    Can't switch languages with Alt+Shift after upgrading to Win10

    Just upgraded my Yoga3 from Win8 to Win10, and by that disabling any way to switch between local inputs using alt+shift. It's possible now only when clicking the language name on task-bar, but not with keyboard shortcuts. the "switch language" feature is
    turned on as before with same definitions. It just stopped from working..

    How can I resolve it?

    How do I disable the Alt+Shift overlay when changing languages?

    I'm using a P34W v3(AU) laptop from Gigabyte. Windows version is 1903 and the build is 18362.356. I tried following your instructions but I couldn't seem to find anything that would help me. The problem isn't the shortcut itself as I use it all the time
    and it's really useful for switching between languages, but the panel that shows itself when pressing Alt+Shift/Shift+Alt and then letting go of Shift first is what's causing me problems. I have no idea why, but letting go of Alt first after using the same
    shortcut doesn't bring up the panel at all, so I'm just trying to find a way to get the same result when letting go of Shift first. Is there an option somewhere that let's me disable the panel? I thought something in the registry editor might help me but I'm
    not entirely sure what I'm looking for.

    Changing languages with right-alt + shift stopped working

    Windows 10 home.

    Used to be, you could use both left-alt and right-alt + shift to switch between languages.

    Then, some years back, only left-alt + shift switched between languages, whereas right-alt + shift went always to secondary language. That was a pain, but not a show stopper.

    This is!

    After latest Windows Update, right-alt + shift is dead.

    I opened Control Panel > Clock, Language and Region > Language > Advanced setting > Switching input methods > Change language bar hot keys > Change Key Sequence

    the only options there are:

    1. Not Assigned

    2. Ctrl + shift

    3. Left Alt + shift

    4. Grave Accent (`)

    Right-alt + shift is gone!!!

    How do I get it back?

    I've been doing the same thing to switch languages since Windows 3.0, I think. It's massively frustrating to do it instinctively only for it to not work all of a sudden... Seriously annoying. How can I fix it?
