At first this may seem like a duplicate question, however; I can assure you it is not, and I have searched extensively for the answer to no avail.
I was working away in PowerPoint, when suddenly the keyboard layout spontaneously decided to become French. This was quite puzzling, since I did not have the French keyboard layout installed at any point, so it cannot be the common, "Oops, I accidentally hit Alt + Left-Shit, again." issue.
WHAT I'VE TRIED
- I've looked into the keyboard settings in the Region and Language Settings, and verified that US is the only keyboard layout installed.
- I checked to make sure the word French appears no where in the locale, regional or language settings.
- I installed the French keyboard, switched to it and back - FAIL
- I uninstalled French and installed Canadian Multi-language, switched to it and back - FAIL
- I installed a Cyrillic keyboard and switched to that. When I start typing, lo and behold, FRENCH!
I am at my wit's end with this problem.
Point of Clarification
By stuck in French, I mean that, while I only have a single keyboard layout installed (US), the actual typing method is French, as in the forward slash produces é, and the open square bracket produces an accent on whichever character follows ê. Having only one keyboard layout installed, I do not have an EN for English, an FR for French, or even an SB for Serbian, because there is no need for a language bar when a single input language is installed. For whatever reason, irregardless of which single keyboard layout I install, the only output on screen is that from using a French keyboard layout. Even in my troubleshooting steps, when I did have multiple languages installed and the EN showed up, when I type, it it as though I am using the French layout. When I switched to Serbian Cyrillic, the SB showed up, but still the behavior of using a French layout remained. It matters not which layout I actually have installed or activated, French input prevails. Hence, "Stuck on French".
