You need the little taskbar/tray icon which lets you change the
alphabet with the mouse, and which also shows you which alphabet
Here is how to get this:
1. When you are on the “Text Services and Input Languages” window,
click the button “Language Bar” and put a check-mark in the box
“Show the Language bar on the desktop.”
This will put a tiny window on the desktop.
2. You can minimize this window and it will minimize to between
the taskbar and the tray -- as shown in the screen-shot above.

If text is appearing at the right side of a field, I would suspect
you have a right-to-left alphabet activated. The language bar icon
will let you see this and change it if needed.
Also check out whether the Language bar has any additional settings
for right-to-left alphabets which could affect this. I can’t advise
here -- I do have more than one alphabet but none are right-to-left.
