  2. Unable to remove a Language for the keyboard or the hotkey

    Hi,



    Windows has the capability to use different language packages to fit the needs of the customer. Not being able to remove a language pack could be due to data files that got corrupted. To resolve your concern, kindly answer the questions below:



    • When did the issue start to occur?
    • Were there any changes made or updates installed prior to the issue occurring?
    • Which version and build of Windows 10 is installed on your device?


    Also, you can follow the steps below to disable the hotkey in switching in between different languages installed on your device:



    • Click "Clock, Language, and Region" from the control panel.
    • Click "Language"
    • Click "Advanced settings" in the left column. ...
    • Under "Switching input methods", click "Change language bar hot keys"
    • Select "Between input languages" and click "Change Key Sequence"
    • Disable/change the keyboard shortcut as you'd like.


    We look forward to your response to our queries.

    Language Hotkeys Don't Work


    I have a friend who is bilingual who is trying to get the Korean language working properly on their computer, and asked me for advice. Before I helped them on theirs, I decided to install it on my computer to make sure I knew how language packs work. I installed the language pack fine, but whenever I use a hotkey, it says it changed from English to Korean on my screen, but I can only type in English.

    I know the language pack worked, because I can go into individual applications, change the default language to Korean, and restart the application - at which point it works fine in Korean. If I use the hotkey to swap languages, it tells me it's in English, but I can only type in Korean. Same problem, the default language is the only one that works. In talking with my friend, it sounds like this is the same issue they're having.

    My friend uses their computer for multiple things, some of which cater more to English-speaking people and some which cater more to Korean-speaking people, and they want to be able to swap back and forth. Other people who use the computer are multilingual and want to access even more languages. How can I make it work in Windows 10 that when I turn on the Korean keyboard, it types in Korean, without having to change default settings in the application I'm using and restart the application?

    how to change hotkey for language swapping?

    Windows 8.1 update changed the language, can't change back

    Maybe, these will help... it seems it is a common enough problem.

    Language packs are no longer available after you upgrade to Windows 8.1

    And, sort of the same here --> Add a language or keyboard

    Quote from above MS web page:

    Spoiler Download and install language packs
    You'll need to download the language pack if you want to make a language your Windows display language (that's the language you see most often in Windows and apps).
    • Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, tap Settings, and then tap Change PC settings.
      (If you're using a mouse, point to the lower-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer up, click Settings, and then click Change PC settings.)
    • Tap or click Time and language, and then tap or click Region and language.
    • Tap or click a language that says Language pack available underneath, and then tap or click Options.
    • Tap or click Download. The download process might take a while, depending on your PC and the size of the language pack.
      If you want to make this your display language, see the next section "Change your Windows display language".
    Change your Windows display language
    To change your Windows display language (that's the language you see most often in Windows and apps), first add a language, download and install the language pack, and then follow these steps.
    • Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, tap Settings, and then tap Change PC settings.
      (If you're using a mouse, point to the lower-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer up, click Settings, and then click Change PC settings.)
    • Tap or click Time and language, and then tap or click Region and language.
    • Tap or click the language that you want to set as your display language.
    • Tap or click Set as primary to move the language to the top of the list. If the language can become your Windows display language, you'll see Will be display language after next sign-in appear under the language.
    • Sign out and then sign back in to finish.
    And here is some more info --> Add Language Packs to Windows
