  1. My keyboard language keeps switching


    I am a 3D designer so I use shortcuts that contain ctrl/alt/shift realy often and because of that I am probably unintentionally hitting some shortcut that is switching my language because it changes a lot and that is realy inconvinient. For switching language I usually use windows key + spacebar. How do I deactivate all other shortcuts so I don't accidentally use them anymore?

    :)

    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!

  3. Problem with the new keyboard language switching menu

    Hi Jugan,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    The default keyboard shortcut to switch between system language is by pressing the
    Windows and Spacebar keys.



    So, if you don't want the language menu to appear while playing the game, then I suggest you to change keyboard shortcut by following the below steps and change the keyboard shortcuts for changing the system language or keyboard language.



    1. Go to Settings > Click on Devices > Click on
      Typing from the left pane.
    2. Scroll down and click on Advanced keyboard settings and click on
      Input language hot keys.
    3. In the Advanced Key Settings tab, you will find the key sequences for the input languages that you can change as your preference.


    If you would like me to provide additional advice, simply respond to this thread. I will get notified and I’ll reply to you as soon as I can.

    My keyboard language keeps switching

    Norwegian keyboard showing up when switching input language

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I appreciate your effort on this. I understand that you see Norwegian keyboard when you switch between the input languages. As you have checked the installed keyboard languages using PowerShell and didn’t find the keyboard language, I suggest you to
    refer the troubleshooting steps mentioned below and see if you are able to find the keyboard language:



    1. Press Windows key + R, to open
      Run
      dialog box.
    2. Type lpksetup and click on
      OK
      .
    3. Click on Uninstall display languages.
    4. If you find Norwegian keyboard listed, click on it and click on
      Next.
    5. Follow the on-screen instructions to remove the language pack.


    Let us know how it goes. If the issue persists, we will be glad to help you further.



    Regards,

    Nikhar Khare
