I've been trying to prevent Windows 11 from changing the keyboard language without permission. It happens most often when returning from sleep mode.
I usually keep it set to ISL (Icelandic) and know about the :win:+Spacebar to switch languages. But it's still like a annoying chore and i can't find anything to stop
Windows 11 Home edition default back to english without permission.

Are there any solutions?

The default on start up (and probably resuming from sleep) is to use the keyboard layout at the top of the list of installed keyboards. If yours is not the 1st in the list, then try setting your preferred keyboard layout here:

I'm testing the first option in the link provided by Bree. But i'm keeping the thread open in case it acts up again. I have put it to sleep once but it usually happens and after long sleep modes not mere minutes or fast restarts.

One more thing to suggest...

If you're only switching the language, and no need to switch keyboard too (some languages need extra characters, US not) you can change the keyboard under other languages to match your actual keyboard. In this case, only default language will change, but keys would remain as phisically present

See in my example.. I have Slovenian and US English languages installed, but only Slovenian keyboard.

My is laptop is from United Kingdom laptop but i managed to find a move up button. I know that language packs don't work and i also prefer english compared to the display text.
I still hope that my laptop will stop pranking switching it back without permission.

It's important which keyboard layout you have installed...

Under each language (three dots on the right) you can select which layout do you use. Just select the same layout, and remove extra layouts that you don't have

I did find what you did but like your image it's locked on both languages. It still looks like the Move Up that i found earlier has done the trick for now

Great if it works for you. If that delete button is locked, then there is only one keyboard assigned to a language. You have to add other keyboard layout, and then remove unwanted one. In my case it is Slovenian layout on all languages.

I can confirm that Moving Up the language worked and didn't have to use the :win: +spacebar
