    Windows 10 constantly and insanely switches to another keyboard layout


    Hello. I've been having a weird issue for the last two days with Windows 10 10586.17. Normally I use the Spanish - Latin American keyboard layout besides the English - US one. Windows recently decided to add Spanish - Spanish (which is really different from the other one) and is constantly changing the layout to that one without my intervention! (That is, even without pressing alt+shift the layout will change by itself after a while.)

    Even stranger, while both Spanish layouts are shown in the language switcher menu left to the clock in the taskbar, both the old Control Panel and the new Settings App show only the correct Spanish - Latin American keyboard layout. This means I can't even uninstall the wrong one. The only solution so far is to choose the correct layout with the mouse from that menu every time it changes.

    What can I do? It's driving me insane.

    Thanks!

    ps: the accent key is located differently on both layouts, so this affects 95% of the words that I write

    :)

    Missing feature to switching input language (keyboard layout) without using mouse

    Switching keyboard layout without using mouse is missing in Windows 10.

    Previously, in Windows 7, we are able to use Control + Shift or customize key combo to switch different keyboard input layout.

    In Windows 10, we have move our hands away from keyboard, use the mouse, change keyboard layout, then go to back type.

    From this perspective, it seems moving backward.

    How do I switch keyboard layout without using mouse?

  3. Windows 10 Keyboard layout all fixed to English qwerty

    I recently upgraded my computer to Windows 10, but there is an issue with switching keyboard layout.

    I use two keyboard layouts: English and Korean. I usually switch layout using right ALT, but somehow keyboard layout stays English after pressing right ALT. So, when I checked keyboard layout, the display says it is Korean, but when I see preview it is English
    qwerty keyboard.

    Is there any way to use the keyboard as I used to?
