  1. At last! Why does it have to be so complicated! It’s so important for all Latin and Germanic language speakers , so basically every Western European language!!!

  2. Thanks so much for this article. It really helped. It was killing me trying to figure out how to get the US-Intl keyboard on my Windows laptop. Everyone else’s articles led to options not available in my Settings.

  3. I’ve been searching for that info for like a week and you were the only instruction that worked.
    Thank you!

  4. Thank you for the breakdown with pictures. Other instructions did not get me to where I needed to be, your instructions were dummy proof, worked like a charm.

  5. O my windows 10 english, in Step 6 – Select United states – International from the list
    the list appears only 6 keyboard icons but no text so I don’t knou what to choice.

  6. I rarely leave comments on such helpful pages but yours really is saving me from a lot of frustration. Thank you so much for making this article and making it so easy for us!

  7. Oh you have no idea what a relief for me this was. I had always had to change the language to write á, é, etc… and then ()… This is just great, thank you so much!

  8. Thank you so much, The Greek Page!
    I’d gotten used to the Eng US Int keyboard and after buying a new computer just couldn’t find the way to install it. Can’t believe it’s so tucked away in Microsoft’s workings. You solved a great problem in my typing life, and relieved me from a lot of frustration and even anger in my computer experience.
    Thanks again!
    God bless you.
