- You can also change the language that Windows uses for everything, not just the keyboard.

Windows gives you a lot of control over the language it uses — so much control, in fact, that it can be confusing to set it up the way you want.
For example, you can change the language that Windows uses for every menu, or just the language used for the keyboard.

How to change the keyboard language on Windows 10
You can change your keyboard’s language without changing the language that Windows is using on the screen — this is handy for gaining access to accent marks and other specialized characters, or for typing on a keyboard with a different language layout.
1. Click Start and then click the Settings icon (which is shaped like a gear).
2. Click “Time & Language.”
3. In the navigation pane on the left, click “Language.”
4. In the “Preferred languages section,” click your language (i.e., “English”) and then click “Options.”
5. Scroll down to “Keyboards” and then click “Add a keyboard.” In the pop-up menu, click the keyboard language you want to add.
6. Close Settings. Once you add a second keyboard language to Windows, a language control button will appear in the taskbar, in the lower-right corner of the screen. Click it, and in the pop-up menu that appears, choose the language you want to use with your keyboard.
You can always return to the taskbar to switch back to your original keyboard language.
