It's not so much the keyboard change that F's me up (Japan uses a similar layout to UK keyboard), it's that it changes the bloody system language every time.

Thank you Microsoft but I set it to English because I can't read F'ing Japanese, and I have to keep the location set to Japan or the Windows store, Office 365 etc all don't work (Oh, and thanks for making those bloody difficult also, ensuring that the online parts only show in the language of my location as opposed to the chosen system language).

Luckily "muscle" memory gets me to where I need to be to change the language settings back, but it would be tremendously difficult for anyone who neither reads Kanji nor can get to the language settings from memory.
