    With "new user", keyboard changed to Dvorak


    After setting up a new user for my wife, I tried typing but I immediately found out my keyboard is now Dvorak. Went back to MY user and it's still normal.

    Went back to the new user and I tried to fix it by doing the following.

    Settings > Time & Language > Region & Language > Advanced Keyboard Settings

    There, I had a choice of 2 settings.

    English (United States) - US
    English (United States) - United States Dvorak

    I clicked on English (United States) - US

    Yet everything stays with Dvorak.

    Any ideas so I don't go completely nuts? *Confused

    :)

    Change keyboard layout to Dvorak

    Hi Ajay,

    Seems like you want to get out of everybody's comfort zone by moving out of the QWERTY keyboard layout. I can help you with that request, kindly follow these steps to enable the US Dvorak layout for Windows 10:

    • On your keyboard, press Windows + I.
    • Select Time & language.
    • On the left pane, click Region & language.
    • Under Languages, highlight English (United States), then click
      Options.
    • Under Keyboards, click Add a keyboard.
    • Choose United States-Dvorak.
    • Close the settings.

    You can now choose the US Dvorak layout by clicking on the language selector in the taskbar. See screenshot below:

    On the pop-up, choose United States-Dvorak.

    Now you can enjoy your new keyboard layout. If you have further queries, feel free to reply to this post.

    Dvorak keyboard

    Hi Franz,

    Please perform the following steps to add the DVORAK keyboard layout:

    Click the Windows button + I. You’ll open Windows Settings

    Then press Time & Language

    Click on Region & Language on the left pane

    On the right pane, find the section Preferred languages, press the language you want to add the keyboard layout, then hit Options

    When you are in the Keyboards section, check if the DVORAK layout is there; if not, press Add a keyboard

    Find the DVORAK keyboard layout and click it

    Then close the window

    Check if the keyboard layout is now added

    Write me back if it works or not.

    Thanks,

    Andrew N.

    Dvorak keyboard on a Nokia Lumia 820...?

    I recently bought a Nokia Lumia 820 and upon checking the keyboard options I find there is an excellent range, but no Dvorak keyboard option. This seems strange as the list of options extends to Uzbek - Latin.



    Clearly Nokia wants to be friendly to all comers. Why the Dvorak oversight?



    Is there any way of downloading a Dvorak keyboard into a Nokia Lumia 820?



    If interested in the advantages of the Dvorak layout, go to
