I choose Spanish (Argentina) keyboard layout though the rest everything in English.
However I get constantly frustrated because when I'm writing my keyboard layout changes into the English (US) layout.

I asked at many forums no one answered yet :)

please how can I be completely sure that my keyboard will be always Spanish (Argentina) and ONLY modified when I decide that by clicking LeftAlt plus Shift keys.
Thanks and Happy New Year!

Hi OliverPe ,

Welcome to HTG ,

I am not a Win 8 user but have you checked the Regional Settings in Control Panel to make sure the time zone is set for your part of the world ?

Is just a thought until a Win 8 user comes along.

It has to be first in Text Services and Input Languages. You find that in Control Panel\Clock, Language, and Region > Change Keyboard button.
