US ENG Input Language Changing

    Sorry for taking so long to get back.

    Vadikan, I don't know if that's what I'm looking for...it just means that I'll be using the US Keyboard instead of the Irish one.

    It happens randomly; sometimes it wont be there and then after a while, it will just appear.

    If all else fails, I'll probably go with Vadikan's suggestion but does anyone else have any other ideas of what it may be?

    Thanks

    It means you'll be using Irish, but the system and third party apps will think you use US.

    Some program is probably forcing it.

    That's what I was thinking but I cant see which one. I tried opening all my major programs on at a time but I cant see which one is using it.

    I really appreciate your help Vadikan and I'll definitely use your workaround if I cant find any thing else.

    Hey,

    I think I might have figured it out. I was on the laptop today and it seemed to pop up after I opened Chrome (I know your going to kill me for not checking that but I unticked the box in Windows to not allow apps to change my language etc).

    However, Chrome is not an app since I have it running in desktop mode so that could be how it was getting through the loop

    Anyway, I went into Chrome's setting and English (US) is the language set so I changed it to UK and deleted it. I'll have to wait a few days and see if the ENG appears but I'll report back on Friday and let ye know.

    Thanks for all your help and thanks Vadikan for your replies and help...appreciate it guys ;-)

    Okay guys...I figured it out for real this time and it's the most random thing.

    I have my Synaptics Touchpad set that if I touch the top right corner of the touchpad; it will close the open program.

    Get this though;

    The ENG only pops up if I open an image and use the top right button on the touchpad to close it; how random and weird is that?

    It only happens if I have an image open and I use that touchpad tapping. It doesnt happen if I press the x in the corner or if I use the touchpad tap on any other program, video file etc.

    I'm guessing no one is going to have any idea of why this may be happening but feel free to shoot some suggestions at me and I'll try them and report back
