there is a shortcut to do that
go to regional & language options from control panel
then go to languages
then go to details
add keyboard layouts
then go to "key settings" and assign a shortcut to scroll through them

Thanx for the reply but, that not what i'm looking for....let me explain....i work for an company that is migrates from win98 to winXP. When we imaged a workstation there are lots a things that needs to be done...like install network printers, set regional settings...etc.

The problem with the keyboard layout is that there are about three different keyboards(Microsoft, Compaq, IBM) all with different layout. We install all these layouts in our image but, we need to remove the one's we don't needs...for example if the user has an IBM keyboard then the layout must be Dutch...and therefore US and US-International layout must be deleted. I know that this sounds silly but we haven't got the smartest users :-) I'm currently greating an application that lets you install an network printer, and in the future set the keyboard correct. this saves us time and time is money....hahaha
