    How to remove US keyboard option


    I live in the UK and bought a UK laptop and installed it with all the UK-english features. However after downloading and enabling the JP keyboard, the US-english keyboard has forced itself into my switchable keyboards and I can't seem to get rid of it and it's crazy annoying. It doesn't show up in the keyboard section but is still in my language toolbar..

    US keyboard option may be part of JP Keyboard, so just ignore that.
