Change the keyboard for an existing language in Windows 11

The problem: You’ve added several languages with different keyboard layouts to Windows 11.

However, you want all of them to use the same keyboard (in this example “United States-International”).

The solution

In the language bar, click on More keyboard settings (or go to Settings > Time & language > Language & region).

Click on the three dots on the right of the language you want to change and choose Language options:

Windows 11 Language & region settings: Language options

Under Keyboards, click on Add a keyboard and add the keyboard you want:

Windows 11 Language & region settings > Language options: Add a keyboard

Finally, remove the original keyboard:

Windows 11 Language & region settings > Language options: Remove a keyboard

Your language bar should now show multiple languages with the same keyboard:
