Are you tired of the new keyboard layout on your Android device? Do you find it difficult to type and want to change it back to the normal layout? Look no further, as we have a step-by-step guide to help you revert your Android keyboard back to its original settings.

Step 1: Open Settings

To begin, unlock your Android device and navigate to the Settings app. You can usually find this app in your app drawer or by swiping down from the top of the screen and tapping on the gear-shaped icon.

Step 2: Find Language & Input

Scroll down in the Settings menu until you find Language & Input. This option may be located under different names depending on your Android version or device manufacturer.

Step 3: Select Keyboard Settings

In the Language & Input menu, look for an option labeled Keyboard. Tap on it to access the keyboard settings for your Android device.

Step 4: Manage Keyboards

In this section, you will see a list of keyboards installed on your device. Look for the keyboard that is currently active or selected. It is usually marked with a checkmark or highlighted in some way.


If you have multiple keyboards installed, make sure to select the one that you want to change back to its normal layout.

Step 5: Configure Keyboard Settings

Tap on Configure keyboards, Keyboard configuration, or a similar option that allows you to modify individual keyboard settings. This will open a new screen with additional options.

Step 6: Reset Keyboard Settings

Look for an option to reset the keyboard settings. It may be labeled as Reset to default, Restore default settings, or something similar. Tap on this option to revert your Android keyboard back to its default layout.


Please be aware that resetting the keyboard settings will remove any customizations you have made, such as personalized dictionaries or language preferences.

Step 7: Confirm Reset

A confirmation dialog box may appear, asking you to confirm the reset action. Read the message carefully and tap on OK or a similar button to proceed with resetting your Android keyboard.

Step 8: Test Your Keyboard

Exit the Settings app and open any app that requires text input, such as a messaging app or a web browser. Tap on a text field and your keyboard should now be back to its normal layout!


If the keyboard layout hasn’t changed, make sure you followed all the steps correctly and reset the correct keyboard in Step 4.

  • To avoid accidentally changing your keyboard settings again, you can remove any unwanted keyboards from your device by going back to Step 4 and deselecting them.
  • If you still prefer an alternative keyboard layout, you can explore different third-party keyboards available on the Google Play Store.

Congratulations! You have successfully changed your Android keyboard back to its normal layout. Enjoy typing effortlessly once again!
