    I use shortcuts Ctrl+Number to switch between input languages. A week ago or so this feature was broken in a weird way - when I press Ctrl+Number and start typing, first symbol is that number used in shortcut regardless of key pressed even space. This works in all browsers, in Office apps but not in Windows apss like Notepad, explorer or Run dialog. I have shortcuts mapped from Ctrl+1 to Ctrl+4, so this bug appears only with these numbers, when I press Ctrl+5 nothing happens.


    This appears on laptop and PC, both with Windows 10 and latest updates.

    Shortcut Key for Language Input?

    Hello,

    So an older feature that you could use in the Control Panel through the clock/region/language settings was to set shortcuts for the language input on you computer's keyboard. This allowed me to shift through multiple languages by using combinations like
    Ctrl+Left_Alt+(number) to switch. So I would set it like 0 for English, 1 for Spanish, 3 for Japanese, and 5 for Greek. This was a really useful feature for multiple languages since it allowed you to change through a long list of inputs without going through
    the entire list via either clicking a language on the taskbar, or using the less useful shortcut to cycle through each language.

    From other posts, it's to my understanding that Microsoft is gradually shifting the features of Control Panel to the general settings, allowing the features to not be fragmented on different interfaces. I'm very happy to hear about these changes, but it
    seems that this shortcut function has yet to be re-implemented.

    I guess my first question is whether the feature still exists and has just been moved to a location I haven't found yet. If it has been deleted, I was wondering if there are any plans to replace it, or if there is any way I could produce my own shortcuts
    through either an alternative Windows service, or through a third-party application.

    Lastly, a minor complaint I had with the original setting is that it always reset with every new Windows update. So after an update, I had to remap all of my language shortcuts. Note, this is on my personal laptop, so I don't think this is an issue with
    some administrative setting deleting any template (though I may be wrong). If it is (or will be) in the settings, I was hoping that my shortcuts would be saved through each update.

    Thank you!
