    Windows 10 "Left Alt + Shift" language input switch suddenly stop working. It used to work before.

    Hi Jida,

    There are a few reasons why "Left Alt + Shift" is suddenly stopped working on your computer. Since you mentioned that you already tried some troubleshooting steps, we suggest that you create a
    Test Profile. From there, check if the issue occurs.

    To create a user profile, follow these steps:

    • Go to Settings. Click Accounts.
    • Select Family & other people.
    • Select the Add someone else to this PC tab.
    • Name the user as Test.
    • Leave the password field blank.
    • Hit Next.
    • Sign in as Test user.
    Let us know how it works.

    Keyboard Issues, LEFT SHIFT + LEFT CTRL + L/R ARROW doesn't work on travelmate P645-S windows10

    Recently i am facing issues with my laptop. Key combinations doesn't work especially with SHIFT.

    List of combinations (Not working) :

    LEFT SHIFT + LEFT CTRL + LEFT ARROW

    LEFT SHIFT + LEFT CTRL + RIGHT ARROW

    LEFT SHIFT + LEFT CTRL + UP ARROW

    LEFT SHIFT + LEFT CTRL + DOWN ARROW

    RIGHT SHIFT + RIGHT CTRL + RIGHT ARROW

    List of combinations (Working) :

    RIGHT SHIFT + RIGHT CTRL + RIGHT ARROW

    CTRL + C, CTRL + V, CTRL + X

    Other than above 'working' combinations no other combination works with CTRL and SHIFT

    Please let me know why this issue is occurring!

    Is this a hardware issue/ software issue?

    i have updated keyboard drivers, also uninstalled and restarted laptop & let drivers install automatically.

    Also i have checked if laptop's keyboard is loose or anything... everything is fine on that side.

    P.S.

    Recently i have upgraded my 4+4 GB RAM to 4+8 GB RAM

    this RAM is DDR3 and may not be original left shift not working :p

    left shift not working

    Windows + Shift + right doesn't shift window to the right screen (shifting to the left works fine)

    When I use Windows Key + Shift + left the active window jumps to the monitor on the left like expected left shift not working :)
    But when I try to do it the other way around: Windows Key + Shift + right the window doesn't jump back to the right left shift not working :( Nothing happens. Why? How can I fix this?

    PS: I am using Windows 10 Version 1903 (64 bit) on my ThinkPad with two additional external monitors.
    Windows Key + right moves the window correctly to the right (step by step but not directly to the next monitor).
    Maybe the Windows Key + Shift + right was overwritten by something else? How can I find out?
