About Virtualization, VDI, SBC, Application Compatibility and anything else I feel like
Today I shadowed a user’s session in Citrix and when I wanted to type something I noticed that the keyboard layout was incorrect.
This is and old “friend” that I always tend to forget about. So hopefully this post will help me to remember it :D.
You can prevent this by adding a value “IgnoreRemoteKeyboardLayout” to the registry key HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Keyboard Layout:
reg add “HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout” /v IgnoreRemoteKeyboardLayout /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000001 /f
If you want to change the keyboard layout that is used before logging in (“at the logon screen”) you need to modify the key HKEY_USER\.DEFAULT\Keyboard Layout\Preload:
In the screenshot above the locale id 0413 (Dutch) but you can even add more than one entry and cycle between them with ALT-SHIFT.
A description of the Locale ID’s (LCID’s) can be found in kb 262283.
