In Windows, you canÂ change your keyboard layoutÂ to type in another language or input method you want to use..
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 (Ă¤) in German and the tilde (Ă±) in Spanish.
When youÂ add a language, the default keyboard layout for the language will be installed by default.
You can install additionalÂ keyboardsÂ for language-specific key layouts and input options. Adding an input language lets you set a language-preference order for websites and apps, as well as change your keyboard language.
When you have more than oneÂ languageÂ and/orÂ keyboard layoutÂ installed, you canÂ change your keyboard layoutÂ via the Language Bar or press theÂ WinÂ +Â SpacebarÂ keys to cycle through all your installed keyboards.
When you change your keyboard layout, it gets applied globally to your account by default in Windows 11. If you like, you can use a different input method for each app window instead.
This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off use a different keyboard layout for each app window for your account in Windows 11.
