    Hello Max, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    On a desktop, the Keyboard option in the Settings charm is used to select a language or keyboard input method when you have more than one added. If you don't, then Keyboard will be grayed out and nonfunctional.

    Input Methods - Add or Remove for Keyboard Layout in Windows 8


    Language - Add or Remove in Windows 8

    If you have a touchscreen, then the Keyboard option will have an option to open the Touch keyboard and handwriting panel in addition to the above.

    Hope this helps,
