Windows 7: How to Add supported layout to the On-Screen-Keyboard?

How to Add supported layout to the On-Screen-Keyboard?

The drop down menu on the On-Screen-Keyboard is something i have been able to do before I'm just not sure how i did it.

I am using UMPC and desktop PC with touchscreens so the onscreen keyboard is something i use quite often, I speak English and Swedish but am slowly learning the Polish language here where I live now and thus need a practical access to their alphabet special characters on my Swedish QWERTY keyboards, this is an excellent use of the virtual keyboard but I have previously added the supported installed languages to the drop down menu of the keyboard which is more practical than changing in the system tray or using the keyboard short-cut combination I've assigned as a make-shift solution.

Please help.
