From Control Panel open Keyboard.

On the "Locales" page you can add various keyboard layouts and interpretations.

On the "Hardware" page you can select your specific keyboard layout and default interpretation.

I used the "Hardware" page to change my keyboard from "US" to "US-International" thus allowing me to use Ctrl-Alt-Q to generate an a-umlaut. I could equally well have used the "Locales" page to *add* an additional "US" keyboard with the "US-International" layout as an alternate Locale so that I could switch between stock "US" and "US-International" at will.
