I want to enable the "United States-International" keyboard layout in Windows 8, but the option for it seems to be missing. Is there any way to enable it?

  1. Go to Control Panel.
  2. Under Clock, Language and Region, click Change input methods.
  3. Click Options to the right of your language.
  4. Click Add an input method.
  5. Select United States-International / Touch keyboard layout. (I'm not sure what "touch" means here.)

Future note for anyone else: you can quickly switch between the inputs with Windows key + Space bar – Bryan Denny Jun 12 at 15:53
