Windows 10 supports multiple keyboard installations on your PC. This is useful for those who need to use multiple languages for their work. You may have tried this out of curiosity, and even after removing these keyboards from your profile, they reappear every time you start your PC. The problem is most visible during the login screen. In this article, we show you how you can prevent deleted keyboards from reappearing.
The deleted keyboard appears every time the PC starts
This problem occurs especially if you have multiple accounts on your Windows 10 PC. Some users may use multiple keyboards, and it seems that this setting applies to all other accounts, even if the user has not activated them himself. Understand this as a global framework for all users. It removes the settings from the clean installation, and the only way to change them is to copy them from the Control Panel.
You must change everything on your current settings and then apply to the rest.
Delete multiple keyboards for your account
The first step is to delete all additional keyboards. Go to Settings > Time and Language > Select the language for which you want to delete the keyboard > Options > Select Keyboard > Select Keyboard > Delete.
Open the command prompt (WIN + R key) and enter ‘Control’. The classic control panel opens.
Then click Change Date, Time or Number Format under the Clock and Region category.
Go to the Admin tab and click the Copy Settings button.
Check these two boxes under ‘Copy your current settings to’ and press OK.
- Home screen and system accounts
- New user accounts
Restart and this should solve the problem.
Note : The display language for new user accounts is currently taken from the display language of the home screen.
With this trick, you can keep the languages for display, but you can get rid of the keyboard if you don’t use it at all. No need to change the keyboard during the login screen.
