Windows Tip of the Day – Change the keyboard layout for the Welcome Screen


Using an azerty keyboard, I’m always having issue when I have to take the ownership of a Windows 7 / 2008 environment that was configured with a EN-US layouts.
Fortunately, it’s fairly easy (once you know where to look at !) to apply your current settings to the welcome screen :

Control Panel -> Regional and Language Settings -> Administerative -> Copy Settings -> Click the check marks (at the bottom) to the welcome screen and accounts that you want to copy the settings to and click ok
