Customization :: Keyboard Layout Change Lost After Reboot?
Feb 26, 2016
I know how to change the keyboard layout by clicking on the (in my case) "ENG US" next to the Notification area. So i change it to "ENG" (wish I could make that say "ENG HANS"). But, after a reboot, I am back to "ENG US".
Okay, so I take blame for accidentally messing up my Windows 10. My NVIDIA graphics card wasn't working and wasn't letting me install my drivers. Well that aside, now that I installed older Drivers Windows 10 registers something horribly wrong. It wants to do a system repair. Okay, good, fine with me. But then when it gets to the page for me to select a keyboard layout, I have no mouse and my keyboard doesn't work either.
Anytime I press a button on them their backlights turn on, but then turn back off when I don't do anything with them.
I can't afford to get a new OS, I have no DVD Drive so I definitely can't do anything that requires a disk. What do I do?
I have just installed win10 64bit and am at a loss on how to install a second keyboard layout. I am learning Russian and had the Cyrillic keyboard with my old win7 os. I looked at the language packs but do not want to change all of my os to Russian (it would take me a long time to do anything..), just the Alt+Shift I used to do. I checked both these forums and google and could not find a thing. Makes me think it's not available
i was repairing my lenovo pc windows 8.1 with windows 10. when i was on the middle of repairing, i get stuck on 'çhoose your keyboard layout' command because it is not responding to either keyboard or mouse, even if i force it to shut down, it's going directly to choose your keyboard layout.
I recently update Windows 10 to the current newest update, and I noticed that I had a glitch where my other display (I have 2 displays) just turned off. I went to the settings to check it and it wouldn't identify it as being there so I decided to restart. Once it finishes showing the first Windows 10 splash screen both screens (it recognized the other screen after restart) went black. Nothing would appear. Not even a cursor of my mouse.
So here is where the problem lies now: I decided to restart again and this time something did happen. On my screen it asked me what keyboard I am using.nothing was being detected. My USB Mouse (which works fine otherwise) and my hardwired USB Keyboard (works too) just wouldn't be detected. I do not have any of the "gaming" mouses. They are both just very basic Logitech mouse and keyboard designed for such events.
Windows 10 upgraded my computer today. The problem I am having right now that I am stuck on choose keyboard layout auto repair screen. My keyboard works but when light goes out on keyboard and mouse I am not able to actively select any layout.
I have a HP computer and I installed windows 10 about a month and a half ago. Now I cannot log into my computer because it continues to get stuck on a keyboard layout page. Windows came installed originally on my computer so I have no start up disc or anything. And windows 10 I got from the recent download so no disc for that one either. Is there anything I can do to get the screen to disappear? When i try to click on my keyboard or mouse while it is up neither works.
Went to bed last night and Windows was fine, after a few initial glitches it's been working without problems for more than a month. This morning, I wake up and it is showing a screen that asks me to choose my keyboard layout which does not respond to any input devices. When I manually power the computer off and back on, Windows says it's starting an automatic repair, then brings up the choose my keyboard layout page again. I can't get past it.
Note that I loaded Win10 from the download and this computer didn't come with OS disks for Win7, so I have no DVD to boot from. I am also going to be very very annoyed if I have to go buy an OS disk, reformat and lose the 20,000 pictures I have stored, It's an HP Pavilion (I can't read the model number right now, it is about four years old), has a quad-core processor.
I cannot get Win10 to go into safe mode from this configuration. As soon as Win10 starts running, it just stops seeing that my keyboard is there at all, so F8 and/or Shift-F8 have no effect -- Windows never sees any input device is there from the time it starts its automatic "repair".
If I do have to reformat and lose everything, or if I have to pay a repair shop to restore it, I guarantee the next computer I buy (and all those I get down the road) will have a fruit with a bite out of it featured prominently on it...
I was installing win10 on my pc with media create and got to the screen where it asks you for the keyboard layout. The computer does not respond and the hdd light stops blinking.When I kill the power and reboot, the computer loads properly into windows 7 desktop then says that windows 10 could not be installed and says this:
Error 0xC1900101-0x20017. The installation failed in the SAFE_OS phase with an error during BOOT operation.
Yesterday I set my Bulgarian keyboard layout to be the default one and my German to be the secondary. Then I shut down and today when I tried to log in, only the Bulgarian layout was enabled (Cyrillic letters) and I can't switch to the German layout (Latin letters). You guessed it - my password uses Latin chars . The key combinations Alt+Shift or Win+Space are not working.
Password reset works only with pre-made passdisk or something like that (I haven't set one). I tried going to Troubleshoot mode, but couldn't find anything useful there yet. Running the command prompt troubleshooting option gave me the opportunity to change the keyboard layout, enter my password and use the cmd prompt. There I tried to use the "control" command to set the keyboard layouts but it doesn't recognise the "control" command. Maybe I have to navigate somewhere else (default was system32).
I'm trying to reset my PC to get out a temporary user profile I'm stuck on. Every time I start the reset process, I am sent to a frozen Choose Keyboard Layout screen. I can't use my mouse or touchscreen to choose a layout.
after updating win7 to win10 i immediately customized my start menu tiles and it looked really awesome while still being organised. After encountering numerous problems with poorly migrated programs i did a fresh install ( like a month ago) and havent been able to find that same perfect arrangement.
where is the layout for the tiles in the start menu stored?
i still have the .vhd from the backup so i can find a file if necessary, but i dont know where the info is stored.
I have my laptop hooked up to an external display via HDMI. The projection settings made using Winkey + P gets reset to "Duplicate" every time I reboot, and I have to go in and manually change it back to "Second screen only".
Is there still a way to set this permanently? With Win 7 and 8.x there was a "Multiple displays" option under the Screen Resolution control panel, but this control panel seems to have been completely redesigned in Win 10
Since upgrading to win 10, I am having problems with sound not being permanent. Don't quite know how to approach it. This is VIA HD audio on an ECS motherboard. The icon on the taskbar shows that sound is on, and at 75%. But when I test it, there is no sound coming through the speakers. So I uninstall the driver, I scan for hardware changes; it reinstalls itself. Then I check the configuration, it's set to headphones as default. I change it to speakers, test the sound, and it works. Now when I restart my system for some reason, the sound is gone again, and I need to go through the same routine. I have downloaded the specific driver for VIA HD (they only have a driver for Win 8), installed it, and it doesn't work at reboot. make my driver more permanent, so that it's not lost at reboot?
I am using a Toshiba 64-bit laptop running Windows 10 Home, 8gb memory, 1T hard drive.
For almost a week, I have been unable to change from one app to another by clicking on them on the Taskbar. To access a different app, I have to minimize all the apps I have open and then click on the one I want on the Taskbar.
I looked at the recent Windows updates and saw some updates to MS Office. I did a repair on MS Office but that did not fix anything. Since this involves all applications on the Taskbar, it would seem to be a Windows problem
My wife and I both have exactly the same computer - HP Touchsmart 620 - upgraded from Win 7. Our preferences include hiding the Language/Keyboard icon by customising the Taskbar & Start Menu options, and also turning off the touch screen function which now in Win 10 we can only do by disabling HID Compliant Touch Screen through device manager. Here's the thing, my customisations stay, but my wife's default back to showing the language bar and activating the touch screen after every reboot, even though the HID Compliant Touch Screen is still disabled in Device Manager.
Today I have suddenly lost my desktop wallpaper screen just all black accept for my few icons down the left hand side of the screen and the taskbar along the bottom. Have checked in my settings, personalization page and their all there but it will not accept any change to the screen and display it. As I am still learning to use the new windows 10, I accept that it could be my own fault while I am exploring the new systems I tried going back over all the things I have experimented with.
Just upgraded to windows 10 and on 7 I was using Ultramon, a super awesome multi-monitor program. Needless to say, ultramon doesn't work on 10 but 10 has some pretty great multi-monitor functionality already.
I've got two monitors and I have taskbar shown on both and buttons are set to show on taskbar where the window is open. What I'm trying to do is hide the Start Menu, Cortana search, and task view buttons on the non-primary monitor taskbar.
Also, I'm wondering if it's possible to change the Windows keyboard shortcuts? Trying to change the shortcut for switching between desktops to something other than Ctrl + Win + (Left/Right)
