You can switch between available keyboard layouts in Windows 11, by using a shortcut Ctrl + Shift. It also can be done manually by clicking on keyboard layout in the bottom bar:

If you don't see QWERTZ or QWERTY keyboard layout in the list, you have to add it. To add a new keyboard layout, go to Settings and click on Time & Language:

windows 11 settings time language change keyboard layout

Then click on Language & region:

windows 11 settings language region keyboard typing

Click on the three dots on the displayed language and choose Language options:

windows 11 time language change add keyboard layout

You should see the list of added keyboard layouts. Click on Add a keyboard and select one from installed layouts:

After a keyboard layout is added, you have to select it by using a shortcut Ctrl + Shift or in the bottom bar.
