    keyboard layout switching on other computer


    hello,

    i have a windows 8 laptop with a azerty- keyboard layout, recently i bougt another laptop which has a qwerty-layout. my problem is that i use my microsoft account to log in to the computers and so the keyboard layout keeps switching automatically to the last laptop i used.

    is there a way to make sure this doesnt keep happening and that i dont have to switch it manually everytime?

    thanks, dylan.

    Go to sync settings and deselect language preferences - this is keyboard, display language etc
