Windows 11 - Issue with Japanese (106/109) keyboard on RDP

New Contributor


I work in a Japanese company. Of course currently we work remotely very often and use the windows Remote Desktop for it. By default Windows 10 have some problems with Japanese keyboards - some of the buttons do not work correctly, such as 英数、半角/全角 and 無交換 buttons, which are crucial to comfort typing in Japanese. In Windows 10 you can, however, fix this issue by changing the registry at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\KeyboardType Mapping\JPN address from kbd101 to kbd106. Unfortunately, this solution no longer works in Windows 11. Are there any other way to fix this issue, maybe with a more user-friendly way?

Looks like the issue has been resolved - today Japanese keyboard suddenly began working as intended again.
