We have Turkish and UK English keyboards both loaded as we need Turkish most of the time but when the PC is turned on it always defaults to English.

If I drag Turkish above English in Preferred Languages then it defaults to Turkish but all menus and program names become Turkish which we don't want.

How can I make everything English except keyboard input?

This never happened in Windows 10.

Hi,

In Settings time and language, go to Language.
At the third block where you have English, click the three dots to open and click language options.
Then in the keyboards paragraph click add a keyboard.
Now add the turkish keyboard. This is now installed for the english display language.
Then in the System Tray or by pressing Windows Key + spacebar you can toggle between English and Turkish keyboard .
Your choice will be remembered.

Ciao, Han

Paste code below into an admin CMD. I am also Turkish and my hobby is fix useless windows features. Let me know if you run into any issues.

reg delete "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\International\User Profile System Backup\en-US" /v "0409:00000409" /f
reg delete "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\International\User Profile\en-US" /v "0409:00000409" /f
