  1. Keyboard & language suggestions

    I have many languages installed on my laptop running Windows 10, so I'd like to suggest a small but useful feature on how to make swithing languages with Win + space easier and faster. So let say you have 2 main languages you usually use (english and your native) and also sometimes you use other languages that you learn for example. So I want switching langs to work like swithing apps on Win + tab: single clicks on Win + space will switch you between 2 most recently used languages and double clicks (Win + Space + Space) will switch to 3d additional language. So even if you have 10 languages, Win + space will always be switching you between your 2 main mostly used languages. What are you thought on this?

    Also I would like Windows 10 to show when caps lock is turned on (on the task panel) OR when I accidentally or by purpose click on it there will be shown a small notification in the middle of screen with "A" (capital letters are chosen) or "a" (small letters are chosen) as it is in Deepin 20 for example (linux desktop environment).

    The extra keyboard layout keep adding to my language bar (with Pics)

    Hi Panupong,

    The updated Windows 10 may have detected your language, the reason why it automatically gave you the other Thai US keyboard. To correct this issue, we suggest that you follow these steps:

    • Click on the Start Menu, type in region and language settings and select it.
    • Under Languages, select Thai Kedmanee keyboard and click Remove.
    • Lastly, add it back by clicking Add a language.

    After these steps, your keyboard layout will permanently stay with Thai Kedmanee keyboard.

    Let us know if the steps above resolved your issue.

    Windows 10 keyboard language keeps changing

    Great! I found it by searching Input method as you suggested (full path is Settings -> Typing -> Advanced keyboard settings).
    - I've set "Override for default input language" to "French (Canada)" instead of "Use language list".
    - "Let me use a different input method for each app" was already unchecked
    - I've disabled the key sequence to switch between input languages in (Language bar options -> Advanced key settings)

    I hope it did the trick, I'll mark this as solved if the keyboard does not change back by tomorrow.

    Thank you!

    Keyboard language mess up

    Hi Julie,

    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Community Forums.

    • What is the make and model of the computer?
    • When you say that your preferred keyboard language disappeared or was deleted, did you try reinstalling it?
    • If yes, were you able to reinstall it?
    • If No, what happens when you try to reinstall it or any other keyboard language?

    Kindly provide some more details so that we can suggest the appropriate troubleshooting steps.

    Meanwhile, make sure that Windows is up to date. I would suggest to create a new user account and see if you can add/remove the keyboard languages.

    Create a local user or administrator account in Windows 10

    We look forward for your reply.
