1. Click Start and then click the Settings icon (which is shaped like a gear).
2. Click "Time & Language."
3. In the navigation pane on the left, click "Language."
4. In the "Preferred languages section," click your language (i.e., "English") and then click "Options."
5. Scroll down to "
6. Close Settings. Once you add a second keyboard language to Windows, a language control button will appear in the taskbar, in the lower-right corner of the screen. Click it, and in the pop-up menu that appears, choose the language you want to use with your keyboard.
You can always return to the taskbar to switch back to your original keyboard language.
