Choose language settings for your keyboard, websites, and apps

You can add an input language in Settings. Adding an input language lets you set a language-preference order for websites and apps. It also lets you change your keyboard language.

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

  2. Under Preferred languages, select the language that contains the keyboard you want, and then select Options.

  3. Select Add a keyboard and choose the keyboard you want to add. If you don't see the keyboard you want, you may have to add a new language to get additional options. If this is the case, go on to step 4.

  4. Return to the Language settings page, and select Add a language.

  5. Choose the language you want to use from the list, and then select Next.

  6. Review any language features you want to set up or install, and select Install.
