It is impossible to define the keyboard of my PC as being an Azerty. Whatever you changes you make to the Samsung Keyboard definitions. And so what I type appears as …

" I bought q Sq;sung S10 qnd tested the Zindozs Link? "

Problem appears to be a known bug, but never solved
 
This bug  makes the "Link to Windows" rather useless, in French -speaking environments.
I guess the problem is linked to the Samsung  keyboard driver "Samsung_MDX_virtual_keyboard" which is loaded when linked to the PC.

I have the same problem.

Devices  used to test:

Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra, Android 10 latest version

Samsung Galaxy S8, Android 9.

Windows 10 laptop.

 

My laptop keyboard is set a local keyboard layout (Belgium AZERTY in my case). My Android device's keyboard settings (both for physical and on-screen keyboards) are ALL set to this local layout as well. However, when typing on my laptop's localized keyboard, in the Phone Screen function, a QWERTY layout is used on the Android device. (Note: in Your Phone's Messages function, the correct keyboard layout is used). No changes in settings could correct this erroneous behavior.

The problem is solved with the latest update of the Link to Windows App in Samsung Store.

Thank you
