I am about to order a laptop online that comes with AZERTY keyboard layout. If I install English US which is the one I prefer to use will it automaticall go to QWERTY or will it remain the same? IF it remains as AZERTY how can I change it to QWERTY?

I will propably be using Win8 or Win10

    Using the US keyboard driver it will become a QWERTY keyboard. But the button labels won't change ;-) – marsh-wiggle Dec 29 '14 at 10:30

You didn't specify your OS, so I dont know which layout it will be, but I will assume that you are on Windows in case that it doesn't change automatically you can do that like this:

  • Go to the Start button and open "Control Panel"
  • Choose the option "Clock, Language and Region"
  • Select "Regional and Language Options" and in the "Installed Services" section, click "Add"
  • If your keyboard is set to "French" (AZERTY) change it to "English US/UK" and if your keyboard is set to an English language (QWERTY), change the language to "French" (AZERTY).
  • In the "Keyboard" section, choose "QWERTY" or "AZERTY" and apply the changes by clicking "OK"
  • ah yes, sorry, Win8 – John Demetriou Dec 29 '14 at 10:30
