    Hello guys,
    Windows 10 is making me a hard life sometimes, recently without any setting change I see the keyboard layour near the clock (ENG) or (ROU US) but I did not want any of extra layouts and I don't know why Microsoft like to f*** with people nerves so much.

    The problem is the following, see screenshot:


    Removing unwanted keyboard layout [​IMG]


    As you see on settings I can't see the other layouts and I cannot remove the current one. I have installed long time ago a personalized keyboard layout which allow me to use special characters by a combination of keys like
    ALT + Q = â ; ALT + SHIFT + Q = Â
    ALT + S = ş ; ALT + SHIFT + S = Ş
    and so on...

    I prefer this one rather than replacing the [ ] ; ' : " keys with those special characters.

    How can I fix this? I don't see any other options on control panel and Its annoying me seeing an extra info near the clock and the worst is when it automatically switch to another keyboard layout.

    Thank you in advance.

    Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.18362.476]

    EDIT:

    Fixed screenshot

    :)

  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.

    Removing unwanted keyboard layout

    Unable to remove a 'default' language/keyboard layout

    Thank you.
    I was able to get rid of unwanted keyboard layouts (not showed in the Language/option/keyboard layout panel) but installed in the system, by adding and removing them (in the aforementioned panel).
