    Actually, I deleted US input method. My set-up is like post 5. When I installed windows I had 2 input methods but I deleted US to stop my keys being mapped wrongly sometimes.

    well, I have bad news. I thought I solved it... but I was minutes ago writing -even in Spanish- in Word 2013 and it came back to English.

    Here is my set up. What should I do? I guess I do not have to reformat my computer? (BTW I did not log off for all this either)

    The only setting that is different from mine is "Allow me to set a different input method..." below. If it is not that then I don't know what else to suggest, sorry :-(

    Can I settle my keyboard layout to just one?


    I've already asked in different places and I never got a definitive answer.

    Is there a way to set up W8 to avoid changing the keyboard layout so as to keep only in one keyboard layout (Latin American Keyboard). Bear in mind that I would like to keep US English as the Windows display language.

    Your help is appreciated.

    Thanks

    I saw this on another thread here, I can't find it again now but the link is below...

    Seems it is a bug on 8 and 8.1 but you can fix it with some registry changes.

    Hope this helps

    Thank you.
    I visited the link you mentioned.
    Very interesting. At least it shows that there IS a problem.

    However it is very long and there are thousands of suggestions. Do you know which are the registry changes to be made? The problem is that I'm not an expert.
    Thanks
