Step 1: Press Win+C on your keyboard to lunch the Charm bar and then choose Settings.
Step 2: Now select Change PC Settings.
Step 3: From left pane select the General section.
Step 4: From the right pane, under Language, click on Language preferences link.

Step 6: Under Input method, click on Add an input method link.
Step 7: From the list of available input methods, select your keyboard layout and then click on the Add button.
Step 8: Now, click on the Save button located in bottom right.
