    Second keyboard layout


    Hi all, I have just installed win10 64bit and am at a loss on how to install a second keyboard layout. I am learning Russian and had the Cyrillic keyboard with my old win7 os. I looked at the language packs but do not want to change all of my os to Russian (it would take me a long time to do anything..), just the Alt+Shift I used to do. I checked both these forums and google and could not find a thing. Makes me think it's not available, but I hope I am wrong.

    Thank you in advance.

    No, you don't need whole language pack to ad keyboard layout.
    Go to Control Panel > Language > Add a Language. For most of languages there's even several possible keyboard layouts.

    Thank you very much for replying. I looked at the language part in settings, but in a very blonde moment thought it would replace English.. now after reading your reply and having another look at it see that it 'ADDS' a language. Geez, what a dill.. haha.

    Again, thank you very much..:)
