How to Change the keyboard layout in Windows 10

The keyboard layout varies from language to language and country to country. Even when countries have the same basic language (ex. English) you can have different layouts. For example, the U.S. Qwerty and U.K Qwerty layouts are very similar (but not the same).

You can use the information below if you have just purchased a new replacement ASUS keyboard with a different layout from the original or simply if you find yourself using a keyboard that is not suited to your use.

For example, if you are using a U.S. Qwerty keyboard and are more familiar with a U.K. keyboard than you can change the layout as shown below. If you need a visual reminder of where certain keys are like the € or £ symbols, for example, we will show you how to view the on-screen keyboard.

NOTE: You will not need to change any settings if you are replacing a keyboard with an identical one.

Please let us know if you need any assistance in locating a replacement keyboard for your ASUS laptop.
