  1. I don’t know how this happens. The UK keyboard suddenly appeared from the system. It caused trouble everytime I switched to another language input method. Thanks to the solution, I deleted it and it is back to normal.

  2. worked for me too, i had this issue with the en-GB language + US keyboard layout appearing when all I usually have is en-AU language + US keyboard layout. Bizarre bug, it has come back once already but the same steps remove it each time
