If you see a keyboard or input method that you aren’t expecting in the input switcher or in your preferred languages list, here are some ways to fix it.

Remove the language from Settings

Here’s the first thing to try:

  1. Select Start  > Settings  > Time & language  > Language & region .

  2. Find the language you don’t want on your PC, then select More > Remove.

If the unwanted keyboard or input method is still there, you can remove the individual keyboard from Settings. Here’s how:

  1. Select Start  > Settings  > Time & language  > Language & region .

  2. Find the language you don’t want on your PC, then select More > Language options > Remove.

Unwanted language or keyboard is still in the input switcher

If the unwanted language or keyboard is still in the input switcher, but not in the language list, try this:

  1. Select Start  > Settings  > Time & language  > Language & region .

  2. Select Add a language, add the unwanted language or keyboard, then select Next > Install.

  3. After the language or keyboard is installed, select More > Language options > Remove.

Note: The last keyboard for a language and the default input method can’t be removed. The default input method is based on the order of the language list in Settings.

Default input method doesn’t show the language you chose

If the default input method doesn’t have the language you chose, try this:

  1. Select Start  > Settings  > Time & language  > Typing Advanced keyboard settings.

  2. In Override for default input method, select your preferred language.
