    Removing unwanted keyboard when the language which is not in the win language pack


    Please do not ask me how that happen - my 7yo son was usingthe pc and after that I have noticed extra input keyboard - "PapiamentoCaribbean US keyboard". Problem is that in the language pack Windows10, latest updates I have found only "Papiamentu", not"Papiamento", so the standard method of removing unwanted keyboarddoes not work cause I cannot install "Papiamento" language and lateruninstall, which would remove unwanted keyboard.

    Is there a way to remove such keyboard when language cannotbe installed/not included in language pack? So far I have found that suchlanguage used to be provided, please see https://word.uservoice.com/forums/3.../suggestions/39095434-add-language-papiamento

    Anyway, perhaps we could treat it in a more generic way. So, ifsomebody knows how to remove unwanted keyboard in my case installed in astrange, unknown way with a language which cannot be installed and thenremoved, together with the relevant keyboard could such person kindly sharethe know-how?

    :)

  3. Remove secondary keyboard language.

    Hi Jacob,

    Removing a keyboard layout can be done through Control Panel and
    Settings. Before doing so, make sure that the language pack of your preferred keyboard layout is installed on your computer. To remove a keyboard layout through
    Control Panel, here's how:

    • Go to Control Panel. Under Clock, Language, and Region, click
      Add a language.
    • Click the keyboard layout that you want to remove, then click Options
      > Remove.

    To remove a keyboard layout through Settings, refer to these steps:

    • Go to Settings > Time & language >
      Region & language
      .
    • Click the keyboard layout that you want to delete, then click Remove.

    Feel free to post back if you have further questions.

    Removing unwanted keyboard when the language which is not in the win language pack

    Can't (completely) remove language keyboard layout

    Yup, no such luck. My next step will be to temporarily install another language as the system language (like English UK or something), and remove US English as the default language and the keyboard, and everything, and then reboot and install it again and see if that does anything....

    But I am betting it won't. And my reason is because when I was inspired to make my own keyboard layout I downloaded one another person had made, whidch was based on English UK keyboard, and it did not work correctly for me so I uninstalled it (and have since improved, I think, upon what he had done,) and I just now realized that that keyboard, which was under English language and keyboard, is still in my list as well. When I had installed it then UK English had become one of the available languages, and I have since removed it from being active and so forht. So, basically I did to UK English what I am propsing to do for US English... and yet that old keyboard layout remains.

    There has to be somewhere that Windows keeps references all the different keyboard layouts available for the different language packs installed.... The question is where is that and how to modify it?
