There is a small change to the Control Panel in Windows 8 and Windows 10 that involves splitting the Region and Language applet into two separate applets. This makes changing your keyboard layout a little more tricky than previous versions of Windows.
Changing Your Keyboard Layout in Windows 8 or Windows 10
The first thing we need to do is launch the classic Control Panel, you can do this by pressing the Win + R keyboard combination and selecting Control Panel from the context menu.
To save a few clicks, switch to the Small icons view.
Then go ahead and select the new Language option.
On the right-hand side you will see an options hyperlink, click on it.
It is over here that you will be able to add and remove keyboard layouts.
That’s all there is to it.
