Enabling International keyboard layout in Win 8.1

I went to Control Panel->language,
and I added US Int. to the preexisting US layout.

But I do not know how to activate this and make it the top choice. So far, I might as well not have Int. installed, as the keystrokes that formerly under Win 7 would produce special characters and accents now are unrecognized.

Any ideas would be very much appreciated as it is a hot day and this can get frustrating fast.
