    Windows 10 keyboard language keeps changing


    Hi,
    So here is my problem: I only have one preferred language in my language settings. In that preferred language, I only have one keyboard layout, Canadian french. But for some reason, it keeps changing, and it's getting frustrating. I only want one keyboard layout, why does Windows keeps adding more and changing it?

    Windows 8.1 update changed the language, can't change back

    Maybe, these will help... it seems it is a common enough problem.

    Language packs are no longer available after you upgrade to Windows 8.1

    And, sort of the same here --> Add a language or keyboard

    Quote from above MS web page:

    Spoiler Download and install language packs
    You'll need to download the language pack if you want to make a language your Windows display language (that's the language you see most often in Windows and apps).
    • Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, tap Settings, and then tap Change PC settings.
      (If you're using a mouse, point to the lower-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer up, click Settings, and then click Change PC settings.)
    • Tap or click Time and language, and then tap or click Region and language.
    • Tap or click a language that says Language pack available underneath, and then tap or click Options.
    • Tap or click Download. The download process might take a while, depending on your PC and the size of the language pack.
      If you want to make this your display language, see the next section "Change your Windows display language".
    Change your Windows display language
    To change your Windows display language (that's the language you see most often in Windows and apps), first add a language, download and install the language pack, and then follow these steps.
    • Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, tap Settings, and then tap Change PC settings.
      (If you're using a mouse, point to the lower-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer up, click Settings, and then click Change PC settings.)
    • Tap or click Time and language, and then tap or click Region and language.
    • Tap or click the language that you want to set as your display language.
    • Tap or click Set as primary to move the language to the top of the list. If the language can become your Windows display language, you'll see Will be display language after next sign-in appear under the language.
    • Sign out and then sign back in to finish.
    And here is some more info --> Add Language Packs to Windows

    • Right click the driver installation file and select
      Properties then tap or click the Compatibility tab.

      OK.
    • Try installing the driver and check.
