How to Add or Remove Keyboard Layouts in Windows 10


In Windows, you can configure your keyboard to use a different keyboard layout or input method to type in another language.

The language of your keyboard layout controls the characters that appear on your screen when you type. By using the different layouts, you can type all the characters for the language, including diacritics such as the umlaut () in German and the tilde () in Spanish.

This tutorial will show you how to add and remove keyboard layouts for your account in Windows 10.
