Keyboard layout issue in Remote Desktop

When i use mstsc on my local "Windows 10 20H2 build 19042.1645" to connect to "Windows server 2019 build 17763.2746" then after disconnecting my local keyboard layout get sometimes messed up (i didnt figure out root cause of this).

On BOTH machines i have exactly same langunage settings:

  • "Czech" language with "Czech (QWERTY)" keyboard
  • "English (United States)" language with "US" keyboard < default

but when i click (on local pc) on language bar in tray it shows those:

  • CES Czech \n Czech (QWERTY) keyboard
  • ENG \n US English (United States) \n US Keyboard
  • ENG \n CSQ English (United States) \n Czech (QWERTY) keyboard
  • ENG \n INTL English (United States) \n United States International Keyboard

But ENG \ CSQ and ENG \ INTL arent pressent in Language settings and only way to remove them from tray is to add them to language settings and remove them.

I already tried to add DWORD to Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout\@IgnoreRemoteKeyboardLayout=1 and it didnt help.
