    US keyboard + UK English


    Is it possible to setup Windows so that it recognises that I have an ANSI layout, but that spell checking and such is in British English?

    You could add both US and UK layouts, make UK the default display language, so you also have UK spell, but change the default input language (layout) to US. This is necessary especially for non-latin languages since changing the default display language to the native language automatically makes default that layout and you must remember to change it to US to type passwords.

    To set the default input language (layout) independently from the default display language, check my post in this thread.

    So you can have the US layout to match your keyboard, but the UK display language to have UK spelling support.

    I guess that works. I'd prefer if I had only British spellchecking available in Skype and IE instead of merging both spellings though, is that possible?

    You could leave only the English UK language, but then you would have to remember that some symbols on your keyboard are on a different place when typing (such as @ and " and others).

    I guess that'll be as good as it gets then. Never mind, thank you for the help!
