further to:
"Control Panel/Regional settings is where you want to be"

Languages tab, and click on 'Details' for the keyboard language options

It can be easier than that :)
Use left hand ALT and SHIFT to toggle between layouts.

This is the reason many find it gets mixed in the first place... easy to catch the keys in that sequence when typing.
