    Keyboard setting doesn't stick. Why not ?


    i have a Macally aluminium computer keyboard connected to my Pc.
    running Windows 8.1 64bit.
    In control panel, i have my keyboard setup as being US Internatonal (which my keyboard is).
    Language is setup as Dutch.

    Now, whenever i start my PC, they keyboard is always set to Dutch, not US international.
    But then my keyboard doesn't work ok, it must be on US International.
    i constantly have to set the keyboard setting back to US International in the taskbar.

    Can someone maybe help me ?

    thx in advance !

Australian Keyboard Setting not holding
Hello, I cannot get Windows 8 to hold the Australian setting for the keyboard. It keeps reverting back to the UK Keyboard every time I re-boot. I use a Windows wireless Comfort Keyboard 4000, but I don't think that is the problem. Any thoughts? Cheers Rob
