Q: US International Keyboard for Windows 10

In Windows 7, I configured my keyboard to use the “US International Keyboard” so that I could type some other language characters e.g. Ä,ä,Ö,ö,Ü,ü,Í,í,Ñ,ñ,Ó,ó, etc, etc. I used the right Alt key and e (right Alt + e) to produce é. I have now upgraded to Windows 10 and cannot find this option. How can I activate this US International Keyboard?

Thanks HFr.

I upgraded my laptop and cannot find the option either. I don't have a mouse. Where is the option in the Settings?

Thanks.

I also would like to have the international keyboard back. The answer about the mouse driver is totally incorrect and in the wrong place. It has nothing to do with the mouse and everything to do with the fact that there is NO international keyboard option in the control panel.

I finally found it!! Go to Settings from the windows icon at bottom left.  Click on Time and Language, the Region and Language.

You should see English (United States) ...[assuming you are in US]. Click on it and a button labeled OPTIONS will appear.

Click on the OPTIONS button. Now you will see an option to ADD a KEYBOARD. Click on that and then scroll down the list until you see United States International. Click to add it to your language bar (should be in system tray)

Works just like previous versions after you add it.

Bravo! And thank you so much AnnBP!

I followed your steps and also tested – (successfully, proven e.g.: áéíñ¿äüö)  -  the process in this reply note, in MS-Word, MS-Excel and MS-Outlook. Feels like "Good O'l Time" 

Please, let me add one more step after your last instruction:

If you have not removed the original Keyboard (at step ADD a KEYBOARD), you will now have two (2) Keyboard options in the system tray.

To switch between the two input methods (i.e. Keyboards), Press the Windows key + Space.

Have fun and thanks again, Hfra

I keep trying this, but I do not see United States International as an option when trying to add a keyboard. Is this a language pack that I might have to download or something?

@LMedendo

I followed AnnBP’s instructions and it worked for me. I do not have a special Language pack.

When you get to “ADD a KEYBOARD" Click on that and then scroll down the list until you see "United States – International QWERTY". Click to add it to your language bar (should be in system tray)

The keyboard name is:

United States - International

QWERTY

 

In the system try it appears as:

ENG

English (United States)

Try again and good luck!

You have no idea how happy you just made me. I'm a college student taking three languages this semester and I was on the verge of tears trying to fight with the other keyboards, as I had used international in high school. Thank you so much, oh my goodness. You've saved my life.

worked for me, and added a step. It kept defaulting to the UK keyboard. So with the two there I clicked on the UK one and pressed the delete key.
