  1. Hi Amit,
    Its good to learn of how to change of the keyword settings on Windows 10. I guess we should be armed with these tips now so that when the operating system is fully released we can apply them!

    I have shared this comment in where this post was found.

  2. Windows 10 is driving me mad. I cannot change the keyboard layout. The keys are typing the wrong letter. For example when I type @ I have to use the apostrophe key and for the ” I have to us that At key.

    I have done exactly what is advised using numerous you tube and other tutorials how to fix this but the keyboard still stays the same. I am set up in language on United Kingdom English as the default language and the country as New Zealand. I’ve removed all other languages, but still the keyboard ” and @ keys are reversed.

    How does one change this ?? Whatever the tutorials state does not work !!

    • My Win 10 is doing same thing, @ is typed by using “. I have tried all the forum ideas etc. but no go !! My system is Lenovo – 90F1 with Lenovo keyboard – LXH-JME2209U
      Extremely frustrating !!!

      • Click on the keyboard icon on the bottom right-hand corner. This causes the touch screen keyboard to appear. On the right-hand bottom corner of the keyboard, you will see a small keyboard symbol. Click on this and you can then select the desired keyboard layout

      • What Alex says works, you should not select the UK-English keyboard but the US-international one, that makes it normal again!

        • I can’t see any keyboard icon anywhere.

          I am using Windows 10.

          How do I select the US International keyboard?

  3. Do you have any other way of doing this please? I have the same problem but my touch screen does not have a keyboard symbol on the right hand bottom. Thanks. Tony

  4. ok so I was working with blender and had to hold the shift button down to do a multiple selection which up until now I could do. Then Windows 10 decided to “help me” with its keyboard ease of access and now my keyboard dose not function for Games or using multiple selection or anything that requires me to use the same button on the keyboard for more then a second. I have tried to reset this through every possible way and frankly this is ridiculous I cant use my Keyboard anymore So I would like to thank Microsoft for basically making my computer a paper weight because this problem persists regardless which of those little boxes I click on. I cannot see a restore to default option any where So can I do that so I can use my computer again as I intend?

  5. Do you know how to personalise the keyboard? I’ve pressed something by mistake, and now every time I press “alt + r” I get a pop up message about changing colour settings.

  6. This blog about How to Change Keyboard Settings on Windows
    10 ✅ has helped me a lot, it is very well written.
