Have you ever found yourself in a situation where your Android keyboard suddenly changed its layout, making it difficult for you to type? Don’t worry, you’re not alone.
Many Android users have faced this issue at some point. In this tutorial, I will guide you through the steps to change your keyboard back to its normal layout on Android.
Step 1: Open Settings
To begin the process, open the Settings app on your Android device. You can usually find it in your app drawer or by swiping down from the top of the screen and tapping on the gear icon in the notifications panel.
Step 2: Locate Language & Input
Scroll down through the settings until you find the Language & Input option. It is usually represented by an icon with an ‘A’ and a keyboard.
Step 3: Select Keyboard Settings
Tap on Keyboard & Input Methods, which will take you to a list of all the keyboards installed on your device.
Step 4: Choose Default Keyboard
In this list, locate and tap on ‘Current Keyboard’. This might be named differently depending on your device and manufacturer.
Step 5: Change Keyboard Layout
In the next menu, you will see various options related to your current keyboard. Look for ‘Layouts’, ‘Keyboard Layout’, or a similar option.
- If your keyboard supports multiple layouts:
- Select ‘QWERTY’ or ‘Standard’ to revert back to the normal layout.
- If your keyboard has only one layout:
- Toggle the switch to turn it off and then turn it back on. This will reset the keyboard layout to its default setting.
Remember that the names of these options may vary depending on your device and Android version, so look for similar options if you can’t find an exact match.
Step 6: Test Your Keyboard
Exit the settings and open any app where you can type, such as a messaging app or a web browser. Try typing something using your keyboard, and it should now be back to its normal layout.
- If you are using a third-party keyboard app downloaded from the Play Store, make sure to check its settings for any specific options related to layout changes.
- If you still can’t find the option to change your keyboard layout, look for alternative keyboards in the Play Store that offer more customization options.
By following these simple steps, you can easily change your Android keyboard back to its normal layout. Remember that different devices might have slightly different settings menus, but this guide should work for most Android devices. Happy typing!
