How to Change Keyboard Layout in Windows 8

Recently I installed Windows 8 for my new PC. But for some reason, I only manage to install it with the UK keyboard layout. The UK layout is different from the “standard” layout that I normally use. So, here is a guide on how to add/change keyboard layout in Windows 8.

1. Hover your mouse pointer to the top right corner to bring out the “charm” and select the search charm.
