Microsoft Windows Terminal Services enables remote users to use programs on a remote server as if the user is logged in locally to the server. If Terminal Services is configured to use a particular keyboard layout, then the Terminal Services administrator must modify the server registry so that the local default keyboard layout is used when a terminal session is established. Use the Registry Editor tool to enable Terminal Services to change the remote user terminal keyboard layout.
