    Unable to remove a 'default' language/keyboard layout


    I keep having an annoying problem.
    I have only 1 language with 1 keyboard layout in Language settings

    But the system keep changing keyboard layout (when restarting or resuming from sleep)

    Indeed, if I press WIN+SPACE I can see both layouts!

    I can I remove (forever) the unwanted layout (in this case ENG INTL) if I cannot even see it in settings?

    Thank you,
    Gianluca

    :)

    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?

    Keyboard layout switches to non-default layout/language after resume from sleep

    Hi,

    You can try these steps on changing your keyboard layout:


    • On the
      Start
      menu, click
      Settings

    • Select
      Time & language

    • Click
      Region & language

    • Select
      Add a language

    • Under
      Languages, click the language you want as a default and click
      Set as default.

    NOTE: In changing your keyboard layout, you can also try changing your computer's primary language.
    Your keyboard layout may also change in doing so. However, make sure to use the right keyboard layout for
    entering your password. You might not be able to sign in since the layout has been change.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Regards.

    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.
