How to change keyboard language windows 10

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have a us style keyboard as i found it at a discount but for some reason my PC recognises it as a UK keyboard and as a result i cant use the backslash which, as i am learning to code python, is quite annoying.

If anyone knows how to change the layout the PC detects this would be greatly appreciated.

thanks

Look at the bottom right of your screen. Beside the time and date, you can choose the language of your keyboard.

Search for "Region & Language settings" in the taskbar, open it and click on the language of your choice under "Preferred languages", then click options.  Then click "Add a keyboard", find "United States-International" or whatever one you want.


I like dark themes and keyboards.
