Change Language on Provided Laptop
Most laptops we provide have been configured with Linux and (hopefully) have both Russian and Ukrainian languages enabled. Both system language and keyboard language may need changing. The keyboard language is easy - click the little flag in the bottom right hand corner.
System language needs "Language" changing. Click bottom left hand corner and start to enter "Language" in the dialogue box. Usually just the letter "L" starts this option. Change the three flags to the one desired and go from there.

How we do it...
Operating system - we have given up routinely installing Windows 10. We use Linux Mint which can be downloaded following the Getting Started page on the IW Linux User Group site. To the basic installation can be added the appropriate language packs for system language and keyboard layouts for keyboard language - separate things. We also install Zoom, Telegram, Viber, Dolphin file manager. Libre Office comes as standard.
Languages - to change the keyboard input language click the little flag in the bottom right corner - we set the laptops up to offer English, Ukrainian and Russian. To change the whole computer to Ukrainian or Russian then look for "Languages" in the menu options. We set the laptops up to easily change to Ukrainian or Russian. We provide stick-on Cyrillic key tops as required.
