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.

    • Hello,

      Thank you for providing this information about the issue. We are pleased to report this feature is fixed in Edge 15063 and is available in our latest Insider Preview build.

      Best Wishes,
      The MS Edge Team

    • 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.

    • The issue is still not not fixed. I have updated to 41.16299.15.0

    • The following fixes the issue, unlike the rest of windows Edge seems to be querying the hardware keyboard layout in the registry even when other languages are set to use the Japanese keyboard layout

      • Open Region & Language settings
      • Add a language
      • Select Japanese
      • Back at the Region & Language settings page select Japanese, then Options
      • Change the Hardware keyboard layout to Japanese (106/109 key)
    • I have the same issue, everything uses UK keyboard except for edge which is using US
