I am based in the UK and I have two Keyboards, UK and GR. Every time I open the Archicad UKI Solo, US keyboard it appears on my keyboard layout. Does anyone know why this is happening? Is there any setting that enables that and can disable?

Does this happen when you start the software or while you are using it?
I think there is some key combination in Windows that I kept accidentally hitting (while working in Archicad) to switch keyboard settings too and I managed to turn this off in the windows settings.
It was probably something with holding down SHIFT or CTRL or something silly like that.

Unfortunately, this happens when starting Archicad. I forgot to mention I am using windows 11. I did also what they mention here: https://community.graphisoft.com/t5/Setup-License-forum/Keyboard-language-icon-taskbar/td-p/231666 with no luck.

The combination I kept hitting is ALT-left and SHIFT for anyone wondering (I just looked it up).
Your keyboard settings can be found at 'language and time/date' or something similar (our Windows is Dutch, so I'm freely translating here), assuming they haven't changed that from WIN10 to WIN11. You can remove the US keyboard from the list, if that layout is never used.
You can also change if certain languages even have a keyboard associated with them.

Every time that this happens the US language is not showing up under Language and region
To be able to remove it from Keyboards layout I need to add it manually and then remove it again.

Yep, that looks totally different from WIN10.
We also use the US layout keyboards a lot in the Netherlands (at least I do), so I might not even be noticing a bug if it does occur with WIN10.
I do have Dutch setup with having a 'dutch' US layout keyboard and Czech (my other installed language) as having no keyboard. So you'd think there is still a way to do this in WIN11, unless they removed functionality.

Unfortunately no luck with anything. In a few weeks, I will have a new Desktop PC and start working on a fresh installation. I will see what will happen there and I hope this problem stops.

The problem is still there. On a new Desktop with clean Windows 11 pro installation. English UK display language. English UK and Greek keyboards. The moment I start/open Archicad UKI Solo, US keyboard appears but only at the bottom switch Keyboard layout.
Can someone from Graphisoft have a look at that? It's extremely annoying. This is happening only with Archicad App. Is there a setting in Archicad that enables EN-US keyboard as necessary for the shortcuts to work? Can you please find a solution?
