Vista -- no keyboard layout button

  Florio 21:41 25 May 2010

I have an Italian version of windows vista, and so the keyboard and language settings are naturally in Italian. But for a particular music notation software I've just bought, I need to change my keyboard temporarily to English (U.S.). English is installed by default as a second language on my pc, but for some reason there is no keyboard layout button on the task bar. How can I get the button to appear? (I have already followed the advice given on the Microsoft site, to no avail).

No, not really. Sorry.
I've contacted the author of the software in question, and I should change my keyboard to US layout. According to my control panel, this layout is installed but I cannot get the keyboard layout button to appear on the task bar.

Reading the web there seems to be a number of users who have had this problem and I cannot find a reliable fix. I cannot experiment as I don't have a second language installed. But I wonder if Left Alt + Shift would be a workround click here

Left Alt+Shift does indeed change the default language from Italian to English, but not the keyboard layout; I cannot do this unless I have the relevant button displayed.
