Setting Language options for 2 keyboards?

Q: Setting Language options for 2 keyboards?

As I bought my laptop when I was living abroad, it has an American (I suppose) style keyboard, where (for example) the number keys 1 to 5 in Caps are marked (and produce the symbols) ! @ # $ %. Given that the laptop sits on the desk mostly, I find it a lot easier when doing emails or whatever to use a USB keyboard on my lap, but this has a UK layout, where the same keys in Caps are marked ! " ? $ % ... but produce the same symbols as the first example (laptop's own keyboard).

I don't suppose there is any way to get Windows to recognise the two different keyboard layouts, so that the USB one produces the symbols depicted on the keys? Can I remap it without affecting the laptop one? Can't work out how, if so.

Hello All,
Please understand the scenario.

"We are developing a web based software that is used in FleetServices to process some driver and vehicle files, that contains activities (like driving, rest etc.). So the problem is that when i got a (driver/vehicle) file in German language and i try to transfer it to server, it fails if my regional setting is set to Greek Language. But i am able to transfer (driver/vehicle) file if my OS's Regional setting is other than Greek."

So my question is that why German language is not supported by operating system only if my regional setting is Greek (it is working fine if regional setting is other than Greek).

Is there a bug in Windows XP or Visual Studio 8 or we are doing something wrong.

If there German language is not supported by Greek OS then please refer my some url where such information is available which clearly speaks that this scenario is not at all supported. If it is supported then please tell me how to support it.

I would be very-very thankful to you.

to start off the version of windowsXP was a burned copy and was so called "stripped to the bones" version, therefore it really was stripped to the bones came with almost nothing but the system files. but anywayz i realized that i could not get the regional and language options working, no matter what i did nothing would work

1 - i tryed installing them from the CD when it asked for the asian files
2 - i tryed it manualy installing them (took forever and nothing still..)
3 - i went into the administrator options and couldnt find anything to do with the reginal options.

what im wondering is, is there a way that the adminstraitor(whoever made this copy of my windowsXP) was able to disable any use of useing the Regional an Language Options even after trying to install?

if so is there a way i can turn it on so i can at least start seeing some chinese/japanese/korean ect. characters on my internet when i go to browse around on those sites instead of " ??? ? ? ?? ?????? ? ? ???" thats getting on my nervs

if there is anyway i can get this working agian taht would be the greatest thing in the world.

thank you.

Hello, this is my first post so I'll try my best, thanks for all those who help!

First off, when I type in Korean and Japanese using the appropriate Korean/Japanese IMEs, the language bar is autoset to Half_width alphanumeric. I want to remove all options except for Hiragana and Full-Width Katakana and set it so that when I change my language to Japanese it automatically sets to Hiragana. Similarly with Korean how do I remove the alphanumeric and leave only the korean language option?
Secondly, is there a button is can use to fluidly tag between language options within an language? So for instance, if I'm in Japanese is there a combination of buttons to press such that I can change between Hiragana and Full-Width Katakana?

Thanks you for support!

I work for an insurance company in the IT side over here in New Zealand.

A piece of software we write in-house is updated online, it checks the date format before it downloads, and if it detects the American format of Month/Day/Year it will throw an error (error is ours and known)

This is fine; however on checking the settings, the following 3 areas are set to the correct options.

Formats Tab = English - New Zealand
Location Tab = New Zealand
Default Location = New Zealand (button on bottom of location tab)

Now to fix this, we have to ask them to change all 3 above options to English - United States or any other country, apply the changes, and then reset the above 3 options back to English - New Zealand etc.

Its very strange, we cannot find why after months of digging around in code etc and presume its Windows, where its set to a location but its not 100% implemented.

Another thing I noticed, was when installing Win7 on a machine here, even when setting all 3 to English New Zealand etc during install, it still occurs with this error.

Just wondering if anyone knows of this error?

We are thinking about building our app so that if it detects the US time format it will read it correctly, and if it?s English - US it will just pretend its NZ to stop the time wastage of helpdesk time.


p.s no we don?t live with sheep and no NZ is not like lord of the rings everywhere

I recently moved from vista back down to ye olde favourite "XP".
I am studying in Japanese at the moment and I havent had trouble with the regional and language options before but since I installed XP its been giving me a lot of trouble.

What I plan to have working is:
The ability to type in Japanese (Hiragana, Katakana..etc)
The ability to see and read Japanese

What I can do after installing the East Asian Languages (Not to mention browsing the internets for help)
..: The ability to see and read Japanese.

The thing that gets me is I always get errors when installing but I still can read the japanese just not type it. (I just tried to uninstall it and re'install it and no errors harrah)

So what I'm suppose to do is install the East Asian Languages... Then Go into Languages Tab under regional and languages in control panel. Click "Details" and it will go into a part called "Something Input languages". By Language input they basicly mean the ability to write in a different language.
So I click "add" I stroll down... no Japanese... no where..no how! so I'm stuck. I search the internet for answers... comes up with the thing I do and it doesnt make sense.!!!
Sorry its long and maybe not 100% understandable..ha..ha sorry abou tthat! But if you can help me it would be great ...

Hi All,

I recently bought an Acer laptop with German W7 Home Premium. I was told that I could upgrade to W8 Pro and select English, however W8 has too many problems like not shutting down properly and poorly functioning USB.

I have temporarily reinstalled the German W7HP, but I need English.

I realise that W7HP cannot accept additional language packs.

What is the best solution please?

Should I buy a new W7HP in English? Or can I upgrade from German W7HP to English W7HP?

Or should I upgrade from German W7HP to W7Ultimate and instal English LP?

Any help/advice/suggestions much appreciated

Hi there.

I plan to take a Japanese class in the fall, and I'm trying to install the East Asian Language files in Windows XP.

I know exactly where to find it and the steps I follow once I get there. My problem is, the option won't open.

I go to Control Panel, I double click Regional and Language Options. Nothing happens. I click it once, and use the right mouse button menu to select open. Nothing. I make a shortcut to it on my desktop and try that. Nothing. I restart and try again. Nothing. I googled everything I can think of, and I'm not finding anyone else with this problem.

It's like the menu doesn't exist, and only the icon remains. I really don't want to have to reinstall Windows. Anyone know what I can do?

I've recently upgraded to windows 8.1 and I noticed it has reverted all my language changes back to Chinese (Hong Kong). After redownloading and setting all the primary languages back to English in the control Panel I've realized that everything (even the login screen) is in English EXCEPT for some options in metro, how would you fully change this?

I've uploaded some examples of where the Chinese language shows up, everything else seems to be fine, if I right click on the desktop the menus are in English.

It sounds like you are using a laptop (always best to explain the computer type, it makes help easier)

The problems you describe simply indicate that "Numlock" is acive for the keyboard, where those keys are dula use as a number pad.

Without knowing the hardware the best I can suggest it that you use the Fn key plus F5 or whatever the assigned key is to toggle the Numlock function.

Hey guys.

I remember removing other language settings from my laptop, but for some reason CH (Taiwan) still remains:

How do I remove it? There is no "language pack" to uninstall. I cannot "change display language" because that section is not even there. As you can see from the screenshot even the keyboard only retains the default English (US).

No apparent related search results from google. Found something in the registry, although I have no idea how it is related. There is a key named HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Font Management\Auto Activation Languages which shows what appears to be the two languages available (EN US and CH TW):

Searching for Auto Activation Languages has been similarly futile. Anyone know how to remove the second one and leave only the default English (US)? For what it's worth, this laptop was apparently manufactured in China so it's possibly some preinstalled language thing. However, nothing shows up in Control Panel programs to be uninstalled. I can only see the option in the language bar as well as in the topleft corner of the login screen (it's a button labelled "EN" so I suspect it's just the language bar again). Any ideas?

Hello Everyone,
As I travel to the north on regular occasions, I bought a Lenovo G585 laptop in Spain, where I live. It had W.7.Home Premium installed in Spanish.
I have now upgraded it with the free installation of W.10.
As with all things downloaded in Spain, there is rarely a choice to obtain the download in English.
After the download I found a way to change the language into English.
That done, the keyboard no longer responded correctly!
I am also not able to use the search facility Cortana as it is unavailable in Spain.
Is there any way that I can have the W10 OS language in English AND make the keyboard respond to its designed (Spanish) keys?

(I am writing this on my desktop which has W7 Ultimate in English installed!)

Thanks in advance for any advice,



A:Problem with setting English language

Yes you can and it is the same as in 7 if I remember correctly.

Search for Language in Control Panel. Click on Options in the English Language.

On Input Method click on Add Input Method and scroll down the list until you find Spanish. Then remove English.

This only affects your keyboard - no other regional or language settings are affected.

For Cortana to work you need your language, region and speech have to be the same - it doesn't care about the keyboard. If your language is US English you'll need to make sure you set your region to US as well. As region affects things like search results and news I leave mine where I am and don't use Cortana but it is up to you - I've just not found a use for it yet.

A few days ago, my dad had actually tried (accidentally) to change the language to Hungarian and the Keyboard setting for it which means that the keys in my US keyboard won't be correct. The thing is, I've changed every setting back to US English, but the Hungarian one keeps going back (only the keyboard setting). So I have to go to that other administrator user to change it to US for me to type my password for the main user correctly. To be specific about the setting, it's in:
Control Panel -> Date, Time, Language and Regional Options -> Regional and Language Options -> Languages Tab -> Details... -> Settings Tab -> Installed services box ---- There, the Hungarian keyboard setting appears again when I reboot my computer.

The problem is, everytime I close down the window, it resets back to US English! I go back into the setting and US English is displayed in the Languages->Details menu and UK has been removed!

Why could this be?

I have removed any viruses and threats, but still no luck.

Hi Everyone,

We are trying to create a Windows 8.1 image and have been having a little trouble with the language settings after running sysprep.exe with an unattend.xml file. Everything is working how we want it to work except the language settings after oobe has run etc.

The sysprep command we run is: sysprep.exe /generalize /oobe /shutdown /unattend:unattend.xml

Before running sysprep we are setting the language settings to have English (Australia) as the preferred langauge with the Date, time and number formatting.

After sysprep / oobe etc has been run it is changing it to English (US) as the preferred language with the Date, time and number formatting.

We have tried numerous different things with our Unattend.xml file without success. The following code is the latest file we are using, would very much appreciate any help/advice to solve this issue!

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<unattend xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:unattend">
<settings pass="generalize">

A:Sysprep with Unattend.xml, not setting correct language

I think my problem is solved!

It seems that it is only when I login with the local user account that I used to setup the image (the one that gets copied to default user) that has the incorrect language settings. If I login with a new user account it has the correct settings.

I'm wondering if this has something to do with running 'Sysprep.exe' using that user account and whether that changes the language settings for that account? If anyone could explain why this might be I would be very interested!

I have just bought an Acer 5610 in Spain. When I started up I accidentally selected Espanol as the language selection. Well I think I selected Ingles, but everything is in Spanish. Does anyone know how to select the correct language. I considered restoring the computer to its original settings but the user guide says "if your system is the multilingual version, the operating system and language you choose when you first turn on the system will be the only option for future recovery operations." I have tried setting the language from the control panel, but it does not work. Can anyone help or will I have to speed up my Spanish lessons?
