I've set up so that Windows remembers my input language preference for each app, it works really well (US-English as default with Swedish for some apps) until I close the apps/restart the OS, then it forgets and reverts back to English again. Is there a setting to prevent this from happening? I want it to always remember my language preference for each app.

I'm on Windows 10 Fall Creators Update Version 1709 if that matters.


Please try this option, and then set your preference input method for different apps:

Start > Settings > Time & Language > Region & language > Additional date, time & regional settings > (under Language) Change input methods > Advanced settings > (under switching input methods) Check on "Let me set a different input method for each app window"

  • Not trying to be rude here but did you even read the question? I have that set up already and it works very well, until I close the app, then when I open it again, it's reset to English, my question is how do I make it remember when I open the app again? – Daphen Oct 25 '17 at 9:40
  • This option is set to remember the settings. Did you mean that it didn't work on 1709? – Kattee Lee Oct 26 '17 at 3:01
  • It works until I close the application, when I open it back up again it has been reset to the default input language. I want it to remember the preferred language for each app even after I restart the computer. If I choose Swedish for all of my messaging apps and then restart the computer, they're all back to English again when I get back into Windows. – Daphen Oct 26 '17 at 22:07
