Steps to reproduce

Edge does not correctly recognize the keyboard layout. It seems to be stuck on the U.S. keyboard layout, even when I select the Japanese keyboard layout.

Note: this problem only exists within the app itself, such as when using Ctrl+F to find a work on a page. Typing "[" on my Japanese QWERTY keyboard layout produces "]", which is the key in the same position on the US QWERTY layout. If I open a website and type directly into a text field - such as this one - I get the correct characters.

The same error does not arise in Chrome or Firefox.

    • I have Microsoft Edge 40.15063.0.0 and this issues is not fixed.

    • I can confirm I also have this issue on 40.15063.0.0. Japanese physical Keyboard, language set to English + Japanese layout, but Edge seems to be stuck on US layout. Other languages work with their correct layout on Edge, and the layout for English works fine in the rest of the OS.

    • I updated to 41.16296.0.0 using the preview feature and the issue is still there.
